A new game, a new season, and new regulations. With the 2022 F1 season underway, F1 22 is there to accompany it, and with new regulations abound, setups are vastly different from F1 2021. Let us start the season with the Bahrain Grand Prix!

In this guide, we will be looking at the best Bahrain setups for F1 22 in order for us to get the most out of our car and have us fighting for points in our My Career mode, maximizing our time in Time Trial mode or dominating the field in online races.

The Bahrain International Circuit

The Bahrain Internal Circuit is host to the Bahrain Grand Prix, the first Grand Prix to take place in the Middle East. Practice sessions here usually take place during the day and dawn while qualifying and the race takes place at night making for some interesting variables when cars speed through the track.

The track consists of a lot of pretty tight corners that lead to crests that can lead to instability of cars going on the power. It also has quite a lot of straights. In fact, there are 3 DRS zones on this track making top speed a bit of a priority.

In addition to this, there are also quite a number of rather quick switchbacks and sweeping corners, all going through elevation changes which unsettle the car quite effectively.

With 15 total corners, this makes the Bahrain International Circuit a rather tricky track to get right, especially since you will be wanting to ride the kerbs in some of the corners to get the apex of them.

Setups

Below will be a list of setups that would act as great baseline setups. If you feel that the below setups are not working for you, feel free to adjust them to suit your driving style better.
