Saudi Arabia F1 22 Setups
Jeddah in Saudi Arabia has been host to a few very entertaining races, most recently the crazy race between Verstappen and Hamilton that resulted in them coming together. In F1 22 Saudi Arabia is an extremely fun track to drive.
It is characterised by extremely fast corners where the walls are extremely close. It is certainly a circuit where you need to give it your all to achieve a solid lap time.
There are a few incredibly long full speed curves and straights that really test your top speed. But these are broken up with some fast corners and a few slower more technical sectors.
You would think we would want to run a very low downforce aero setup around Saudi Arabia because of the long straights. However, we need to take into account the slow, medium speed and high corners that reward a higher downforce setup.
I would recommend keeping your aero setup pretty balanced, with more rear aero to ensure your car stays planted to the ground through the fast sections.
Because of the predominantly long corners that are taken at medium to high speed, your on-throttle differential can be set up to be on the higher side. This will ensure your rear tyres are spinning at closer speeds providing more drive through these turns.
Your front camber should be set up high to allow your car to maintain a large contact patch with the road when it is leaning on its tyres through the fast turns.
Your rear camber and toe values don’t need to be as high, as these will increase drag through the fast sections.
Your suspension setup should be pretty soft. The fast sweeping corners will have you riding over the kerbs. And as we saw in the most recent Formula 1 race around Jeddah, the kerbs can cause a lot of instability and even result in spins and crashes.
To try and avoid this as much as possible we’ll run a soft setup. This should lessen the impact the high kerbs have on our car’s balance and stability allowing you to fully attack them.
Brake and tyre setup
Jeddah is pretty unique when it comes to your brake setup. The fast sweeping corners will have you hitting the brakes in short, sharp bursts often while turning the car. To give the best balance under braking in these scenarios, you should opt for a brake bias that is close to 50-50. Around 52-54% front brake bias is about right.
Jeddah isn’t harsh on tyres, so you can run high pressures without worrying too much about tyre wear. Crank up both front and rear tyre pressures to maximise the responsiveness that you get from your tyres.
