Zandvoort is a flowing, rolling, track full of sweeping corners and very few overtaking points. Our F1 23 Dutch setup will help you dominate on the dunes.
F1 23 Dutch setup
Zandvoort has undergone some remodelling to accommodate the modern F1 cars, with its two banked corners and thrilling elevation changes being its standout features.
Just like the track itself, F1 23 has also seen some changes since release. With that in mind, here's our updated F1 23 Dutch setup.
We've gone with 45-36 for the aerodynamic settings.
This might bog you down on the straights, but it will make you incredibly competitive through the corners of Zandvoort.
We recommend 50% on-throttle and 51% off-throttle differential.
This encourages the car to help get around corners. It is possible to overdo it on corner exit though so throttle management is advised.
We suggest -2.50 for the front camber and -1.00 for the rear. Zandvoort is a twisty circuit so this will help with cornering performance.
For the toe, we've gone with 0.06 for front toe and 0.25 for the rear toe. This also will assist steering whilst keeping straight-line performance for the two straights.
We've gone with 36-9 for the suspension and 10-5 for the anti-roll bars. This will make for a pointy and purposeful car on turn-in while allowing the weight to shift laterally.
Ride height is set to 36-40. This will add to the aerodynamics down the main straight, whilst also protecting you from some of the bigger kerbs around this track.
We've gone with 100% brake pressure and 53% brake bias. This is ideal for Zandvoort's many heavy braking zones.
If you find yourself locking up into the slower corners, feel free to move some of the brake bias more towards the rear.
We're using 22.7 PSI for the front tyres and 20.3 PSI for the rears.
This will prolong tyre life without sacrificing performance around the many corners of Zandvoort.
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 up a point or two for more stability
- For a more "pointy" car stiffen the front suspension & anti-roll bar in relation to the rear
- 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!
