The season finale at Yas Marina is always a grand spectacle, but you’ll need this F1 22 Abu Dhabi setup if you want to clinch a championship.
The amazing venue has hosted some truly dramatic moments in Formula 1 history. Can you add to its legacy?
This setup has been updated for patch 1.06 handling change
F1 22 Abu Dhabi setup
The track has undergone a major remodelling for F1 22. The first sector chicane has been taken out, opening up the entrance to the first DRS zone. The triple chicane by the marina has also gone, replaced with a never-ending hairpin left-hander.
As a result, the setup from F1 2021 has changed a lot, with more emphasis on top speed than cornering.
We’ve trimmed a good degree of wing angle for this setup.
The 26-20 wings will provide plenty of top-speed for the long straights, but enough performance to keep you glued to the road in the corners.
This setting is all about getting the power through the rear wheels and into the asphalt.
We’ve gone for 60% on-throttle differential to give you stability on corner exit and better traction.
The 50% off-throttle differential provides extra rotation on turn-in as you bleed off the brakes.
The meta for suspension geometry is the same as in previous years.
That means our setup uses -2.50 for the front camber and -1.00 on the rear. For toe it's 0.05 on the front and 0.20 on the rear.
This part of the setup can be highly personal based on your driving style.
The 3-2 suspension and 2-5 anti-roll bars provide a solid foundation for racing, with enough turn-in performance for the middle sector but the rear stability to flick through the Senna esses.
The 4-4 ride height keeps you fast on the straights but the rake gives you some extra performance through the long corners.
Stopping power is a must, but lockups can be devastating for your tyre strategy.
We’ve gone with 100% brake pressure and 50% brake bias to provide maximum stopping power for the race.
If you do find you are locking up in practice then drop the brake pressure by a few clicks, don’t move the bias.
The new 18” Pirelli tyres are a challenge this year.
We have had success with 22.5 psi on the front tyres and 21.0 psi on the rears.
