4 Tips For Picking The Best Car Setup In F1 Manager 2023
Managing a racing team isn’t always easy, but players can help their teams win by looking for the best car setups.
In F1 Manager 2023, made by Frontier Development, players are in charge of a Formula 1 team. Players don’t just focus on driving. Instead, they have to take care of everything else that comes with a racing team, from the race plan to keeping the facilities and finances in order. Changing how the driver’s car is set up is one of the main ways that players can change the result of a race. If a driver is unhappy with their setting, they are less likely to do well and more likely to make mistakes that cost them money.
Setup can be changed during a race weekend, but the best thing is for the driver to find the best setup as soon as possible for each track. In addition to the driver’s familiarity with the track and his or her knowledge of the car’s parts, how comfortable the driver is with their current setting will have a huge effect on how confident they feel when they start the race.
Manage Practise Sessions
Hands-on managing of practice sessions is one of the most important ways for players to get the best setup. Each race weekend will have at least two practice rounds where players can learn from their drivers how to improve and fine-tune how their cars are set up. During practice sessions, a small blue chat box icon will show up next to each driver’s name as they finish runs during long stints. This is how drivers can talk to each other.
Once all 5/5 comments have been made, players can call them into the pits to make changes to the setting. Or, they can let the drivers finish their shifts and get more Track Acclimatization, even if that means car parts wear out. Once the settings have been changed, the drivers can be sent out again, where they will give more feedback and help the player get closer and closer to the best setup. Even though it’s not always possible to get the right setup in every way. If anything is above 90%, the driver will be comfortable with the car during the race weekend.
Improve Driver Satisfaction
As was already said, driver happiness is an important part of getting ready for a race. Each driver has their own tastes, which change from track to track. Because of this, there is no “one size fits all” way to adjust driver setups. In F1 23, players experience a racing career from the driver’s point of view. These changes to the setup may or may not be accurate for the tracks. In this case, you don’t need to know what each circuit needs in order to get the best setup.
Instead, setups are changed through a small mini-game in which players adjust sliders for a variety of performance factors, trying to find a good balance between all of them. When asked how the set-up is going, drivers will also give helpful comments over the radio. If the reaction is positive, the setup is close to being right. If the reaction is negative, there will be a lot of tweaking and adjusting to do in the pit lane. Each change will take a certain amount of time, so it’s best to make these changes during practice sessions instead of wasting time during qualifying sessions.
Make Regular Adjustments
Getting feedback from the driver will help narrow down the variable. And let players focus on making more accurate setup changes. Sometimes, a perfect balance can be reached after just one session of practice. In this case, it’s best not to make any more changes that could throw off the car’s balance. If the driver complains to the race engineer about the changes the player made. The player can always go back to the setting that the driver liked best before.
Even when the setup is almost perfect, players can still try different things to make it better by changing their sliders in the blue area. As the drivers give feedback, this blue zone will get smaller. This means that players will have to get more and more accurate with their changes as the driver gets closer to their ideal setup. The goal of Drive Mad is to get rid of as much of this blue area as possible. Each measure will also be ranked by how comfortable it is, with Bad being the least comfortable and Optimal being the most comfortable. If all of the settings are set to Great or Optimal. That should be enough to get an ideal setup of more than 90%.
Adjust Parameters In Order
There are five parts of the setup that need to be balanced when the settings are changed. Each will have an effect on the way the car drives. Here’s a list of the parts and what they do:
- Front Wing Angle : Makes the car oversteer and turn more. Lessens the stability, traction, and straightness of braking.
- Rear Wing Angle : Increases stopping stability, cornering, and grip. Cuts down on straights and oversteer.
- Anti-Roll Distribution: Makes stopping more stable and improves traction. Cuts down on oversteering and turning.
- Tyre Camber: Makes the car oversteer and turn better. It makes it harder to get traction and stop.
- Toe-Out: Makes stopping more stable. Cuts down on cornering.
Even though each of these will affect the technical driving traits in a different wa. It is best to change the Front and Rear Wing Angles first. Because they will change all the other parameters and are the only way to change the Straights. Once the Straights are set, the other factors can be used to fine-tune everything else until they are in the best place. Toe-Out should be the last thing you change because it only has a big effect on Braking Stability. Because of this, you don’t have to get the best Braking Stability right away. After the other settings have been set, this can always be done.
