Australia has been relegated to third in the calendar in 2023, and there have also been changes around the track. With the new layout, this F1 23 Australia setup will see you dominate Down Under.
F1 23 Australia setup
The Albert Park circuit saw major renovations in 2022, opening the circuit up and creating a fast, flowing piece of tarmac in the heart of Melbourne. The changes have made the track more akin to Silverstone, with fast, sweeping corners where heavy braking zones used to be.
With F1 23's many patches changing the ways the cars feel, we've updated our Australia update to give you the best chance around Albert Park.
An aerodynamic setup of 30-26 will help keep the car planted through the fast corners.
The front wing bias will also assist with turning into the slower corners.
This controls how the rear wheels are allowed to rotate. We have gone with 53% on-throttle and 52% off-throttle for the transmission settings.
This will give the car plenty of rotation without punishing you for getting on the power too quickly.
We've gone with -2.60 and -1.00 for the camber. This will maintain speed through the switchbacks around Albert Park.
A front toe of 0.03 and a rear toe of 0.12 will help get heat into the tyres whilst also assisting with turn in.
We've set the suspension to 23-3 and the anti-roll bars to 6-1. This will allow the car to handle the switchbacks without losing control.
Ride height is set to 34-37 to avoid some of the harsher kerbs. This also works well with the aerodynamic setup.
We recommend 100% brake pressure and 55% brake bias for Australia.
This will give you the best stopping performance without always locking up.
We suggest setting your front tyres to 22.6 PSI and your rears to 20.2 PSI.
This will give good performance when needed without draining the tyre life too much on longer stints.
These setups are intended for intermediate players who may still be using assists like traction control and ABS. However, if you are looking for an extra edge then you can try a few of these adjustments:
- Decrease the wing levels by 1-3 clicks to improve top speed
- This will make the car less capable on turn-in and less stable in high-speed direction changes
- If the car doesn't feel like it is doing what you want on turn-in then raise the front wing a click or two
- If the car is too loose at low speeds try moving the off-throttle differential for more stability
- For a more "pointy" car stiffen the front suspension & anti-roll bar
- This will make getting traction trickier
- Don't be afraid to move brake bias during the lap. More frontward will give better performance in heavy braking zones, and a rearward for lighter braking zones
- Lockups are easier to achieve in F1 23 than previous games. Front locking is less catastrophic than rear locking, and which way you go from our mark will increase your chances of a lockup in that direction
- Add a click of tyre pressure for short online races to improve tyre warm-up!
