F1 22 Miami (USA) Setup (Wet and Dry)

We've got the best F1 22 Miami (USA) dry and wet lap setup in Career Mode, My Team, Time Trial & Online.


F1 continues to grow in popularity in the United States, with Miami being the newest addition to the F1 calendar, which already features Austin (COTA). Because of that, we have compiled a list of the best F1 setups below.

The Miami International Autodrome is a street circuit with Hard Rock Stadium, home to the Miami Dolphins, at its epicentre. The track is 5.412 km in length, consists of 19 corners, three DRS zones, and speeds of up to 320 km/h.


The course starts with slow-speed corners in Sector 1 before moving on to high-speed twists and turns in the latter part of the sector. 

Sector 2 begins flat out at Turns 9 and 10 (DRS after T9), with overtaking opportunities before the hairpin at Turn 11. There are low-speed turns in the latter part of Sector 2 which need to be taken carefully.

Sector 3 has a very long straight with a DRS zone, providing a great opportunity to overtake opponents, before entering the heavy braking zone at Turn 17.

Max Verstappen won in the first race on this track in 2022 and currently holds the record for the fastest lap time on this circuit at 1:31:361.


Setup components can be tricky to understand, but you can learn more about them in the complete F1 22 setup guide. Without further ado, here is the best F1 USA race setup list we created.

Aerodynamics 

This is a high-speed circuit with three straights and three DRS zones. Sector 3 has the longest straight between Turns 16 and 17 with a top speed of up to 320km/h. It also has fast-flowing sections akin to Jeddah, and elevation changes. In dry conditions, set the front and rear aero to 8 and 16. The relatively low downforce configuration is due to the three straights between Turns 19 and 1 (start-finish straight), Turns 16 and 17 in Sector 3, and Turns 10 and 11 in Sector 2. The downforce levels aren’t too low and will cater to the medium-speed sections of Sector 1 and the latter part of Sector 2. 

In wet conditions, the front and rear wings are increased to 33 and 38. Increasing the fronts a bit more in comparison to the rear combats the loss of grip and improves turn-in. 


Transmission 

For dry conditions, the on-throttle differential is set to 100% so that traction is maximised out of Turns 1, 8, and 16. Traction out of the corners is important so that you can get a good exit out of the high-speed corners and into the straight sections of the track. Overtaking opportunities will arise in the DRS zones of Sector 3 and the start-finish straight. The off-throttle differential is set to 50% so that it’s easier to get the car turned into corners. 

The wet on-throttle differential is at 70%, which is a bit lower than in the dry to prevent excessive wheel spin due to low grip levels. Off-throttle is kept at 50% in the wet.

Suspension Geometry 

To make the car more responsive so you can turn in with maximum grip, the front camber is at -2.50 in dry conditions. This will assist in the slow-speed turns in Sector 2 (Turn 11 to Turn 16) and preserve the tyres. Set the rear camber to -1.0 to give the car good grip around the high-speed turns (T1, T2, T3, T4, T5) in Sector 1 and minimise rear tyre wear. It is easy to lose time on these turns. 

The front and rear toe are set to 0.05 and 0.20 so that straight-line speed is maximised along with high-speed stability. This is especially helpful on the DRS straights. The suspension geometry values stay the same in the wet. 

Suspension

Being a high-speed circuit, the car will need a stiffer rear suspension to minimise oversteer and increase stability at high-speed lefts. Set the front suspension to 1 and the rear to 9. You will need to take curbs aggressively in Sector 1 on Turns 4, 5, and 6, and on turns like these, you’ll need a softer front end. 

Front and rear anti-roll bars are at 1 and 8. If the car feels a little unstable (understeers) through the exits of Turns 10 and 19, you can turn up the value of the front ARB. 

In wet conditions, stiffen the front suspension to 2 and soften the rear suspension to 5Front and rear ARB are at 2 and 5 too. This ensures the car doesn’t react harshly to bumps and minimises wheel spin.

In the dry, the ride height is set to 2 and 7 in the front and rear, which is sufficiently low to not bottom out on the straights in Sectors 2 and 3 (longest straight), while keeping drag low due to the rake angle of the car. 

In the wet, the front ride height is raised to 5 which allows you to maintain grip and improve aerodynamic stability.

Brakes

Having the maximum braking potential is crucial in the Miami street circuit. Hence, brake pressure is at 100%. To reduce front locking in the heavy braking zones of Turns 1 and 17, the brake bias is kept at 50%The brake setup remains the same in wet conditions.

Tyres

Being a high-speed circuit, go for higher tyre pressures in dry conditions to achieve better straight-line speed. Set the front and rear pressures to 25 psi and 23 psi. The rear tyre pressure is lower than the front to ensure better traction and higher stability in high-speed corners at Turns 9, 10, and 19, allowing the car to exit at the highest speed possible

In the wet, lower the tyre pressures to 23.5 psi for the front and 22.7 psi at the rear to increase grip in slippery conditions.

Pit window (25% race)

This track isn’t particularly harsh on tyres. It’s recommended that you start on the softs, going on to pit on laps 7-9 for the mediums which should last you comfortably until the end of the race. This remains the same for the wet.

Fuel strategy (25% race)

In the dry, fuel is kept at +1.5 which should allow you to reach the end of the race without having to worry about a refuel, especially because more than 70 percent of the lap is flat out. 

In the wet, increase the fuel load to +2.2 to help with mechanical grip in the slow-speed corners.
