F1 23 Monaco setup

Glamorous off the track, and a nightmare on it! The crown jewel of Formula 1, Monaco sees all the stars pay a visit to the F1 grid. While you don't quite get the glitz and glamour in the game that you do in real life, this F1 23 Monaco setup will see you win big in Monte Carlo.

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

Monaco is perhaps the biggest challenge in the F1 game. The narrow streets of the principality wind up and down the hills with barriers there to catch any mistake.

The circuit itself hasn't seen many changes in recent years, but F1 23 has had a long list of updates that have changed the dynamics of the car. Here's our updated F1 23 Monaco setup.


You need all the wing you can get in Monaco, so we've gone for 50-48 for the aerodynamics.

Monaco is the total opposite of Baku, Jeddah, and even Las Vegas, with slow, tight corners and heavy braking zones. The downforce focused more to the front will help push the car down through these corners.


This part of the setup dictates how the rear wheels rotate in relation to each other. We recommend 50% on-throttle differential and 53% off-throttle differential.

This gets the car to assist in steering, with the rear axle pushing the car through the corners. Spinning out is a real possibility though so don't get the power down too early.

Suspension geometry

We suggest setting the front and rear camber to -2.50 and -1.00 respectively. This will help with steering, with the inside wheels pulling the cars around the tight turns.

Front and rear toe of 0.06 and 0.27 respectively will give you the extra speed down the pit straight whilst also helping with cornering.


Monaco is all about rotation, so with that in mind we've gone for 12-7 on the suspension and 7-2 with the anti-roll bars. This flexibility will ease the car around the corners whilst allowing for higher speeds on the faster transitions.

Ride height is set to 36-42. This lets you ride all the kerb you can in order to maximise corner angles. The rake also helps add more front-end to the overall setup.


100% brake pressure is still ideal, while 54% brake bias is a good spot for Monaco.

There are plenty of heavy braking zones around Monte Carlo, so getting the brakes right is key. Front wheel lockups are common in Monaco, so pushing the bias towards the rear will stop you hitting the barriers at Rascasse.


We've gone with 22.2 PSI on the front tyres and 20.0 PSI on the rears.

This will provide good mechanical grip and let you push the car hard in qualifying.


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 few clicks for more stability
  • For a more "pointy" car stiffen the front suspension & anti-roll bar
    • This will make getting traction trickier
    • The opposite is true, so you can soften the front suspension to remove "pointy" characteristics
  • 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!
