Miami F1 22 Setup
We have seen the new Miami Grand Prix in action for the first time, and it produced a reasonably exciting race, thanks in part to a late safety car. In F1 22 Miami can be raced around for the first time ever in a game. This new circuit makes creating the perfect Miami car setup a little bit trickier than other tracks.
We don’t have any previous experience to go on, so are making a car setup completely fresh. However, straight away we know that Miami requires a relatively low downforce setup. It features some extremely long straights and full-throttle curves, as well as a few fast finding sections, very similar to those found around Saudi Arabia.
For your Miami aero setup, I would recommend lowering both front and rear aero as this will help maximise your straight-line speed. We saw the importance of straight-line speed during the F1 22 Miami GP where Max Verstappen could follow Leclerc closely due to his superior top speed. This resulted in Max being able to relatively easily overtake Charles to take the win.
I would recommend setting your rear aero slightly higher than your front. There aren’t too many slow traditional corners where front downforce is ever so important. Instead, the faster corners will rely more on your rear downforce than your front.
Having higher rear aero will keep your car stable through the fast curves, and it also won’t negatively affect your top speed as much as increasing your front aero would.
For your transmission setup, you can increase your on-throttle differential setup. This will help maintain a good minimum corner speed through the fast curves. You can manually lower your on-throttle diff during a race as you approach the very slow and technical corner sequence of 11 through to 16.
Getting a good exit out of turn 16 is possibly the most important part of your lap. As this will dictate how fast you will be down the long back straight. You can then increase your off-throttle diff as you drive down the long straight in preparation for the fast lap ahead.
For your suspension setup, you can set up relatively stiff compared to some other tracks. There aren’t too many bumps or high kerbs around Miami. This will allow you to have a fairly aggressive suspension setup that is capable of handling the fast corners.
Keep your anti-roll bar set higher than your suspension to ensure your car doesn’t roll too much through the fast corners.
Brake balance is an important part of your F1 22 Miami setup. There is a mixture of braking zones, from heavy straight-line braking like turn 17, and faster braking zones where you’ll want a more balanced, rearward brake bias. Keep your brake bias setup fairly neutral to be able to handle all of these different challenges.
Miami isn’t too hard on tyre wear, but it punishes your front tyres more than your rears. This is due to the fast sweeping corners where a lot of the load is on your outside front tyres. There aren’t many heavy traction zones other than turn 16, so rear tyre wear shouldn’t be an issue.
You will want fairly high tyre pressures to keep your car responsive, but you can lower the front pressures a little if you feel tyre wear is becoming an issue during a race.
