F1 23 Miami Setup Guide
The Miami track was new to last year’s Formula 1 game, and it turned out to be a pretty interesting race and track layout. It features some fast sectors including the very long back straight which serves as the primary overtaking spot.
There is also a long flat-out curve from turn 8 down to a heavy braking zones into turn 11 which is also great for overtaking. This leads directly into the slowest part of the track where cars drop right down into first gear for the incredibly slow turns 14 and 15.
Top speed is the real name of the game around Miami. Despite the track layout having some slower more technical sectors, the two incredibly long DRS-assisted straights are what you should prioritise.
If you’re slow due to excess downforce and drag, you’ll have a poor time throughout a race. We saw just how powerful these straights were in the Grand Prix that we’ve seen at Miami so far.
Despite the incredibly slow corners towards the end of the lap, the primary characteristic of the turns around Miami is to be medium speed and sweeping. This style of corner doesn’t require a low on-throttle differential setup.
Instead, you can increase your on-throttle differential which will provide a boost out of the medium-speed corners. If you do suffer from wheel spin through the slower corners, you can manually lower your on-throttle differential via your MFD.
I’d recommend doing this down the long straights towards turn 11 and then adjust it back to its higher setting while crossing the start-finish line. This will give you an optimal setup at every part of the lap.
Higher camber angle can help increase your minimum corner speed around Miami. Much like tracks such as COTA or Silverstone which feature sweeping corners, higher camber will provide more grip as you throw the car left and right and really lean on the tyres.
In comparison, lowering your toe angle can help to minimise drag along the straight parts of the Miami track. This will increase your top speed down the two very important straights.
A stiff suspension setup is the name of the game around Miami. Other than a few large kerbs through the slower corners, the rest of the track is relatively flat.
A stiffer suspension will be beneficial as it will help you carry more speed through faster corners by eliminating body roll. It can also increase your overall responsiveness.
Much like the variety in corner style, you’ll also find a few unique braking zones around Miami. Playing with your brake bias mid-race via your MFD can help to optimise your brake balance at each corner and is recommended.
Tyre wear is relatively average around Miami with the track itself being front-limited. This will put more stress on your front tyres as you lean on them through the faster corners.
Lowering your front tyre pressures can help to reduce tyre temperature build-up and tyre wear, as can reducing your camber angles. However, both of these setup changes will reduce some responsiveness.
Miami F1 23 setup overview
Miami is an enjoyable track and a welcome addition to F1 23 after its debut last year. It features a good variety of corner styles that are designed to challenge a car in each area. The ideal car setup for Miami in F1 23 will be low downforce, with good responsiveness.
