F1 22 Italy wet setup

Rain isn't common in Italy for the Monza round of the F1 22 season, but you'll still need a good wet weather setup here.

The Italian Grand Prix is one of the most popular events on the Formula 1 calendar. We always have fun racing around here, whatever the weather is doing.

Monza is the fastest circuit on the calendar. It's primarily made up of long straights separated by chicanes and medium speed corners. So, low downforce is the order of the day.

Even in the wet, you'll be regularly topping 200 mph (320 kph) down most of the straights here.

Aerodynamics

Your wings will have to be almost as flat as a tea tray to be fast around Monza.

Even in the rain, these wings angles are very low, lower than most circuits in the dry. So, we've opted for a 5-8 setup here. This is high enough to be quick around corners like the Parabolica and Ascari Chicane.

Transmission

The transmission sets how the power is driven through the engine and to the wheels. You need a diff that is locked for on-throttle and more open for off-throttle.

We've found that 95% on-throttle differential keeps the rear in-line when you get on the power. 58% for off-throttle differential gives you some extra rotation on turn-in when you're off the throttle through corners like Parabolica.

Suspension geometry

Like always in the wet, you'll need to have the biggest possible contact patch between your tyres and the tarmac. This will increase tyre wear, but you'll still be able to do a one-stop race without any issues.

So, we've gone with the minimum possible camber and toe angles. That means -2.50 for front camber and -1.00 for rear camber. Also, 0.05 for front toe and 0.20 for rear toe.

Suspension

The suspension settings around Monza are tricky to nail, but we've found a good compromise here.

The rear suspension needs to be very soft, to allow for a lot of flex over the kerbs. However, the front suspension should be the opposite, in order to withstand large shocks from the kerbs.

7-1 suspension and 7-1 anti-roll bars make the car responsive on the front-end and controllable on the rear.

The 7-4 ride height is unorthodox, but it lets you get your front tyres up on the kerbs through the chicanes and gives you some tremendous speed. Thanks to the small wing angles, you'll also still be quick down the straights.

Brakes

Stopping power is critical at Monza. There are some of the longest braking zones in racing around this track, particularly that into Turn 1.

The 98% brake pressure provides maximum stopping power for those big overtaking moves into the chicanes. 52% brake bias also gives you a good balance between the front and rear discs.

If you're locking up too much, don't be shy to drop the brake pressure by a few points.

Tyres

The new Pirelli tyres are harder to heat up, but that does mean they'll be able to withstand higher pressures.

So, to keep the heat in your full wets down the straights, you'll need to go with 23.5 psi on the fronts and 23.0 psi on the rears.
