F1 23 Mexico Car Setup: Best Race Setup

Here is our recommended F1 23 car setup for Mexico. This track is very tricky to create a car setup for with both fast and slow sectors. This setup really creates a fast yet balanced car for longer distance races.

Mexico is a really tricky track in F1 23, being both hard to drive fast and really master, as well as being tricky to create a car setup for.

The mixture of extremely slow 90-degree corners through the first sector along with very fast sweeping corners in the middle sector really test your car’s balance in vastly different ways. Any car setup for Mexico will be a compromise, but the goal is to create a car setup which performs as well as possible through each different sector around Mexico. Easier said than done.

Aerodynamic setup

OK, so around Mexico, no matter how much downforce you put onto the car, you’ll always feel like you haven’t got enough. So I have lowered the downforce so the car is as quick as possible in a straight line, while still keeping enough front and rear aero to be quick through the twistier segments of the track.

Go with 25 on the front wing aero and 20 on the rear wing.


Transmission setup

With so many slow corners, traction is critical. So make it as easy as possible on yourself and go for both on and off throttle differential setups of 50%.


Suspension Geometry

For the suspension geometry, I’ve opted for a minimal camber and toe setup. And yes, I use minimal in the correct sense of having as little angle as possible in the lean of the wheel. Something that Codemasters never seem to get right by labelling the lowest amount of camber as maximum, which I’ll never understand.

But go with -2.6 and -1 on your camber set up and 0 and 0.1 on the toe setup.


Suspension setup

Now, the suspension setup really focuses on a softer approach. Around Mexico you will be riding up and over all of the kerbs at almost every corner. During both the slow and fast corners, minimising the corner angle will save you a lot of time.

So soften your suspension to 22 at the front and 9 at the rear. Then set your anti-roll bars to 7 and 2, and your ride height to 33 and 36.


Brake setup

For the brakes, I’ve opted for 100% brake pressure like normal. And I’ve carried over our brake bias setup from COTA, with a bias of 56%. This will help reduce braking distance into the slower corners.


Tyre setup

Finally, I’ve increased our front tyre pressures a little to 22.9psi. This will improve the overall responsiveness a touch. Then I’ve kept the rear pressures low to help with traction at 20.3psi.


Overview

And that rounds out our Mexican car setup for F1 23. This setup will give you a very fast car in a straight line, making overtaking as easy as possible. And it certainly is possible down the very long pit straight.

I’ve also softened the suspension down to make the car handle well over all of the kerbs, some of which are relatively large through the slow corners.

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