Below are all of our F1 22 Monaco Setups for both dry and wet conditions. These include race and time trial setups.
Monaco F1 22 Setup
The Circuit de Monaco is an incredibly tricky track to race around, possibly the hardest track in F1 22. However, this can be made a little easier with a good Monaco car setup. In F1 22 Monaco is all about maximising your downforce and stability to give you the easiest car to drive.
You will want to create the highest downforce car setup out of all of the tracks in F1 22. You will also want to prioritise a soft suspension to ensure your car can handle all of the bumps and elevation changes.
Our goal with our Monaco setup is to create the fastest one-lap setup possible to prioritise qualifying. If you do manage to get pole position in qualifying, you can have a reasonably comfortable race by controlling the speed of the pack due to the difficulty of making an overtake here.
Your aerodynamic setup for Monaco is one of the easiest of the whole season. Simply set your front and rear aero as close to maximum as you fancy going. You can max them both out to give yourself the best downforce around a lap.
However, if you feel that you are going to be running in the middle of the pack during the race, you may want to shave some aero off. This can open the possibility of making an overtake during the race.
There are a couple of overtaking spots. Into turn 1 and out of the tunnel into turn 10 is the most likely. But to pull off an overtake into either of these corners, you’ll need great traction out of the corner before and good straight-line speed.
To give yourself the best chance of accelerating out of the slow corners around Monaco with the least wheel spin possible, you should set your on-throttle differential pretty low. You can set this as low as 50 for the easiest time.
Essentially low levels of on-throttle differential will limit how much your rear wheels spin up as you accelerate hard out of corners.
You can also run low levels of off-throttle diff to aid corner turn-in. Lower amount of off-throttle diff will help the nose of your car rotate at slower speeds. This can allow you to run slightly less front wing aero, which in turn can free up some straight-line speed if needed.
Monaco suspension setup
Your suspension should really be set up pretty low. There are a lot of bumps and height changes around Monaco. And the kerbs that you do touch can unsettle your car a lot. Creating a soft suspension setup will help your car ride these bumps with as little disruption to your car’s balance as possible.
I would recommend doing the same with your anti-roll bars and opt for a soft setup. As with many car setups in F1 22, you can run your anti-roll bar setup stiffer than your suspension for a little extra lateral rigidity.
Your ride height setup is a little harder around Monaco. Ideally, you would go as low as possible on your ride height. However, Monaco features a few large bumps that will cause your car to scrape if it is too low. Keep your ride height a little higher than at some other tracks. This will help stop your car from hitting the track surface.
As Monaco isn’t too hard on your tyre wear, you can set up your suspension geometry pretty aggressive. You won’t be leaning on your car’s tyres for too long through the corners as none are overly fast and long. But when you do, higher levels of camber can help you maintain a good minimum corner speed.
Braking and tyre setup
Your brake setup around Monaco is more important than anywhere in F1 22. You will spend a lot of the lap on the brakes due to its tight and twisty nature. So ensuring your brakes are set up correctly is crucial.
You will want slightly higher brake pressure than at some tracks to ensure you’re stopping quickly. You won’t be worrying too much about locking wheels as you won’t be braking from high speed at any point.
Finally lowering your tyre pressures will help with traction out of the slower corners.
