F1 23 Miami Setup: Online, career mode, and my team settings


F1 23 Miami setup

One of Formula 1's newest tracks Miami wraps itself around the Hard Rock stadium in Miami. It's a hard track to master, with its characteristics changing sector by sector, which makes this F1 23 Miami setup so critical.

The Miami International Autodrome made its F1 debut in 2022 and has given us some relatively interesting races. Dominated by two long straights, connected by some fast sweepers and a slow, tight, and twisty section, the track challenges the setup of the car.

As F1 23 evolves, so does the setup meta. With that in mind, here's our updated F1 23 Miami setup.

Aerodynamics

We've gone with 16-17 for the aerodynamic setup.

This will help you get the nose into the slow corners whilst keeping you streamlined down the straights.

Transmission

This part of the setup dictates how the rear wheels rotate in relation to one another. We've gone with 57% on-throttle and 52% off-throttle differentials.

This will give you nice rotation through the corners and allow you to get the power down early without the rear complaining too much.

Suspension geometry

We recommend -2.70 for front camber and -1.00 for rear camber. This will maintain straight-line speed down the long back straight.

Then it's 0.03 for front toe and 0.20 for rear toe. This will get the required temperature into the rubber for that much-needed grip.

Suspension

We've gone with 22-8 for the suspension and 10-1 on the anti-roll bars. This stiffens the car enough for slow cornering whilst keeping it loose for the fast transitions.

Ride height is set to 35-38. While lower would be better for the straights, this setting allows you ride the kerbs a bit more, something you absolutely must do through the infamous overpass chicane.

Brakes

We've gone with the maximum 100% brake pressure and the reliable 56% brake bias.

This will stop the car at the end of the high-speed sections without risking a compromising lockup.

Tyres

We suggest running 23.0 PSI on the front tyres and 20.5 PSI on the rear tyres.

This will give you plenty of tyre life and good grip, but slightly slower warm-up when leaving the pits.

Adjustments

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!
