Austria F1 22 setup
The Red Bull Ring in Austria is one of the shortest tracks on the F1 22 calendar, but it is certainly one of the more fun tracks to drive. The corners around the Austrian circuit are predominantly fast and flowing, with a few long straights to aid overtaking.
The fast nature of the Red Bull Ring means races in F1 22 will be exciting and eventful. And you need to have your F1 22 Austria car setup optimised to allow you to attack every corner around this circuit.
With Austria being one of the fastest circuits to race on F1 22, you will require a very efficient low downforce car setup. In fact, only Spa, Monza and Silverstone have higher average speeds than Austria in F1 22.
You will still require enough downforce to allow you to get your car turned into some of the slower corners. And you will need to ensure your car is extremely stable as you’ll be throwing it into some corners at very high speeds.
To ensure your car is stable through high-speed corners you’ll require slightly more rear aerodynamics than you do front. Your front aero should be pretty low with your rear a little higher. This gives your car a very planted rear end. This is even more beneficial in F1 22 due to the cars having less downforce overall compared to last year’s cars.
Turns 6, 7, 9 and 10 are extremely fast, meaning your car will need to be stable enough to allow you to throw your car into each of these corners. If you run too little downforce you will need to take these corners at slower speeds which will cost you lap time.
Thanks to Austria being extremely fast, your need for a lot of traction isn’t huge. There is one very slow corner and that is turn 3. This corner will require you to manually lower your on-throttle differential as you approach, and utilise very good throttle management.
The rest of the circuit consists of mid-speed and fast corners meaning you can run your on-throttle differential pretty high. This will maximise your outright traction, giving you a better drive through and out of each corner.
You wont need to worry too much about breaking traction around the majority of the circuit with the exit of turn 3 being the most traction dependent corner. Ensuring you get a good exit out of turn 3 is crucial though as it does lead on to a second long straight with potential overtaking opportunities into turn 4.
In F1 22 Austria is a track that features a lot of undulation, and some large kerbs that you will want to be driving over to maximise your performance. All of these different bumps and changes in track surface will negatively affect the balance of your car. So ensuring your setup is tuned to deal with these is important.
Unlike most high-speed tracks, Austria is a track that favours a softer suspension setup. Creating a soft suspension setup allows you to ride right on to and over kerbs throughout the lap without too much worry that your car can’t handle it.
If you were to stiffen your suspension, it would make your car very twitchy and unpredictable over the kerbs. Throughout a long race in F1 22, a more stable car would result in more consistent lap times without the worry of having to manage your car’s stability.
Austria is a tricky track to set up your brakes for. There are some very heavy braking zones, especially into turn 3. And then there is a range of short and sharp braking zones. These all require a different brake bias setup.
You will want a frontward brake bias for the bigger braking zones, and a more rearward brake bias for the faster corners. You can adjust this manually throughout a lap, and I would recommend you do so.
If you only want to make minimal brake bias changes per lap, I would recommend moving your brake bias forward as you approach turn 3, and then move it rearward as you approach turn 4.
