It might not be on the 2023 calendar but Paul Ricard returns for this year's game. Our F1 23 France setup will help you sail around La Castellet.

With F1 24 right around the corner, now's the best time to get those final laps in ahead of this year's release.

Circuit Paul Ricard might not be the most popular track on the calendar, but it's a blast to drive around. With its long straights perfect for overtaking, fast, sweeping corners, and a technical section in the middle for good measure, Paul Ricard is a test for any driver.

F1 23's many patches and updates since release have changed the car's dynamics considerably. Therefore you'll need our updated F1 23 France setup.


We've gone for 18-18 for the aerodynamic setup.

Paul Ricard requires the car to be slippery down the straights and grippy for the corners. This setup provides the necessary downforce without compromising straight-line speed.


This part of the setup is all about how the rear wheels function. We have gone with 50% on-throttle and 52% off-throttle differential.

This will help rotate the car through both the fast and slow corners. Just be careful getting the power down after the slower corners or you may find yourself spinning.

Suspension geometry

We suggest -2.60 for front camber and -1.00 for rear camber. This maintains your speed down the straights whilst helping the car turn into corners.

0.02 for the front toe and 0.10 for the rear toe is ideal. This will generate the needed heat for the tyres without causing too much wear.


We've gone with 21-12 on the suspension and 1-8 for the anti-roll bars. This creates an ideal chassis for both the fast and slow transitions.

Ride height is set to 35-38. This will protect the floor as you take on the kerbs through the trio of chicanes in France.


We recommend 100% brake pressure and 54% brake bias.

This gives you maximum stopping power through the whole lap. It is possible to lock up the front wheels in the heavy braking zones, so feel free to adjust the bias if needed.

We're running 23.2 PSI for the front tyres and 20.6 PSI on the rears.

This will give maximum performance without losing tyre life.


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!
