Getting a perfect wet setup for the Australia round of the F1 22 season isn't easy.

Melbourne can experience four seasons in a day, so rain isn't uncommon here. This is the F1 22 wet weather setup guide you need to be fast down under!

Albert Park has gotten a big makeover since F1 2021. The chicane at Turns 9 and 10 has been replaced with sweeping, flat-out corners. This has raised the average speed of the track up a lot compared with the old layout.

That will affect your setup, as we explain in the above YouTube video.

Aerodynamics

Wings are around middle of the road for Australia in the wet. You need low wing angles to be quick down the multiple long straights.

However, you also need them to be high enough to be competitive through both the low and medium-speed corners.

We think that 20 front wing angle and 28 rear wing angle gives you a great balance between straight-line speed and cornering speed.

Transmission

A more locked setup for the transmission allows for a smoother transmission of power when both on and off-throttle. Overall grip will go down in this case, but you need a predictable and dependable car to inspire confidence in the rain.

So, we've gone for 95% on-throttle diff with 60% off-throttle, as this gives good stability when you need to get off the loud peddle.

Suspension Geometry

The maximum grip settings we usually use for suspension geometry doesn't change here. In the wet, having as much mechanical grip as possible is vital, and that's replicated here.

Furthermore, you don't have to worry about tyre life, as pulling off a one-stopper is easy on the durable wets.

We've gone for -2.50 front camber, with -1.00 on the rear. For the toe, we've opted for 0.05 on the front and 0.20 on the rear.

Suspension

The suspension should always been on the soft side in the wet, as you're more liable to make a mistake and need to use the kerbs. The kerbs aren't harsh in Albert Park, but you will need to use them at high-speed.

5-5 on the front and rear gives good stability and also keeps the performance of the car high too.

6-6 anti-roll bar settings give a good balance between stability and responsiveness, which will really come in handy at Turns 11 and 12.

Lastly, the ride height is ideal at about 4-4. You do need to be up slightly high because of the kerbs here, but the flat nature of the circuit helps keep the car above the ground.

Brakes

Brake pressure can be high in Australia, but not as high as some circuits in F1 22. We've gone with 95% pressure, as lock-ups are pretty common here, especially in the wet.

53% brake bias is also what we've found to be the ideal balance between the front and rear brakes.

Tyres

The wet tyres are very durable, but don't give a lot of grip. You can help this by turning the tyre pressures up though.

We've opted for higher-than-average tyre pressures of 23.7 psi on the front and 22.7 psi on the rear.
