Australian F1 22 setup
Australia made a welcome return to the Formula 1 calendar in 2022. We were able to race around Melbourne in last year’s F1 game, however, it hasn’t see real-world racing since 2019. Thankfully that has now changed, and we also have an adjusted track layout as well.
The Melbourne street circuit has a few corners that have been changed to improve the flow of the circuit. F1 22 will be the first game that we officially get to race around the new and improved Australia circuit.
New track layout
The new track layout for F1 22 features reprofiled turns as well as the complete removal of two corners.
Turns 3, 6 and 15 have all been reprofiled to have wider, faster and more flowing apexes. This has meant that you can race through these corners faster in F1 22 without the need to slow your car as much.
These reprofiled corners were designed to give the track a better flow, making it faster and more exciting to both watch and race around.
These changes are small in comparison to the changes that have happened at the old turns 9 and 10. This used to be a relatively slow chicane taken at third gear. In F1 22, these two corners are completely gone. They are now very fast kinks that lead onto the back straight.
This change means drivers have a longer straight to catch and potentially overtake cars in front. And it also makes turns 11 and 12 extremely fast and more thrilling!
Melbourne car setup changes for F1 22
These new changes to the track layout have had a large impact on your F1 22 Austrailia car setup. The removal of the slower chicane of turns 9 and 10 increases the average speed around a lap. This lessens the need for a higher downforce car setup.
That effect is also amplified thanks to the faster and reprofiled turns 3, 6 and 15. All of these changes mean you will be racing at higher speeds for longer, and there is more emphasis on your top speed in F1 22.
One of the big braking points and heavy traction zones (turns 9 and 10) have been removed. This will aid with tyre wear, meaning tyres will last a little longer around the Australian circuit in 2022.
Rear traction is less important meaning you can increase your on-throttle differential setup. You can also run a more aggressive stiffer suspension setup. Both of these car setup changes weren’t possible around the old Melbourne layout.
Tyre wear isn’t normally a problem around Melbourne, and that has only been made better with these new changes. Without the need to set up your car for tyre preservation, you can create an aggressive setup instead, one that is closer to a time trial setup than a traditional race setup.
These changes will give you a car that is a little more on the edge compared to previous years. Couple this with the new aerodynamic regulations for 2022, and you will find racing around Australia in F1 22 a must more fast-paced, energetic experience.
