It is also the official video game of the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship. On PC, the game is available on Steam, EA Play/Origin, and Epic Games Store.

The biggest difference between F1 22 and the previous F1 titles is that the 2022 F1 title has been published by EA Sports. Codemasters are still holding the position of developers, though. 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.

In reality, the F1 Racing features Traction Control is designed specifically to keep the car and the driver safe on the tracks and especially during the cornering. The Traction Control controls the power which is sent to the steering wheel of the driver thus preventing accidental wheelspins.

But this option can be toggled, and many players intentionally turn it off to enjoy hardcore rage racing. There are three modes of traction control in the game, On, Medium and Off. You can also set it to medium and start before turning it fully off.

How to race without Traction Control in F1 2022

It can be pretty challenging to drive without traction control in f1 2022. You have to put in hours of practice if you want to master it. Firstly I would recommend you to start with the Time trial as it is one of the best modes not only to test your driving capabilities but also the tire temperatures and the wear are maintained properly. So that you can improve your overall driving skills at your own pace without having to worry about opponents.

Although we recommend you first start with the Medium TC Control in F1 2022. Setting directly off might make it tougher for you to even drive and practice properly. Set it to medium and practice and once you are comfortable to turn the TC off. You can try tracks like Monza and Red Bull Ring because they have one of the biggest traction zones in-game.

Once you are turning off the Traction Control in F1 you need to be extremely careful while driving. You need to be aware of the timings of reapplying the throttle just after taking a corner and especially during the slow exit ones. For example, if you are on higher speeds and gears accelerating just after taking the corner then you are fine, but if you are using a low gear then it will be difficult for you to accelerate quickly during the slow exit which throws you out of the track completely.

To wind it all up first practice with medium traction control on time trail modes. Try practising on different tracks until you get a hold of it. Make sure you invest enough time to learn the mechanics of driving without traction control because it is quite tricky and challenging to control your car, especially during slow exits.

So this was all about how to race without traction control in F1 2022.
