The Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari presents a challenge like no other. This is why you need this incredible F1 23 Imola setup.
F1 23 Imola setup
Imola is one of the most famous race tracks in the world for good reason. Along with Monza, also in Italy, Imola stakes a claim as one of the best race tracks ever designed.
Much like the track itself, the ideal Imola setup has evolved over time. Here's our updated F1 23 Imola setup.
We're going with 30-28 when it comes to aerodynamics.
This will give a responsive front-end and solid rear that won't suddenly swap on you through Piratella.
This part of the setup is all about how the rear wheels are allowed to rotate. We recommend going with 57% on-throttle and 51% off-throttle for the differentials.
This creates good rotation in the car and lets you get on the power with confidence.
We think -2.70 for the front camber and -1.00 for the rear camber is what you should be using. This will maximise speed down the rare straight section whilst increasing performance in the corners.
The toes should be set to 0.02 for the front and 0.13 for the rear. This will help with turning without slowing the car too much.
We've gone with 24-7 on the suspension and 8-2 for the anti-roll bars. This will help you change direction quickly during a lap.
Ride height is set to 33-36. This lifts the car as you ride a lot of kerbs around a lap at Imola.
We've gone for 100% brake pressure and a front brake bias of 55%.
This will help slow the car for the tricky corners, especially the hairpin, without inducing lockups.
For Imola you want as much contact with the road as possible, so we have gone with 22.7 PSI on the front tyres and 20.3 PSI on the rears.
It's crucial to get temperature into the tyres as quick as possible around Imola, and these pressures help do just that.
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!
