F1 22 Graphics Settings – This guide will show you the best graphics settings for F1 22 for low-end gaming PCs. You will have a smoother experience in-game, and it might also help you eliminate various performance issues if you are having any, of course.
Before we start, If you are a medium-high end user with a decent GPU. You can just max out the game. Just skip to the last portion of this article, where I have shown a video of F1 running on a RTX 3060 Ti. You would get a good idea from that.
F1 22 Graphics Settings Guide
One of the biggest launches of 2022, is finally available now on all major gaming platforms. This 15th installment to the F1 series, F1 22 is, undoubtedly, one of the most anticipated racing titles of this year, and you can easily tell by looking at the comments it is getting from the community and the reviewers.
F1 22 offers a raw racing experience and is also the official video game of the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship. Due to new regulations implemented exclusively for the Formula One World Championship 2022, the cars have been completely revamped. And now they feature new models and reworked physics.
Speaking of the performance of F1 22 on PC, it is honestly one of the most optimized games I have seen in 2022. I did test the game on an RTX 3060 ti, RTX 2060, GTX 1650, and on my Lenovo Legion 5 Pro consisting of an RTX 3060. And apart from some little freezing, that too on the GTX 1650, I didn’t face any performance issues. Some people are facing some technical errors, though.
Now, it is a known fact that not everyone is sitting with a high-end gaming rig. In fact, according to the latest Steam hardware survey, one of the top 3 most used GPUs in the world is still a GTX 1050 Ti. And this is where PC gaming shines. You don’t always need overpriced hardware to play games, as you can tweak the in-game graphics settings of the game you want to play and then get the best performance out of it, even if you don’t have a high-end gaming rig.

F1 22 Performance Analysis and Benchmarks
|MINIMUM FPS (LOW 1%)||AVERAGE FPS||MAXIMUM FPS|
As I said earlier, F1 22 is one of the most optimized titles I have tested in 2022. I tested the game on 4 GPUS, and it ran without hiccups on all 4 of them.
I was doing my benchmarking on the “Saudi Arabia” circuit with the Weather Condition set to “Wet”, which is supposed to be more demanding than “Dry”. But surprisingly, I didn’t experience any performance issues at all.
I was getting more than 100 FPS all the time on my GTX 1650, with zero stutters and freezes. I tested the game on my RTX 3070, as well. But I honestly think that we all know, how it turned out.
Just to show you how optimized this title really is, I ran the game on my RTX 3060 Ti, which is kind of a low-end RTX card. I ran the game on maxed-out settings with Ray-Tracing and DLSS on, and here is the video showing the results(skip to 04:05 in the video):
I was getting an average of 80 FPS, and the GPU usage was touching 99% all the time, which is a sign of good optimization. Getting 80+ FPS on Max Settings with Ray Tracing enabled, is actually quite impressive. I don’t recall a single game released this year, that was this optimized.
Overall, I would say, that F1 22 will run flawlessly for you if you have somewhat of a decent GPU. Even, if you have something like the GTX 1050 Ti or just the GTX 1050, then also you can get more than 60 FPS on low-medium settings.
If you think this guide has helped you then let us know in the comment section below. Also, if you are facing problems with the game then try checking out our other guides on F1 22. Who knows, you might end up finding a fix.
That’s all folks!
