F1 23 Baku Setup Guide

Baku has moved forward in the F1 23 calendar, becoming the fourth race of the season after Australia. This breaks up the double header of street circuits that was Monaco and Baku, instead, creating a back-to-back of Azerbaijan and Miami.

Baku is a track that often sees great racing, and that is because of the incredibly long pit straight and the plethora of overtaking spots around the circuit. The track layout is primarily made up of 90-degree corners, with plenty of these being potential overtaking spots.

The second half of the track is much faster with some more high-speed sweeping corners. This combination results in a track that is tricky to create a car setup for.

Aerodynamics

Your aerodynamic setup should be relatively high due to the sequence of slower 90-degree corners. However, the long pit straight forces us into a low downforce car setup approach.

If you don’t run a low downforce setup around Baku in F1 23, you’ll lose a lot of time down the long pit straight. This will lead to you falling back through the grid and struggling to make overtakes.

With every car on the grid being forced into a low downforce setup for Baku, you shouldn’t be at any disadvantage. Focus on ensuring you have enough downforce for the slower sectors without losing too much top speed.

Transmission

With plenty of 90-degree corners, you’ll be accelerating from slower speed a lot around Baku in F1 23. This means you will almost always require a low on-throttle differential setup.

Lowering your on-throttle diff setup will help you maintain traction while accelerating at slow speed. This will maximise your speed down the straight that follows and also help your tyre wear by reducing wheel spin.

The last few corners allow you to increase your on-throttle differential, which you can do on the approach via your MFD while driving.

Suspension Geometry

You should focus your suspension geometry on helping your traction, which can be done by reducing toe and camber at the rear of the car. Lower amounts of toe will also help reduce drag which can make you faster in a straight line.

Suspension

With Baku being one of the street circuits in F1 23, you should expect a fair few bumps. This is taken to the extreme through the incredibly slow castle sector of track.

Due to the nature of this street circuit, you should run a softer suspension to help keep your car stable. The last thing you want with walls close by is for your car to become unsettled over a bump.

Brakes

There are a lot of corners meaning a lot of braking zones around Baku. You should focus on a more front-focused brake bias due to the straight and heavy nature of the majority of braking zones.

However, remember that F1 23 allows you to set your brake bias much closer to 50% than is normal.

Tyres

The high-speed nature of Baku and the heavy traction zones result in higher-than-average tyre wear. Baku is extremely rear-limited causing excess heat to be generated, especially at the rear of the car.

Lowering your tyre pressures can help reduce your tyre temperature and keep tyre wear down, and this approach can also increase rear traction.

Baku F1 23 setup overview

The Azerbaijan track is easily one of the toughest to master in F1 23. The layout features some very hard sectors, including the technical castle sector. This results in a tough challenge, but with a stable and optimised car setup, this challenging track can be made a little easier.
