F1 23 Suzuka Setup Guide

Suzuka in unique in terms of track layout as it is the only track in F1 23 that features a figure-of-8 layout, with the track crossing over around turns 9 and 15. Other than this unique characteristic, it is also one of the most challenging circuits to master.

This is due to the extremely flowing nature of its corners. It is a circuit that will test your ability to position your car correctly. If you travel off the racing line or out of position around one corner, it can affect your speed for the next few turns.


Suzuka is really a track that is split into two halves. The first half features medium-speed corners that are flowing and technical. The second half of the track features longer straights and more of an emphasis on high-speed performance.

For this reason, your Suzuka car setup in F1 23 should try to balance between both of these characteristics. You’ll want a higher aerodynamic setup for the first half of the lap, and less drag and downforce for the second half.

Due to the flowing nature of each corner, you should prioritise your front aerodynamic setup, with a higher front wing angle than at the rear. This will ensure that you don’t suffer from understeer as this is the single biggest element that can harm your lap time.


There aren’t many high traction zones around Suzuka. The biggest is out of the final chicane or the slow hairpin in the middle of the lap. However, all other corners are faster and very flowing which limits your need for a low on-throttle differential setup. Instead, increase this up more towards an aggressive setup.

Suspension Geometry

Despite Suzuka being relatively hard on tyre wear, you will still want to run an aggressive suspension geometry setup. This is because you will benefit greatly from a car with higher toe and camber. You will be able to lean on your tyres more which will lead to increased corner speeds, and higher toe angles will increase your responsiveness.


Through the first sequence of flowing corners, a stiffer suspension setup will be beneficial. This is because it can eliminate body roll which will increase rigidity and responsiveness. However, there are a fair few bumps and high kerbs throughout the lap, so you shouldn’t set up your car too stiff.


Keep your brake setup very balanced with a more neutral brake bias setup. A few corners will require you to be braking while applying some steering input, so avoid a very front-focused brake bias as this will introduce understeer.


Suzuka can really punish your front tyres. This is because both front tyres will be under a lot of continuous load as you lean on them continuously through the sweeping corners. Try to minimise tyre wear by not setting your camber too aggressively, and lowering tyre pressures.

Japan F1 23 setup overview

Suzuka is a track in F1 23 which rewards a responsive car setup that is incredibly stable. Understeer can be your biggest enemy around Suzuka and this will increase as your front tyres start to wear.
