A fan-favorite track, Shanghai returns to the Formula 1 calendar in the fifth round of 2024. The Chinese crowd now also has a home hero to cheer on every race, making the atmosphere even better than before.

Shanghai's range of long straights and tight corners means you need a good F1 24 setup for China, updated for the new handling patch.

Fans and drivers alike missed the Chinese Grand Prix during the pandemic. Now the Shanghai International Circuit makes its triumphant return, with both a sprint and feature race taking place in 2024.

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.

China requires a car that is both slippery down the straights but forceful through the high-downforce corners.

A 30 front wing and 25 rear wing achieves the speed while keeping the car pinned while cornering.

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 50%, and the off-throttle should be set to 35%. This will help turn the car through the trickier corners.

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 0.0 for both toe settings. This keeps the car more stable through the slower corner exits.


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

Shanghai's directional changes means you'll need 35 front suspension and 7 rear suspension.

Anti-roll bar sets how the car pitches during changes of direction. With the sweeping corners we are setting the anti-roll bars to 5 on the front and 3 on the rear.

The Ride Height should be set to 25 on the front and 60 on the rear, to help with top speed down the back straight and generating downforce for the slow turns.


China has a mix of long braking zones and sudden stopping points. For this, your Brake Pressure needs to be high at 95%.

It also helps if your braking bias is weighted more towards the front than usual. Setting the front to 55% provides the ideal balance.


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 will allow you to pull off the perfect overcut in Shanghai.
