F1 24 Australia Setup

The third round of the 2024 Formula 1 season takes us down under. Australia's challenging Albert Park in Melbourne plays host to the second street circuit of the year.

You need the best F1 24 setup for Australia to rule Albert Park, updated for the new handling patch.

Albert Park in Melbourne has hosted the Australian Grand Prix since 1996. As the name suggests, this is a street circuit that runs around the outside of Albert Park, encompassing the spectacular stadiums and stunning lakes.

Despite being a street circuit, this is a high-speed track, especially since the revamped layout introduced in 2022 increased the speeds down the back section.

Albert Park is still a punishing track. Gravel traps line the sides of the circuit on certain corners, ready to snare any car running wide. Therefore you need the best car setup to stay on track and out of the gravel.

F1 24's handling was criticized by F1 Esports drivers and seasoned content creators upon release. The game has since been patched, with this setup best suited to the game post-patch.

Aerodynamics

Australia's layout may be more open than before, but there are still many low-to-medium-speed corners in Albert Park. This means the car needs to be pushed down at the front end.

The numerous long straights also require the rear wing to be lower than the front to keep speeds up and reduce drag.

We've found that 30-20 for the aerodynamics gives a responsive front end, stable rear end, and good straight-line speed.

Transmission

The Transmission settings have changed slightly from F1 23, as we can now set the Engine Braking. This allows for the car to slow down more when off the throttle.

For Australia, you should turn this up to 100%, as this will help slow you through the high-speed chicane at Turns 9-10.

The Differential settings dictate how different the wheels spin when on and off of the throttle.

To have a more balanced setup, we've gone with 50% on throttle and 55% off throttle.

Suspension Geometry

Just like in previous games, you'll want the smallest angles for your toe and camber. This allows for maximum grip, albeit at the expense of tyre life.

So, the camber needs to be -2.50 on the front and -0.70 on the rear. The toe should be 0.00 on both the front and rear axles.

Suspension

The Suspension has three different areas, starting with the springs. This sets up how the car reacts to kerbs and other bumps.

You'll want to be very firm on the front axle with the full 41, but the rear should be much softer at 10.

It's a similar story for the Anti-roll bar, which sets how the car reacts to sharp direction changes through corners. The front needs to be firm at 15, with the rear slightly softer at 10.

Lastly, the Ride Height needs to be low to help with acceleration and speed. Setting this to 30-60 is the ideal compromise.

Brakes

There are several big stops in Australia, so you'll need strong brakes. The highest brake pressure you can apply without locking up regularly is 95%.

As for the brake bias, this should be 55% to the front to give the best braking balance.

Tyres

Maximizing the tyre pressures are the best option in F1 24. This will increase performance without sacrificing too much tyre life.

Setting 29.5 psi on the front and 26.5 psi on the rear works best in the Land Down Under.
