Aerodynamic

While Suzuka has some long straights, you won’t come close to passing anyone unless you have good cornering speed. To this end, higher levels of aerodynamics are required for Esses, Degners and Spoon, to name but a few of the corners.

Higher rear wing values ​​will be what you need in both wet and dry, with the rear more likely to break on you and lead to oversteer, as opposed to understeer , on this track.

Transmission

The drivetrain is something you can take a relatively neutral approach to at Suzuka. While there aren’t too many really slow corners on the track, there are enough to show that you need a good level of traction while fighting tire wear and sustained grip in the turns.

The Japanese Grand Prix isn’t too hard on the tyres, as long as you have the right setup, so we went with a mix of 60% and 50% on the throttle and off differential settings respectively.

Suspension geometry

As you may have noticed, we’ve gotten quite aggressive with the camber settings on the car’s setup for the Japanese GP. Given the number of hard corners like the Esses and Spoon at the Suzuka Circuit, you’ll need that lateral grip. With settings elsewhere, like on the differential and later on the suspension and anti-roll bar, you shouldn’t suffer from tire wear.

We also went with an equally aggressive setup when it comes to toe angles. You need a sharp turn at Suzuka – it’s pretty much a required part of the car setup. A stable car is also required, although we have allowed a small margin for error with both camber and toe-in. So, you may find that you need to adjust it a bit to your liking. Still, it’s okay to go to extremes and then back off a bit.

Suspension

Suzuka is quite a bumpy place, especially when you come out of the last corner in F1 22 and cross the finish line. While the Japanese GP isn’t a tire killer overall, the track can put a lot of stress on the tires, so you don’t want an overly sprung car either.

We also went with a mixed wet and dry anti-roll bar setup because the last thing you want to do is kill the tires or lose the car’s responsiveness. Thus, a softer setting of the front anti-roll bar can be complemented by a stiffer rear setting.

As for ride height, while we’re going to see increased levels of drag, the higher values ​​we’ve set will keep your car stable over bumps and curbs. Suzuka curbs can be quite harsh on the car and cause a lot of problems, so you’ll want the rear ride height raised as much as possible before things get a little silly. This will allow you to tackle those curbs more aggressively and overall extract a faster lap time from yourself and the car.

Brakes

With these brake setups, you can compensate for the risk of binding through high brake pressure (100%), with only a few adjustments to the brake bias (50%) as a whole.

Tires

An increase in tire pressure can lead to increased tire wear. Still, with the rest of the setup already in place, you hopefully won’t have to worry about that. So increase the tire pressure to get more straight line speed out of your car.

The best overtaking spots here are in the Casio Chicane at the end of the lap and on the start-finish straight with DRS. Get the right speed in a straight line and you can perform these moves with ease.

So here is our setup guide for the Japanese GP in F1 22. Suzuka is an old school, tight and twisty venue that still punishes mistakes in a big way, but it’s still fun to drive, driver test and the machine to the limit.
