We all love Baku, but in the new Codemasters game you need a very good F1 22 Azerbaijan setup to make the most of your race there.
It's a tricky circuit with close walls and huge long straights that require low downforce. But those trimmed wings leave you at risk from the approaching armco barriers!
This setup has been updated for patch 1.06 handling change
F1 22 Azerbaijan Setup
Baku is a fan favourite thanks to its usually chaotic races, but it's also a track with tricky corners, unique tests, and that HUGE straight to create some epic overtaking chances.
All that means it needs a strong setup if you are going to get the most of your weekend on the Caspian Sea.
Low wings are a must, otherwise you will lose way too much time down the big long straights.
We've gone with 5-2 wings here. This will make you rapid down the straights while giving you just enough to get through the corners.
This part of the setup dictates how the power is pushed through the rear wheels.
We've gone with 60% on-throttle differential. This keeps the rear stable on corner-exit and provides extra traction.
The 54% off-throttle differential helps with rotation on the brakes, useful for those 90-degree corners in the early part of the lap.
The suspension geometry meta hasn't really changed in F1 22.
That means we've gone for -2.50 front camber, -1.00 rear camber, 0.05 front toe, and 0.20 rear toe.
This is where we are getting a bit of that high-speed rear stability back from the low-wing setup.
We've gone with 8-1 for the suspension and 8-1 for the anti-roll bar
The 8-5 ride height adds the ability to ride the kerbs through those tricky corners.
There are quite a few big stops in Baku, so we need brakes we can trust.
We've gone with 100% brake pressure and 50% brake bias. This gives us maximum stopping power for those big overtaking opportunities.
If you find you are locking up a bit then drop the brake pressure a touch.
The new Pirelli tyres are testing for everyone right now.
We have found a good balance with 23.3 psi on the front tyres and 21.5 psi on the rears.
We are constantly testing and updating our setups, so bookmark this page and check back regularly!
