Italy F1 22 Setups
In F1 22 Italy is one of the easier tracks to drive and create a car setup for. While it may be one of the easier tracks to drive around due to its limited number of corners and long straights it is tricky to truly master and become fast around.
You will need a lot of bravery as well as good car placement to optimise your speed around Monza. You’ll also need a good low downforce car setup to maximise your car’s potential.
While you could think the best aero setup around Monza is to lower your front and rear wing both to 1, that isn’t ideal. You should go very close to the minimum aero setup, but leave a little downforce tuned in.
This combination will ensure you are quick along the incredibly long Italian straights but will also ensure you have just enough downforce to maximise your corner speed.
Fast corners such as Parabolica and Ascari require a bit of rear downforce and good stability. If you have both of these things, you will be able to throw your car into these corners at speed and accelerate through them while remaining stable.
Monza is a track in F1 22 that requires one of the lowest on-throttle diff setups. You will be accelerating from low speed at a few points around Monza. There are two very slow chicanes as well as a few corners that require a good exit due to the long straights that follow.
To ensure you don’t get excess wheel spin out of these corners, you can lower your on-throttle diff as low as you require. The good news is that the long straights around Monza give you a good chance to adjust your on-throttle diff in between corners.
Adjusting your on-throttle diff in between corners is a good idea as the higher speed corners will require high on-throttle diff for maximum minimum corner speed.
This ultimately means that down the pit straight you’ll want to lower your on-throttle diff, and then as you exit the second chicane you should increase it back up for the rest of the lap.
Monza is pretty flat and features a few small kerbs which you’ll be driving over. But a lot of lap time can be gained or lost through the fast corners. Around the fast corners such as Ascari will benefit from a stiffer suspension setup.
Stiffening your suspension too much can result in your car being overly sensitive to some kerbs, mainly those found at Ascari. At other points around Monza, you won’t be driving over the kerbs enough to cause your car to become unsettled.
There is a perfect balance that is between the middle and maximum range for suspension stiffness.
You will want to run your ride height almost as low as you can go around Monza in F1 22. The ground effect 2022 Formula 1 cars benefit from a low car setup, and Monza is perfect for it. There aren’t many bumps and you will want to reduce drag as much as possible. So go as low as you can before you start feeling your car scraping the track surface.
Brake and tyre setup
Due to the extremely heavy braking zones around Monza, you will want to go for a high brake pressure setup. You can max this out at 100% to give yourself ultimate braking potential.
Combine this with a brake balance of around 56%. Too far frontward and you risk locking your front wheels into the first chicane. Too far rearward and you’ll start to increase your overall stopping distance.
Monza can be hard on tyres. The track temperature is generally hot which doesn’t help. Your rear tyres will wear from excess wheel spin out of the first chicane. And your front tyres will suffer through the prolonged faster corners such as Parabolica.
Lowering your tyre pressures can help to reduce the overall heat somewhat, which will in turn lower your tyre wear around Monza in F1 22.
