United States F1 22 setups
The Circuit of the Americas is a track that has been designed specifically to incorporate the best parts of other Formula 1 tracks. That makes it one of the most enjoyable circuits to race around in F1 22 due to its variety.
There are extremely fast corners through the first sector which was designed to emulate the classic Maggotts, Becketts, Chapel complex from Silverstone.
Then there are much tighter and slower corners throughout the second half of the lap. Turns 15 and 16 in particular are especially tricky as they are designed to be similar to turns 9 and 10 at Bahrain.
For your aerodynamic setup around the Circuit of the Americas in F1 22, you’ll want pretty high downforce. This is despite the incredibly long straight between turns 11 and 12.
Higher front levels of aero will allow your car to stay glued to the road through the aero dependent corners throughout the lap.
You can run your rear aero setup ever so slightly lower than your front to try to recoup some straight-line speed.
Your on-throttle differential should be pretty balanced. You will require higher on-throttle diff for the faster corners, and lower amounts for the slower turns. So balanced is the best trade-off. You can always manage this manually during a race if you feel your tyres are slipping too much under acceleration.
A low off-throttle diff setup will help your nose turn into slower corners slightly better.
Much like our Spanish F1 22 setup, I would set up the front camber to be high, and the rear camber and toe to be low.
This will give you a good amount of camber to help your car grip the track surface through the long fast corners.
While the low amount of toe will help prevent drag down the long straight. This will help give you a little more top speed.
There are a fair few kerbs around this American circuit that you will want to be positioning your car over. To avoid your car becoming unsettled, you can lower your front suspension stiffness.
A soft front and rear suspension will stop your car from behaving negatively as you ride over the kerbs.
You can keep your anti-roll bars slightly stiffer than your suspension. Stiffer anti-roll bars, especially at the front of your car can increase your responsiveness. This is beneficial as the Circuit of the Americas features a fair few corner sequences with fast direction changes.
To account for the elevation change and kerbs, you should run your ride height low to balanced. Keep the rear of the car higher from the ground compared to the front to increase your car’s responsiveness.
Brake and tyre setup
Your brake setup should be pretty standard with high pressures and a brake bias that is balanced at around 56%.
Your tyres won’t take too much punishment around COTA, allowing you to raise your pressures at both the front and rear. Higher pressures will increase your tyre temperatures, but it’ll also give you more responsiveness which is always a good thing around the Circuit of the Americas.
