F1 23 Jeddah Car Setup: Best Race Setup

Here is our recommended F1 23 Jeddah car setup for Saudi Arabia. This setup performs incredibly well during races, giving you a really fast car in a straight line as well as ensuring good tyre wear during a full race.

Next up on the calendar, and next up to receive our car setup treatment is Jeddah. This is a fast and frantic circuit where corners just don’t seem to stop coming at you.

In F1 23, Jeddah is particularly tricky due to its high reliance on a low drag setup for the long straights, and mechanical grip and downforce through the fast and furious corners.

This custom car setup for Jeddah in F1 23 is hugely successful, and results in an absolute rocket ship of a car. If you enjoy this setup, or you liked our Bahrain car setup last week, let me know in the comments. Also, subscribe to be the first to see when we drop a new F1 23 car setup video.

Aerodynamic setup

Now jumping into the car setup itself, as I mentioned this car setup results in a car that is mightily fast around the entire Jeddah circuit.

I’ve opted for a relatively low downforce approach, and this results in being able to easily keep up with and simply drive straight past the AI along the straights.

I’ve gone for a higher front wing aero compared to the rear at 22, and this is designed to help the front of the car generate the downforce needed to be able to throw your car into the fast corners.

The rear wing aero is set to 20, which ensures that the rear of the car can keep up with the front. And it makes sure that it sticks to the road through the fast direction changes and crucially when accelerating hard out of turn 13.


Transmission setup

For the differential, I’ve kept things low, which just ensures that rear traction isn’t an issue. With a relatively low rear aero setup, you could run into a few issues finding traction if you run your on throttle diff too high.

So I’ve opted for the lowest of low setup choices and gone with an on throttle diff setup of just 50%. Then, to promote front turn in, particularly through the slower corners such as turn 1 and turn 27, I’ve set the off throttle diff to 53%.


Suspension Geometry

The suspension geometry can be set to our usual approach of almost far right on the camber and almost far left on the toe.

I’ve set the front camber to -2.5° and the rear camber to -1.1°. Then I’ve gone and set the front toe to 0.01° and the rear toe to 0.13°.

Tyre wear isn’t too much of an issue with this setup, even when I tested it in a full distance race. So you could even be a little more aggressive on the geometry setup if you’d like.


Suspension setup

The trend with F1 23 car setups seems to be a stiffer front and softer rear. This gives good responsiveness while ensuring the rear of the car remains compliant.

While our last car setup at Bahrain softened everything right down, I’ve actually kept the front of the car setup pretty stiff. The kerbs around Jeddah can be a little harsh, especially the kerb after turn 10, so if you do struggle a little over kerbs, feel free to soften the front of the car a little more. It will just sacrifice a little responsiveness.

I’ve opted for a front suspension setup of 29 and a rear setup of 6. Then go for front anti-roll bars set to 14 and rear right down at just 2. For the ride height, I’ve opted for a front ride height setup of 35, while the rear is set to 39.


Brake setup

I really like how the brakes feel in F1 23, with the sensation of rear locking being much more realistic. Not running brake bias at 50% really satisfies my inner desire for a realistic F1 sim.

For this setup, and for almost all of my F1 23 car setups, I’m running the brake pressure at 100%. And I’ve gone for a brake bias of 56%, which seems to be the sweet spot this year.


Tyre setup

The last part of our Saudi Arabian car setup for F1 23 are the tyre pressures. I’ve set the front pressures higher than the rear to enable a bit more initial responsiveness. Go for 22.9psi on the front right and 23psi on the front left.

Then for the rear pressures, set them to 20.3psi on the rear right and 20.5psi on the rear left.

The offset between left and right tyres is to preserve the side of the car that takes the most punishment, which around Jeddah is both tyres on the right hand side of the car.


Overview

And that will complete our F1 23 Jeddah car setup. I’m really happy with this car setup, as during testing I could absolutely blast past the AI, and had to really increase the AI difficulty up compared to other tracks.

This setup is pretty aggressive, with a heavy emphasis on straight line performance. But during a long race, you won’t suffer with tyre overheating partially thanks to the cooler temperatures at night.

Let me know your thoughts on this car setup in the comments below, and I’d love to hear your thoughts on this year’s F1 game so far. Are you enjoying it?

But for now, enjoy this F1 23 Saudi Arabian car setup, and I’ll see you on track.
