Silverstone is arguably the best track on the Formula 1 calendar. With its mix of fast, sweeping corners and tight, technical turns, this is a true test for any driver.
We have the ideal F1 23 Britain setup to see you soar at Silverstone.
F1 23 Britain setup
Silverstone is one of the most thrilling circuits on the Formula 1 calendar. The UK track has many high-speed corners making it one of the fastest on the roster.
Silverstone has seen a lot of changes over the years, and so has our setup for this iconic track. Here's our updated F1 23 Britain setup.
We've gone for 26-22 for the aerodynamic settings.
This will help maintain speed through the fast sections, whilst offering more downforce for the slower corners like Vale and Luffield.
The transmission dictates how the rear wheels rotate in relation to each other both on and off the throttle. A 55% on-throttle diff and 50% off-throttle diff is ideal for Silverstone.
This allows for good rotation both on and off the throttle. Just don't get the power down too quickly, especially on the kerbs, as you'll end up in a spin.
We suggest camber values of -2.50 and -1.50 for the front and rear respectively. This provides the best trade-off between speed and cornering ability.
A front and rear toe of 0.00, and 0.12 respectively will give that extra kick of speed down the legendary Wellington and Hangar straights.
We’ve gone for 28-8 on the suspension and 8-1 for the anti-roll bar. This gives the flexibility to flick the car through the quick transitional Maggotts and Becketts.
Ride height is set to 33-35 to raise the car above the kerbs. This also lifts the rear wing that little bit more to provide downforce when needed.
100% brake pressure is the F1 23 meta, while 56% brake bias is a good balance between front and rear for Britain.
Locking up is still possible, so practice trail braking for the heavy braking zones. If you're still getting flat spots, feel free to move the bias more towards the rear.
We've chosen a higher 23.0 PSI for the front tyre pressure, and 20.5 PSI for the rears.
This prolongs the tyre life for each stint, but will require more weaving to generate heat on an outlap.
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!
