F1 22: Spa (Belgium) Setup Guide (Wet and Dry)

We've got the best F1 22 Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) dry and wet lap setup in Career Mode, My Team & Online.


The Spa circuit is one of the most fearsome on the Formula One calendar. It provides a very unique challenge, with Sector 1 and Sector 3 being all about high-speed, but Sector 2 being a tight and twisty affair, requiring plenty of downforce.

As you would imagine, it’s not the easiest track to setup for in the game. So, this is our setup guide for the tough but very entertaining Belgian GP in F1 22.

Aerodynamics setup

Spa is mostly about power and straight-line speed, but then Sector 2 requires quite a bit of downforce. In the real Formula One, you will regularly see relatively skinny rear wings to deal with the higher speed demands.


In F1 22, you can bring the rear wing to below the default six-rating, as well as the front wing, to create a balanced setup for the circuit. Doing this allows you to push hard in the middle sector and not lose out in Sectors 1 and 3.

Transmission setup

While the current Formula One tyres allow for one-stop races at most venues, including Spa, the Belgian Grand Prix is still one of the harsher tracks on tyres. As recently as 2015, we saw a blowout for Sebastian Vettel and his Ferrari just a couple of laps from the end.


You can afford to open up the differential settings a little bit in the wet and the dry for Spa. The track doesn’t have many slow-speed corners, with La Source and the Bus Stop Chicane being the main two. This should help to keep the tyres in decent condition and allow for good traction in the longer corners.

Suspension geometry setup

It is tempting to go all the way to the left and right with the front and rear camber, but going too aggressive either way will just see you chew up the tyres – especially if you haven’t offset tyre wear in other areas of the car.

You do, of course, want as much grip as possible in the corners, given that some of Spa’s corners are rather long. Should you lose that grip, you’ll probably end up connecting with the barriers.

You can certainly get away with smaller toe values, though, which will assist you in the longer corners that the track has, particularly Pouhon and Blanchimont. These are very long and sustained corners, are two of the most important on the circuit, and are two of the riskiest in wet conditions.

Suspension setup

Get that ride height as low as possible to maximise your straight-line speed in Sectors 1 and 3: it is, after all, what Spa is all about. If your straight-line speed isn’t up to the job, you are going to be overtaken pretty easily at the Belgian GP.

You can certainly afford to be more aggressive and firmer with your suspension settings at Spa, giving good stability in the longer corners. Having a slightly softer anti-roll bar setup will further assist your drive in the prolonged corners. Any lack of initial responsiveness could be amended with another turn of the front wing, if that is what you need.

Brakes setup

Keep that braking pressure at 100% for both the wet and the dry, but definitely play around with the brake bias a little bit in the wet.

The fronts locking up is probably your biggest worry in the dry, but it might flip around to being the rear tires when it comes to the wet weather. So, take it nice and easy and adjust accordingly to keep your car stable.

Tyres setup

You’ll want to crank those tyre pressures up as much as you possibly dare at the Belgian GP in F1 22, to reduce that rolling resistance and eke out just a little bit more straight-line speed. Hopefully, the rest of the setup will help with any increase in tyre temperatures and not wear out the tyres.

For the wet, increase the tyre pressures a little bit. The wet and intermediate tyres will be in for a bit of a rough ride around this track, and it is very easy to spin up those rear wheels in damp conditions.

The Belgian Grand Prix is the longest on the F1 calendar, and it is quite possible that it could rain on one side of the circuit while being dry on another part. Get it wrong, and Spa will certainly punish you, but get it right, and you’ll enjoy one of the most rewarding driving experiences that you can find in F1 22.
