Now we get to possibly my all-time favourite track in an F1 game Silverstone. Now I may be slightly biased that this is my home Grand Prix and I’ve been lucky enough to visit here, but Silverstone is both one of the most exciting tracks to watch a Formula 1 race and actually race in F1 23.

The combination of fast corners, slower corners, and the sequence from Maggotts through to Chapel really make this track stand out. There are plenty of overtaking spots and as long as you don’t have a car setup with too much downforce, you can have a really strong race in F1 23.

Aerodynamic setup

I have opted for an aero setup of 26 at the front and 22 at the rear. This ensures the car is responsive which is crucial through the sweeping esses. This setup is a little on the lower side compared to some time trial car setups.

However, during a race, you’ll need a lower downforce approach than you do during a time trial session. As this will allow you to defend and overtake.


Transmission setup

The transmission setup is not a surprise if you’ve seen any of our other F1 23 car setups. Go with 55% on throttle and 50% off throttle diff. This really is the best approach with almost all F1 23 car setups.


Suspension Geometry

Now for the suspension geometry, things are a little different to most F1 23 car setups. I’ve gone with front camber of -2.5 and rear camber of -1.5. Then I have lowered the toe right down to 0 at the front and 0.12 at the rear. This is designed to optimse the car for the straight parts of the track to minimise drag, as well as factoring in tyre wear.


Suspension setup

I’ve kept the front suspension relatively stiff to ensure we have good responsiveness, while I’ve lowered the rear. Go with 28 at the front and 8 at the rear for the suspension.

Then go with anti-roll bars of 8 and 1 and a ride height of 33 and 35, which is actually really low for an F1 23 car setup. Silverstone is incredibly flat and smooth without many high kerbs so a low ride height is optimal.


Brake setup

The brake setup is pretty standard at 100% brake pressure and 56% brake bias. You can lower the brake bias for some corners such as the approach to the final chicane if you notice any front wheel locking.


Tyre setup

Finally, the tyre pressures are on the lower side to help preserve tyre wear. But overall, tyre wear is very balanced with this car setup. Go with 23psi on both front tyres and 20.5psi on both rear tyres.


Overview

And that will complete our Silverstone F1 23 car setup. This is another setup like our Jeddah one, where it produces an extremely fast car. With our Jeddah car setup, I was completely dominant over the AI and had to increase the AI difficulty. The same is true with this car setup.

Let me know if you find this car setup just as dominant in the comments below.

For now, enjoy this setup and I’ll see you on track.
