F1 22 Spain Setups
Below are all of our F1 22 Spain Setups for both dry and wet conditions. These include race and time trial setups.
Spain F1 22 Setup
There’s a reason why Formula 1 test at Catalunya in Spain. The Spanish circuit provides a good selection of different corners and straights to give the cars a chance to test multiple areas of their design and setup.
While this makes the circuit nice and varied to race around, it does provide a slight setup problem for the engineers. With a mixture of fast sweeping corners, long straights and slower technical sectors, Spain in F1 22 is a pain to create a car setup for.
Because of the varied nature of Spain in F1 22, your car setup should be pretty well balanced. You’ll need aero that is tuned to create the best balance between straight-line speed and enough downforce.
In F1 22 Spain features a large number of medium speed prolonged corners that rely heavily on the amount of rear downforce you can generate.
For this reason, I would recommend increasing your rear wing aero compared to your front wing. Set up your front wing to be balanced, with your rear wing higher.
This should provide enough rear downforce to be able to accelerate through and out of the faster corners without a worry of stability loss.
Also, because a lot of corners have long corner exits, they don’t require as much throttle management as slower corners do. This allows us to run our on-throttle differential setup just above balanced. This will help maintain mid-corner speed around the Circuit de Catalunya.
Setting up our off-throttle differential to be pretty low will help rotate your car into the slower corners without as much reliance on your font wing aero.
To ensure your car is maximising its grip through the mid-corner speeds you can set up your front camber pretty aggressively. By getting close to the maximum with your front camber you will ensure you can take the faster corners at high speed.
Your toe will want to be pretty low. Spain is a pretty fast circuit and excess toe will increase drag and reduce your top speed. Two things you don’t want around Spain in F1 22.
Much like other parts of our F1 22 Spanish setup, I would opt for a balanced suspension setup. You don’t need an overly soft suspension as there aren’t too many bumps or high kerbs, other than those in the final chicane.
But going too stiff can cause your car to be harder on its tyres throughout a race distance. A balanced suspension softness works best for Spain.
Your ride height can be pretty low. Ideally the lower your ride height, the more downforce it can generate and the less drag you’ll encounter. This will give you a better top speed potential along the straights allowing for better chances of overtaking.
Brake and tyre setup
Your brake setup should be pretty balanced around Spain, much like the rest of our setup. Close to 100% brake pressure combined with around 56% front brake bias is ideal.
One area that can be hard to tune is your tyres. You will face heavy degradation on your front tyres due to the long fast corners. These corners make your car lean heavily onto your outside front tyre making it wear much faster.
You can lower your front tyre pressures to counteract some of the tyre wear.
