F1 23 Singapore Setup: Online, My Team, Career Mode settings


F1 23 Singapore Grand Prix

Singapore has had some changes to its layout for 2023, but our F1 23 setup will ensure you're fully prepared.

Codemasters has made radical handling changes for F1 23, something that is continuing to change thanks to regular updates.

This is the best F1 23 Singapore Grand Prix setup in the game. We've also got some adjustments you can make to tailor it specifically to your driving style.

F1 23 Singapore setup

Marina Bay Street Circuit is one of the toughest tracks on the F1 calendar. At two-hours, it's the longest in terms of time and unforgiving walls line the outside of the entire circuit.

Passing is very tough here, with the main spots being into Turns 7 and 14. 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 mostly 90-degree corners.

Singapore isn't too hard on the tyres thanks to its low average speed, but the rears do need to withstand some wear due to the multiple big traction zones. The fast corners can also scrape the fronts if you take them too quickly too.

Aerodynamics

Downforce is king in Singapore, so your wing angles should be very high by F1 23 standards. 50-48 gives you plenty of downforce while not impacting your top speed too much.

Transmission

We've gone with 50% on-throttle diff and 54% off-throttle diff. This allows for good rotation both on and off the throttle. That said, if the car is a bit too loose on throttle then try turning the off-throttle diff up to 55% or 56%.

Suspension geometry

Near-maximum camber values and minimum toe settings are best in Singapore. That's -2.70, -1.00, 0.04, and 0.16. This will give you loads of grip and won't impact your tyre life.

Suspension

We’ve gone for 26-8 on the suspension and 7-2 for the anti-roll bar. This gives good turn in for the slow speed corners, but plenty of stability to get back on the power without losing the rear.

Ride height is set to 33-36, a bit above the lowest it can go. This produces a lot of grip through the corners without creating much drag down the straights.

Brakes

100% brake pressure is best as usual, while 54% brake bias is a good balance between front and rear for Singapore.

Tyres

We have gone with near the minimum pressures across the board for this setup. So, that's 22.5-20.0 psi on the front/rear.

This will help keep the tyres in good shape through the race, though you may need to do a little more warm-up on an out-lap and the formation lap.

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 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!
