F1 22 Monaco Car Setup – Best Race Setup

Monaco is one of the trickiest tracks on the whole Formula 1 calendar. It's extremely tight and technical, and rewards drivers who are willing to push to the edge of the track. Here is our Monaco race setup.

F1 22 Monaco Setup

It’s no secret that Monaco is without a doubt my least favourite track in F1 22. It’s extremely tight and technical and completely unforgiving, especially if you are racing with simulation damage turned on!

To succeed around Monaco, you need to focus on your car’s downforce and traction when creating your setup. And you need to be able to drive consistently lap after lap. If you can achieve both of these things, you’ll go well around Monaco. And failing that, just try to create a rocket ship for qualifying and manage the race from the front of the grid.

This setup isn’t that qualifying rocket ship. Instead, it’s a well-balanced and very driveable setup for the race. You’ll be able to drive consistently without having to worry about the car being too unpredictable. And you’ll have good tyre wear with this setup, giving you an advantage with your race strategy.

Aerodynamics

For the aerodynamic setup, it’s no surprise that we have set our front and rear wing close to maximum. In fact, I have set the rear wing to the maximum value of 50, with the front wing being lower at 44.

This is designed to prioritise the rear-end stability. There are a lot of low-speed, heavy acceleration zones, and the last thing you want around Monaco is to light up the rear tyres under acceleration.

We can find additional front-end grip elsewhere in our car setup, so lowering the front wing will increase your straight-line speed a little.


Transmission

For the transmission, I’ve lowered the on-throttle differential down to 58. While, we can go lower on the on-throttle diff, and this would help improve traction a little, keeping it away from its minimum value will help us maintain drive through the sweeping corners of turns 3 and 4, as well as around the swimming pool chicane later in the lap.

Go with 55 on your off-throttle diff for extra rotation at slow speed.


Suspension Geometry

For the suspension geometry, go with a front camber of -2.6 and rear camber of -1.2. This will balance the car nicely through the medium-speed corners, as will a front toe of 0.08 and rear toe of 0.39.


Suspension Setup

I’ve softened the suspension in order for it to be able to handle the various bumps and kerbs around this street track. Go with 5 on your front suspension and anti-roll bar, and 1 on your rear.

Then go with a ride height of 3 and 4.


Brakes

For the brake setup, opt for 100% brake pressure and 50% brake bias to avoid locking up.


Tyre Setup

Then reduce the tyre pressures slightly at the rear while keeping the front balanced for added responsiveness. Go for 23.8 on both front tyres, and 21.3 on the rears.

Overview
