F1 23 Best Asetek Wheel Settings

The Asetek La Prima, Forte and Invicta wheel bases all work stunningly well with F1 23. To make them perform at their best, here are our recommended force feedback settings for F1 23.

While not being a full sim game, F1 23 does go some way towards being more realistic to drive. The cars have a more realistic sense of grip and traction in F1 23 compared to previous games. And this can really be felt when racing with a racing wheel.

Asetek is a Danish company that have released some of the best direct drive wheel bases in the past 12 months. The La Prima, Forte and Invicta wheel bases all produce incredibly detailed and strong force feedback, and all three feel great in F1 23.

In this guide, I’m going to look at the best force feedback settings for all Asetek wheel bases in F1 23.

Asetek F1 23 Wheel Settings

While all three wheel bases offer different strength outputs, all three utilise the same technology internally. This allows us to create a single set of wheel settings which can work well with each of the three wheel bases in F1 23.

Below are both our recommended in-game F1 23 wheel settings along with our recommendation for the most optimised Asetek RaceHub settings.

It is highly recommended that you change both the settings in F1 23 and RaceHub to get the best force feedback.

F1 23 In-Game Settings:

  • Vibration & FFB: On
  • Vibration & FFB Strength: 100
  • On Track Effects: 35
  • Rumble Strip Effects: 35
  • Off Track Effects: 25
  • Wheel Damper: 45
  • Understeer Enhance: Off
  • Wheel rotation: 360°

RaceHub Settings:

  • Steering Range: 360°
  • Bumpstop Hardness: Soft
  • Bumpstop Range: 5°
  • High Frequency Limit: 3300 Hz
  • Damping: 15%
  • Friction: 5%
  • Inertia: 2
  • Cornering Force Assist: 2
  • Overall Force: 13Nm
  • Torque Behavior Prediction: 1
  • Torque Acceleration Limit: 6.7 Nm/ms
  • Anti-Oscillation: 2%

Asetek F1 23 wheel settings explained

Below is an explanation of each of the settings within Asetek’s RaceHub software. Asetek provided some recommended wheel settings themselves, and we have tweaked these a little bit to create our own recommended settings. Below I’ll talk about what I changed compared to Asetek’s settings and why.

Steering Range: 360°

I’ve started by setting the steering range to 360°. This dictates how far the steering wheel will rotate from lock to lock and should always be set to around 360° in F1 23.

Bumpstop Hardness: Soft

The bumpstop hardness changes how the bumpstop feels once you reach the full steering lock. This is very much personal preference, but soft is my go-to choice as it doesn’t feel too harsh.

Bumpstop Range: 5°

The bumpstop range gives a little bit of an offset to the steering lock. In this case I have it set to 5° but again this is very much personal preference.

High Frequency Limit: 3300 Hz

The frequency limit is where we get into actually changing the force feedback. This setting changes the overall frequency range of the force feedback. I have this set to 3300 Hz which is what is recommended by Asetek.

Lower settings will reduce the amount of detail you get from the force feedback, but in turn lower settings will make things a little smoother all round.

So far, at this stage, our wheel settings match the recommended ones from Asetek. But with the damping that changes and we go in a little different direction to Asetek.

Damping: 15%

For the damping, I’ve lowered it a touch over the 20% that Asetek recommend. I’ve opted for 15% damping. This just removes a little bit of the added weight that the damping setting adds to the wheel.

Damping in general will add weight to the wheel as you rotate it. This is something that is required to make the wheel feel more realistic, but too much damping can make the wheel feel a bit too heavy or sticky.

Friction: 5%

While I lowered the damping by 5%, I also increased the friction setting by 5% over Asetek’s recommendations. This adds an effect which isn’t too different to damping. Instead, this simulates friction between the tyres and the track surface.

Again, much like damping, higher values will increase weight and resistance in your steering wheel. Although, unlike damping, friction doesn’t smooth out the overall force feedback detail to the same level.

Inertia: 2

I have increased the inertia to 2, again differing from Asetek’s recommendations. They set their inertia to completely off. This adds some additional weight to the steering wheel, but does so differently to damping and friction.

This simulates constant inertia put on your car, which will resist direction change if your car is already under load. This adds a little more weight to the wheel, but introduces a more realistic sense of inertia to the force feedback.

Cornering Force Assist: 2

I’ve set the cornering force assist to 2 which is what Asetek recommend. This setting will reduce the force feedback through prolonged corners which can be helpful if your wheel feels incredibly strong through longer corners.

The by-product of this is that it increases individual road and track details in the force feedback that could otherwise be lost due to the overall strength of the wheel.

Overall Force: 13Nm

The overall force is the main strength controller. This will dictate the maximum torque that your wheel can output, and this is the one setting which should be set differently depending on which Asetek wheel you’re using.

The Asetek Invicta is capable of extreme forces of up to 27Nm, the Forte can produce 18Nm of peak torque, while the La Prima is rated at 12Nm.

If you are running a La Prima, I’d recommend maxing this out to 12Nm to get the most from your wheel.

If you’re using a Forte base like I am, I’d go for around 13-14Nm of peak torque which is right in the sweet spot.

Finally, if you’re using an Invicta wheel, you can push this higher. Although I still believe around 13-14Nm of peak torque is ideal for F1 23 with the Invicta wheel base.

Torque Behavior Prediction: 1

For the torque behaviour prediction I’ve used the recommendation from Asetek and left it at just 1. This is a really tricky setting to tune as it ranges from smoothness and responsiveness, but I think 1 is just right.

Torque Acceleration Limit: 6.7 Nm/ms

The torque acceleration limit is essentially the slew rate. This will affect how fast the force feedback can change. I’ve set this to 6.7 Nm/ms which is essentially the highest that my Forte wheel base can produce. This keeps the force feedback on its toes and allows it to change as fast as is required.

With an Invicta wheel base, you can increase this even further up to almost 10 Nm/ms.

Anti-Oscillation: 2%

The anti-oscillation setting does exactly what it says on the tin. It reduces any oscillation that can happen either while travelling straight, or at high speed or during some other scenarios. I have this set to 2% just to ensure I don’t run into any oscillation issues at all, which F1 23 can be quite prone to.
