Looking for the best F1 22 controller settings?

We all know how important it is to have the right controller settings in racing games, and with F1 2022 being the newest release in the series, it’s no different.

We’ve put together a quick guide on the best F1 22 controller settings that you can use to help you get ahead of the competition.

So, whether you’re a beginner or a more experienced racer, read on to find out how to set up your controller for optimum performance.

F1 2022 Generic Controls

  • MFD Car Setup Panel = Default
  • Trigger Vibration = On
  • Overtake ERS Mode = Hold
  • Adaptive triggers = Medium

Make sure the ERS Overtake mode is set to “Hold” as that will result much easier to manage your energy during the race and especially during the overtaking maneuvers.

If you set it to Hold it will mean that you can keep the button fully pressed to use the extra power for as long as you possibly need.

F1 22 Controller Calibration Settings

In order to change your controller calibration settings, head over to “Calibration” and configure the following settings.

  • Steering Deadzone = 10
  • Steering Linearity = 40
  • Steering Saturation = 0
  • Throttle Deadzone = 0
  • Throttle Linearity = 50 (also try with 0)
  • Throttle Saturation = 0
  • Brake Deadzone = 0
  • Brake Linearity = 35 (also try with 0)
  • Brake Saturation = 0

Vibration & Force Feedback settings

  • Vibration & Force Feedback = On
  • Vibration & Force Feedback strength = 100
  • On Track Effects = 100
  • Rumble Strip Effects = 100
  • Off Track Effects = 100
  • Wheel Damper = 50
  • Understeer Enhance = On
  • Maximum Wheel Rotation (F1 & F2) = 360°
  • Maximum Wheel Rotation (Supercars) = 900°

Vibration & Force Feedback settings

For some drivers, heavy amounts of Force Feedback can prove difficult with controllers so you can lower it down to 70 or 50 in case you needed less FFB response.

Can you use a controller on F1 22?

Of course you can use a controller in F1 22, but be aware that it won’t be as easy and realistic to drive as with a proper racing wheel. That’s because the FFB you get from a controller is very limited compared to a Fanatec or Thrustmaster racing wheel.

Is F1 2022 hard on controller?

It’s usually fairly hard to drive and win online races with a controller, but it can get much easier with proper controller calibration and FFB settings. Consider reading our detailed controller settings guide for that.


So here were all the most realistic and advanced controller settings for Formula 1 2022.

Remember to experiment and see what works best for you, as all drivers are different.

We hope that this guide will help you get the most out of your sim racing experience!
