Wet weather isn't uncommon in Hungary, so you'll need a good rain setup when the heavens open in F1 22.
The Hungaroring was Formula 1's first forray behind the Iron Curtain in the 1980s. Hungary has been ever-present on the calendar ever since and is still a challenging circuit for the modern cars.
F1 22 Hungary wet setup
The Hungaroring is one of the tightest and narrowest tracks on the calendar. Getting a good setup for this tricky in both the dry and the wet.
The kerbs are harsh, there's little run-off and passing is extremely difficult. All of these factors are exagerated in the wet too.
While wing angles are generally lower in F1 22 than previous games, downforce is still king in Hungary. High wings make the straight-line performance of thd car worse, but you'll be rapid in the corners.
We've opted for 40-40 wings for the Hungaroring. This makes your turn in great and the rear end planted.
Transmission sets how the power from the engine is transmitted to the wheels when you're on and off the accelerator pedal.
We've gone with 100% on-throttle differential to keep the rear from stepping out when you get your foot down on the exit of the corners.
An off-throttle differential of 55% gives the car good responsiveness under braking and plenty of turn-in when you're coasting through long corners.
Tyre wear isn't high enough to make you do more than a one-stop in Hungary. Because of the very durable wet tyres, you can do the whole race distance with two sets without having to conserve your tyres.
So, we've gone with the lowest camber and toe angles for maximum grip.
-2.50 on the front camber and -1.00 on the rear camber is best. 0.05 on the front toe with 0.20 on the rear toe are also ideal.
Suspension dictates how the ride of the car reacts to the circuit you're racing on. In general in the wet, this has to be on the soft side to be more accomodating of the lack of grip on the rainy tarmac.
We've gone with 6-1 on the suspension and 5-1 on the rear anti-roll bar. This gives you great turn-in performance without making the car snappy when changing direction.
The 5-6 ride height will give the rear wing room to work while allowing you to take some liberties with the kerbs
Hungary is one of the hardest circuits of the year on brakes. So, good stopping power is vital, especially on a low-grip wet surface.
We've gone with 95% brake pressure and 54% brake bias. This gives you the most stopping power available and in a way that is a good balance between the front and rear.
If you find yourself locking up with these settings then lower the brake pressure.
The tyres in F1 22 allow for higher pressures due to being larger than in previous years.
So, you can crank the fronts up to 23.5 psi on the front tyres and 23.0 psi on the rears without fear of overheating.
