F1 Manager 2022 setups: tips for creating the best car setup
Having one of the best drivers like Hamilton in your team in F1 Manager 2022 doesn’t mean you can easily win races. Your car you will be racing on should be adjusted according to the track you will be racing on and also according to the driver’s preferences. This guide will help you get the best car setup for each track in F1 Manager 2022.
Tips for best car setups in F1 Manager 2022
For the track you’ll be running on, you’re limited to three workouts. You can check out our workouts guide for more information.
After each practice session, you’ll try to balance the five main performance aspects of the car based on driver preference. This will increase its performance and give you additional bonuses.
The five biases
There are a total of 5 biases that will affect the other five aspects of a car in F1 Manager 22 depending on your driver’s preference
- Front fender angle – Affects oversteer, braking stability, cornering, traction, straights
- Rear wing angle – Affects oversteer, braking stability, cornering, traction, straights
- Anti-roll distribution – Affects oversteer, braking stability, cornering, traction
- Tire camber – Affects oversteer, braking stability, cornering, traction
- Pinch – Affects braking stability, cornering
Depending on the circuit, if the track has multiple straights, your main focus will be the front and rear fenders. The straight sections of a track are probably the only point you will gain over the others if you get left behind.
Tire camber primarily affects your braking and cornering stability, which is essential for maintaining speed.
Confidence in driver setup
When you start on a track in F1 Manager 22, you will notice that your driver will take experience from the track he will be racing on. When your driver has completed enough laps, he will stop gaining experience. At this time, the feedback indicator on the top right of your driver will turn blue.
You will then receive a radio message from the driver chatting with the race engineer. The duration will decrease depending on the quality of the race engineer you have. So be sure to hire a good race engineer to increase the experience gained.
You will have to call them for a pit stop and change the car configuration again according to the optimal configuration range. The optimal range will be indicated by blue bars.
Support in these bars will be your drivers’ preferred setting. The bar will get shorter as your drivers gain experience over time on a circuit. You will have to micro-manage the experience gained.
As stated earlier, pilots have a total of 15 trust points in setup which provide additional bonuses. 3 of the points are for track acclimatization which can be done simply by doing laps on a track.
Three of the points come from knowing the auto parts, the parts used and their comfort. The rest of the 9 points comes from configuration trust. This allows you to modify the car the way drivers want or like it.
Bonus points for setup confidence will increase your control, precision, cornering, braking and reactions, which will increase your driver’s car speed and reduce lap time.
