F1 23 Saudi Arabia Setup Guide
Jeddah is a track that is often the host to action-packed races, with the 2021 Hamilton and Verstappen clash being one of the most interesting races in a long time. The track layout lends itself to some dramatic on-track battles due to the incredibly long straights that are followed by slower corners.
And the combination of these long straights along with slow, medium and high-speed corners makes it very tricky to create a car setup for Saudi Arabia in F1 23.
Due to the long straights and fast corners, you will be best off with a slightly low aerodynamic setup. This will maximise your straight-line speed and increase the ease of making overtakes during a race.
You will still need to work in some front and rear aerodynamics due to the combination of slow to fast corners. Each corner provides a different challenge, however, Jeddah is a track that is similar to the Canadian Grand Prix, and requires a slightly low downforce setup much like that track.
With the tendency for medium and high-speed corners that don’t feature overly high corner angles, you won’t need to set up your transmission too low. There are only a few heavy traction zones, and these aren’t overly prone to producing wheel spin.
Instead, set your on-throttle differential towards the higher side to maximise your speed through the faster corners such as turns 4-6 and 7-10.
Higher camber angles will benefit your mid-corner speed, especially through longer sweeping corners such as turns 11 to 15, and out of the last corner. Tyre wear is pretty low, allowing us to set up the car to focus more on performance than tyre preservation.
Despite the track being relatively flat and the corners being fast, a soft suspension setup is preferable around Jeddah. This is due to it being a street track that has you attacking the kerbs at every corner.
The kerbs are raised up and can unsettle your car if it is set up too stiff. Opt for slightly stiffer anti-roll bars to counteract some body roll as you throw your car quickly from left to right.
Most braking zones around Jeddah are short and sharp, meaning you won’t need to apply the brakes for long periods. To give the best performance, set your brake bias fairly neutral without too much front bias. This will reduce the likelihood of locking a front wheel and missing an apex.
Your tyre pressures around Jeddah can be set higher than at other tracks. This is because the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix isn’t too hard on tyre wear. You won’t encounter as much tyre wear here as you do at other tracks allowing you to focus more on performance than tyre preservation.
Jeddah F1 23 setup overview
Overall, Jeddah is a very fast and exciting track to race around on F1 23. It poses a challenge for car setup creators by combining a predominantly fast track layout with a mixture of slow, medium and fast corners.
Despite being a street track, this circuit isn’t too bumpy and there is plenty of run-off area at most corners, making it feel very similar to Canada in many ways.
