The difficulty scale in F1 22 is set to a range between 0-110. Moving up the difficulty makes the AI make harder to play against, but it’s important to know that each number falls into one of eight different difficulty categories. If you need an idea as to where each digit falls on the difficulty scale, here’s a quick explainer:

  • Very Easy: 0-19
  • Easy: 20-39
  • Medium: 40-59
  • Hard: 60-79
  • Expert: 80-89
  • Master: 90-94
  • Legend: 95-100
  • Ultimate: 101-110

Outside of traditional Grand Prix mode, players can also adjust the difficulty settings in Career mode, and at the Pause menu. In Career mode, make sure you are in the home menu. Click either Y (for Xbox) or Triangle (for PlayStation) at the menu. This will bring up the career settings options. Then, find the ‘Simulation Settings’ tab, and select it with A/X. Find the AI difficulty, and then tune it to your desired number.

If you enter the Pause menu, select the ‘Settings’ option, and then ‘Simulation Settings.’
