F1 24 is out now, with the paddock ready to go racing.

Bahrain takes the honor of being the first race of the Formula 1 season. As such, it is the first stop on your globetrotting adventures in F1 24 Career Mode.

With that in mind, let's dive into the best F1 24 Bahrain setup for the Sakhir circuit, updated for the new handling patch.

Best F1 24 Bahrain Setup

The Bahrain Grand Prix has been held at the Bahrain International Circuit since it was built in 2004. The circuit has seen different configurations used over the years, but the one is use today is the original.

The only radical change came in 2014 when the race switched to being held at night. This was to protect against the blistering heat of the desert.

Bahrain has four main straights where overtaking is possible. Between these are tricky low—and medium-speed corners to test your skill and concentration. Tyres also burn fast here, so you need to protect your rubber as best as you can.

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.

Check out the full F1 24 Bahrain setup at the bottom of this article, or read the setup summary below:


  • Front wing: 30
  • Rear wing: 30


  • Differential adjustment on throttle: 60%
  • Differential adjustment off throttle: 65%
  • Engine braking: 100%

Suspension geometry

  • Front camber: -3.50
  • Rear camber: -2.2
  • Front toe-out: 0.25
  • Rear toe-in: 0.25


  • Front suspension: 41
  • Rear suspension: 1
  • Front anti-roll bar: 19
  • Rear anti-roll bar: 19
  • Front ride height: 20
  • Rear ride height: 50


  • Brake pressure: 95%
  • Front brake bias: 55%


  • Front right tyre pressure: 29.5 psi
  • Front left tyre pressure: 29.5 psi
  • Rear right tyre pressure: 26.5 psi
  • Rear left tyre pressure: 26.5 psi


Despite the multiple long straights in Bahrain, you will need some higher wing levels than you may think.

A 30 front wing and 30 rear wing will give you a good balance between cornering performance and straight line speed.

Transmission settings have a new option in F1 24 with the addition of a new engine braking option. This sets how much speed is scrubbed off when off the throttle and pushed back into ERS battery pack.

This may change as we discover more about the setting, but right now a maximum 100% setting is the best option.

The differential dictates how differently the rear wheels can rotate when on and off the throttle.

The on-throttle should be set to 60%, and the off-throttle should be more unlocked at 65%. This helps to counter some of the snappiness that can occur this year.

Suspension Geometry

In previous years you would set camber all the way right and toe all the way left. This year, as things currently stand, that creates some difficulty in car balance.

As a result, we have gone with -3.5 and -2.2 for the camber settings and 0.25 for both toe settings. This keeps the car more stable through the tricky turn 2 as well as the exits for turn 4 and turn 10 which are all treacherous this year.


Suspension is the most detailed section of your F1 24 setup and can be extremely personal to your driving style and skill level.

To keep the car on the track, we want to set a stiff front and loose rear. That means 41 front suspension and 1 rear suspension. This will allow for a more controllable rear end on exit. It is a bit extreme, so you can bring these values closer together if you have more confidence in corner exit.

Anti-roll bar sets how the car pitches during changes of direction. With a few sweeps here along with some tricky traction zones we are setting the anti-roll bars to a middleing level with 19 on both the front and back.

The Ride Height should be low, with 20 on the front and 50 on the rear, to help with top speed down the multiple straights.


There are some huge stops around Bahrain, and this is one of the hardest circuits on brakes currently in F1. As such, your Brake Pressure needs to be high at 95%.

For maximum initial stopping power, your braking bias needs to be weighted more towards the front than usual. Setting the front to 55% provides the ideal balance.


As will likely become a theme in F1 24, the higher the tyre pressures in the game, the better. This will increase your tyre performance without burning through the rubber too quickly.

With that in mind, the front pressures should be set to 29.5 psi and the rears at 26.5 psi.
