Red Bull Ring

The Austrian Grand Prix is an extremely fast event due to the short track layout and long straights in the first and second sectors. The corners are a combination of high speed sweeping turns and slower corners with heavy braking zones.

F1 23 Austria Setup Guide

The Red Bull Ring in Austria is one of the shortest, yet most enjoyable tracks in F1 23. It features a short track layout with just 10 corners, and a few long straights.

It is a track that rewards a well-balanced car setup. You’ll need good straight-line speed to be able to make overtakes along the three main straights, all of which feature DRS in F1 23.

However, you’ll also need a good aerodynamic balance as there are a mixture of incredibly slow corners and faster sweeping turns.

Aerodynamics

One of the main priorities when creating an F1 23 Austria car setup is to ensure you have good straight line speed. With such as short track layout, and three long straights, you can gain or lose a lot of time with your aerodynamic setup.

Rear stability is also important as there are some fast corners where the rear of your car can become overloaded if not setup correctly.

Transmission

Your transmission and on-throttle differential setup in particular is important, mainly due to a single corner. Turn 3 is one of the slowest corners on the F1 23 calendar, with you dropping down to first gear in some situations.

Turn 3 is also followed by a long straight meaning you’ll need good traction while accelerating out of the corner. Ensuring your on-throttle diff is set up to allow for good traction under acceleration is important.

Suspension Geometry

Austria rewards an aggressive camber and toe setup. The faster corners allow you to carry very high minimum corner speeds. If you run extreme camber angles you will be able to maximise your speed through these corners.

However, too much toe can increase drag which will lower your straight-line speed potential. Too much rear camber can also negatively affect your traction.

Suspension

The Red Bull Ring circuit is built in the Austrian hills, resulting in a track with a lot of altitude change. The run towards turn 3 is fairly steep, with the rest of the track culminating in a downhill run to the first corner.

These altitude changes make for a track with a few undulations and bumps, along with some fairly aggressive kerbs. This all leads to us favouring a softer suspension setup. This approach will help with traction, tyre wear and keeping your car stable over all of the bumps and kerbs.

Brakes

Austria is a tricky track to set up your brakes for. There are heavy braking zones requiring high pressure and a front-focused brake bias. However, the second half of the circuit features a lot of short and sharp braking zones.

It is recommended to adjust your brake bias each lap if possible. This can be done via the MFD or a button on your controller or racing wheel.

Tyres

Tyres and tyre wear in particular can become an issue around the Austrian track in F1 23. The high-speed corners in particular put a lot of excess heat into your tyres which will increase the overall wear.

Lowering your tyre pressures or running a less extreme toe and camber setup can help to limit tyre temperature build-up throughout a race in F1 23.

Austria F1 23 setup overview

Overall, the Austrian circuit is one of the more enjoyable tracks in F1 23. The fast corners, short layout and plenty of overtaking spots all result in a race that can be fierce and intense.
