The Red Bull Ring in Austria is one of the fastest and most flowing circuits in F1 23. There are a good combination of corners from extremely slow almost hairpin turns through to medium speed and fast turns.

This diversity really tests your car’s balance and stability. The rear car stability is important due to the faster corners which can cause some problems with rear grip if your car isn’t setup properly.

But thankfully, this setup doesn’t suffer from those problems. Instead, it’s fast during a full lap and competitive across a whole race distance.

Aerodynamic setup

The aerodynamic setup is relatively low due to the extremely long straight right after the pit straight. There are three long straights in total, meaning a higher downforce setup just won’t work.

Go for 19 on the front wing aero and 15 on the rear wing aero. This provides good front end bite when you throw the car in towards the apex. And not lowering the rear aero too far, ensures it can keep up during the faster turns.


Transmission setup

With the extremely slow turn 3 and rather tricky turn 1, it’s no surprise that I’ve set the on throttle differential setup to 50%. This will aid with traction through both of these corners. Then set the off throttle diff to just 51%.


Suspension Geometry

Our suspension geometry incorporates the ideology of most F1 23 car setups with both front and rear camber being set towards the max. Set the front to -2.6 and the rear to -1.

Then lower the toe, but not all the way. Set the front toe to 0.02 and the rear toe-in to 0.16.


Suspension setup

The suspension setup for the Red Bull Ring in F1 23 is pretty aggressive. I’ve kept the front suspension pretty stiff. This will allow the front end to be incredibly responsive when you throw your car into the faster corners towards the end of the lap.

There also aren’t too many high kerbs around Austria so we don’t need to soften the car to account for those. Then at the rear, go with a suspension setup of 10. For the anti-roll bars, go with 10 and 1. And for the ride height, go with 33 and 39.


Brake setup

Then for the brakes, I’ve gone with our usual route of 100% brake pressure and 54% brake bias. You can increase the brake bias into turn 3 if you want to shorten the braking distance. But ensure it’s back to 54% before the next corner.


Tyre setup

Finally, I’ve set the tyre pressures all on the lower side with the fronts higher than the rears. This is very normal for F1 23. Go with 22.9 on the front tyres and 20.3psi on the rear tyres.


Overview

And that rounds out our Austrian car setup for F1 23. This is without a doubt one of my very favourite tracks, and it’s slap bang in the middle of a few of my other favourites with Canada just before and Silverstone right after.

With this car setup, you can be happy that your car will remain stable throughout a race distance while giving you the speed along the straights and through the corners so you can challenge for the race victory.
