F1 22 Bahrain setup: best car settings for the first race

F1 22 Bahrain setup: best car settings for the first race

You’ll probably need the best F1 22 Bahrain setup for your very first race, as the career modes mimic the real world schedule. Since it’s the first race on the calendar, your car is unlikely to get any upgrades (unless you’re in a later season), so proper set-up is imperative to get a decent result.

The best setup of the F1 22 Bahrain will depend on your racing style, car performance and the weather conditions at night in the warm climate. As a starting point, we have the car settings you need in this best racing game item. The track has three DRS zones and 15 turns and always takes place at night, one of the few races that is illuminated by the floodlights. Run as many practice laps as you can to get used to your car for the rest of the season.

F1 22 Bahrain circuit explained

Bahrain as a whole is a fairly standard circuit, although the second sector is a windy section full of technical corners. Turn ten is especially important, as a smooth exit on the straight is vital. However, overtaking usually happens in the first corner as it comes home after the long straight. While you can do the same in Turn 14, expect whoever overtakes you to get back to you straight away, just as Verstappen and Leclerc switched places in the actual Grand Prix earlier this year.
