F1 22 France Setup: My Team, Career Mode, Online & more

The French Grand Prix is a tricky race to master, which is why this F1 22 France setup is so crucial.

Tyre wear is high here and overtaking is pretty easy, so you need a setup that won't leave you hanging out to dry at Le Castellet.

F1 22 France setup

The Circuit Paul Ricard is full of long corners and features some of the more tricky sections in the whole F1 game.

However it's also got a massive straight split into two by a chicane and some stunning opportunities to make passes.

This setup should have you flying around the circuit and claiming victory in no time!


With huge straights you want as little drag as possible.

As a result we've gone with 8-15 wing setting. It will have you flying down the straights, but there is enough rear performance elsewhere in the setup to get you through the corners.



This part of the setup is all about getting the power under your right foot through the rear wheels.

We've gone for 90% on-throttle differential which keeps the rear more stable and predictable when getting on the throttle out of corners.

The 54% off-throttle differential aids rotation into the corners.

Suspension geometry

This part of the setup hasn't changed much from last year.

Our setting is -2.50 on the front camber and -1.00 for the rear camber. Front toe is set to 0.05 and rear toe is 0.20.


This is where we get some of that rear grip and performance back from the low rear wing.

We've gone with 4-2 suspension and 7-1 anti-roll bars. This provides a stable platform that has good turn-in performance and lets the rear of the car grip up gradually as weight transfers rather than snapping on you.

The ride height of 2-4 keeps you slippery down the straights and gives the rear of the car some space to load up without bottoming out.


You need some good stopping power for the French Grand Prix.

We've gone with 100% brake pressure and 50% brake bias. This gives you maximum stopping power for the major overtaking points.

If you find you are locking up too much with this setting then drop the brake pressure a few points.


The new 18" Pirellis are tricky to figure out.

We've found good success at Le Castellet with 23.3 psi on the front tyres and 23.0 psi on the rears.
