F1 22 Baku Setups
In F1 22 Baku is a track which is notoriously difficult to both drive and create a car setup for. It features one of the tightest and most technical sectors of any track on the Formula 1 calendar. While you’d think this would be ideal for a high downforce car setup, Baku also features the longest straight on the calendar.
The 2.2km long pit straight means that you have to lean towards a low downforce car setup to ensure you aren’t too slow on this straight. However, the rest of the lap gets very technical and requires a well-balanced car setup to optimise.
The long pit straight beats every other straight on the F1 calendar for length. It’s even longer than the huge straights at Monza and Jeddah! This means that you have to factor it into your aerodynamic setup.
Opt for a low downforce setup to prioritise this long straight. Set your front wing aero relatively low as this is the part of your aerodynamics that affect drag the most. Then set your rear downforce between low and medium.
This is a very similar approach to our F1 22 Italy setup. Low downforce to prioritise the straight with an emphasis on an average rear wing to give the best rear stability through the windy sections.
Differential setup is key
A lot of the corners around Baku in F1 22 are slow to medium speed 90 degree turns. These corners require you to accelerate away from them at relatively low speeds. This will take its toll on your rear tyre wear throughout a full race, meaning Baku is a rear limited track.
You can try to manage your throttle input throughout a race, but you can help manage your rear tyres with your differential setup. By lowering your on-throttle differential setup you will limit how fast your rear wheels break traction. A low on-throttle diff setup will help you accelerate out of corners better without worrying as much about oversteering.
You can adjust your on-throttle diff during a race using your MFD. This will be beneficial as the faster corners in the third sector of the lap will benefit from a higher on-throttle diff setup.
If you can, I would recommend increasing your on-throttle diff via the MFD as you exit the castle section around Baku. Then as you are racing down the long straight you can decrease your on-throttle diff ready for the first half of the lap.
In F1 22 Azerbaijan is a very bumpy circuit. After all, it is a street circuit, so the track surface can’t be as smooth as dedicated full-time tracks. There is also a lot of elevation change, especially as you drive through the technical castle section.
Both of these characteristics lead to a softer car setup being preferred for Baku.
You should set up your suspension to be relatively soft allowing your car to better handle the bumps around Baku. But then keep your anti-roll bars a little stiffer. There are a few corners, especially in the last sector where you will be throwing your car into corners at speed. This requires a relatively stiff anti-roll bar setup.
