The Hungaroring is known for its lack of straights and technical corners. With this F1 23 Hungary Grand Prix setup, you'll be Hungary for victory.
F1 23 Hungary setup
The Hungaroring is often likened to Monaco without the barriers. High downforce is the only way you can go here, as high wing angles are required to generate the grip to be fast around the corners.
F1 23 has seen multiple updates since release, each changing the dynamics of the car. Here's our updated F1 23 Hungary setup.
We recommend 46-42 for the aerodynamic setup in Hungary.
This sounds high, but downforce is key at the Hungaroring. Plenty of slow, tight corners mean you need your wings at maximum.
We’ve gone with 50% on-throttle differential and 50% off-throttle differential.
This lets the differential assist with the steering, which in Hungary is vital.
A front and rear camber of -2.80 and -1.00 respectively is the best for Hungary.
Front and rear toe of 0.04 and 0.19 respectively will give you that extra steering potential without compromising speed on the rare straight sections.
We’ve gone for 30-8 on the suspension and 8-1 for the anti-roll bar. This gives good turn in for the slow and medium-speed corners, but plenty of stability in the chassis to get back on the power without losing the rear.
Ride height is set to 35-36, lifting the car clear of the bigger kerbs. The higher car also brings more downforce from the wings.
100% brake pressure is still the F1 23 meta, while 55% brake bias is a good balance between front and rear for Hungary.
With the number of braking zones in Hungary, locking up is almost inevitable. Caution on the brake pedal is advised, but this setup will limit the chances of flat-spotting the tyres.
We suggest a front tyre pressure of 22.5 PSI and a rear pressure of 20.1 PSI.
This will extend the life of the tyres, but will require extra weaving on outlaps to get the temperature into the rubber.
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!
