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.

Aerodynamics

We’ve trimmed a good degree of wing angle for this setup.

The 16-24 wings will provide plenty of top-speed for the long straights, but enough performance to keep you glued to the road in the corners.

Transmission

This setting is all about getting the power through the rear wheels and into the asphalt.

We’ve gone for 90% on-throttle differential to give you stability on corner exit and better traction.

The 54% off-throttle differential provides extra rotation on turn-in as you bleed off the brakes.

Suspension geometry

The meta for suspension geometry is the same 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.

Suspension

This part of the setup can be highly personal based on your driving style.

The 8-1 suspension and 6-1 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 3-4 ride height keeps you fast on the straights but the rake gives you some extra performance through the long corners.

Brakes

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.

Tyres

The new 18” Pirelli tyres are a challenge this year.
