Hungary is a track in F1 23 that is deceivingly tricky. You may look at the layout and think it’s just like any other permanent track, however, the high number of corners, along with the speed that they come at you makes this one of the tougher tracks in F1 23.

Many will say that Hungary is similar to Monaco, and that is true in terms of our car setup, with many similarities. Thankfully the Hungarian track in F1 23 feels as good as it ever has, with low kerbs and a layout that lets you really push your car.

Aerodynamic setup

Hungary requires an extremely high aerodynamic setup. With most of the track being comprised of corners with very few true straights, higher downforce will benefit you more than prioritising straight line speed.

Many will run their front wing at 50, but I have lowered it to 46 and also lowered the rear wing aero to 42. This is designed to give you a small advantage over the AI who will typically run slightly higher downforce levels.

This will allow you to be competitive down the straights and be able to overtake during a race.

Transmission setup

With a track that is so reliant on downforce through slow to medium speed corners, it is no surprise to see our transmission setup at 50 for both on throttle and off throttle.

The low on throttle diff setup will maximise your traction when accelerating out of corners. And the low off throttle diff setup will maximise your rotation into slower speed corners.

Suspension Geometry

Being a slower track allows us to setup our geometry to include higher levels of toe. I have set the camber at -2.8 and -1, which is pretty normal.

Then I increased both the front toe-out and rear toe-in to 0.04 and 0.19. This approach will increase our car’s liveliness in a good way. It’ll become more responsive through the first part of a corner and the rear toe will help it remain stable.

Suspension setup

For the suspension setup, I have kept the front of the car relatively stiff to help eliminate understeer which can be a real killer around Hungary in F1 23. Set this to 30, and then set your rear suspension at 8.

For your anti-roll bars, go with 8 and 1, and then set your ride height to 35 and 36.

Brake setup

For the brake setup, I’ve opted for 100% brake pressure as normal, and I’m also running our normal brake bias approach of 55%.

Tyre setup

I have gone ahead and lowered tyre pressures for a few reasons. The first is to increase traction at the rear of the car, and the second is to reduce tyre temperatures which can build up during a race.

Go with 22.5psi on both front tyres and just 20.1psi on both rears.


And that will round out our Hungary car setup. As I mentioned, this is a really technical and quite tricky circuit to master. However, you can really attack the kerbs in F1 23 as they seem a lot more forgiving.

One area to really keep an eye on during a race is your rear traction and grip mid corner. Some of the longer corners such as turn 1 and 2 as well as the last couple of corners do really test your rear downforce levels.

You can increase your rear wing a touch if you struggle in these areas, although it will reduce your straight line speed a touch.

Enjoy this setup and I’ll see you on track.
