F1 23 Imola Setup Guide

The Emilia Romagna GP (not to be confused with the Italian Grand Prix at Monza) is a race that has seen a host of drama and action in the previous few years. In F1 23, Imola is a track that is incredibly fun to drive around due to its unique corner combinations.

There are a variety of tricky corner sequences that involve slow to medium-speed chicanes and switchbacks. Turns 11, 12 and 13 are possibly the most technically demanding corners as you’ll be braking while travelling downhill and turning into turn 13.

These corners require an incredibly stable car setup in F1 23, which has a good combination of front-end responsiveness and rear stability.

Aerodynamics

While many of the corners around Imola do benefit from a higher downforce setup, you can’t opt to set your aerodynamic setup too high due to the longer straights. If you go too high, you’ll lose lap time along these straights and face being overtaken during a race.

Instead, create an aerodynamic setup that is balanced front and rear, if not a little more rear-focused. The key to a good setup around Imola is rear stability and a strong rear aero setup can help with this.

Transmission

Due to the flowing layout of many of Imola’s medium-speed corners, you can set your on-throttle differential a little higher than at other tracks. There aren’t too many heavy traction zones so you won’t need to worry as much about excess wheelspin around Imola as you do at other tracks.

Suspension Geometry

You’ll find that through the medium-speed corners such as turns 2, 3 and 4 along with turns 9 and 10, a more extreme camber setup will be beneficial. This approach will let you lean on your tyres more mid-corner providing more grip, and allowing for higher cornering speeds.

You don’t need to worry about tyre wear around Imola as you do at some tracks in F1 23, and this allows us to set up our suspension geometry to be a little more extreme or aggressive.

Suspension

Imola is an old school track, and with that comes a lot of bumps and high kerbs. This is certainly true around this circuit, with many of the kerbs in particular being quite large.

To keep your car stable while throwing it over these kerbs, you should look to set up your suspension on the softer side. This will let your car ride the bumps well without any harsh consequences.

Brakes

Braking around Imola is a combination of short braking zones combined with a couple of heavier braking zones. For this reason, opt for a balanced brake setup, and don’t be afraid to adjust your brake bias on the approach to certain corners.

Tyres

Tyre wear isn’t too high around Imola in F1 23, but is also a part of your car setup that you can’t forget about. You will need to ensure that your car setup doesn’t produce too much excess tyre wear. The main culprits to this are your suspension stiffness and suspension geometry.

Imola F1 23 setup overview

When you have a well-balanced car, Imola is without a doubt one of the most enjoyable tracks in F1 23. It is equal parts technical and enjoyable making it a track that is fun to push your car to the limit around.
