F1 24 Japan Setup: Best Car Settings For Suzuka

F1 24 Japan Setup: Best Car Settings For Suzuka

The fourth round of the 2024 Formula 1 season sees us heading to Japan. The legendary circuit of Suzuka is one of the best in F1.

You'll need a good F1 24 setup for Japan, updated for the new handling patch.

Ask anyone to name an iconic race track, and chances are they'll say Suzuka. Home of the Japanese Grand Prix since 1976, besides a brief gap between 2006 and 2009, Suzuka helped bring motor racing to Japan.

With its fast transitions and lack of straights, Suzuka is a challenging circuit to master. That's before you throw in the world-renowned esses and of course the infamous 130R corner for good measure.

Formula 1 heads to Japan a little earlier than usual for the 2024 season. Instead of an autumn, race, this year sees the cars charging around in spring. This does change the track conditions slightly, so you'll need a setup to adapt.

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 Japan setup at the bottom of this article, or read the setup summary below:


  • Front wing: 30
  • Rear wing: 25


  • Differential adjustment on throttle: 50%
  • Differential adjustment off throttle: 50%
  • 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: 30
  • Rear suspension: 20
  • Front anti-roll bar: 4
  • Rear anti-roll bar: 3
  • Front ride height: 25
  • Rear ride height: 55


  • 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


Suzuka's twistiness unsurprisingly commands high wings to maximize downforce. However, you also need to be slippery down the back straight.

A 30 front wing and 25 rear wing will keep you pinned to the track throughout the switchbacks and around 130R, while also maintaining speed on the rare straight sections.

A new transmission settings option and a new engine braking option are available in F1 24. This option sets how much speed is scrubbed off when the throttle is released and pushed back into the 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 50%. This will help turn the car through the slow-speed sections.

Suspension Geometry

In previous years you would set camber all the way right and toe all the way left. However, this creates some difficulty in car balance this year.

As a result, we recommend -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.

Suzuka commands a stiff front and loose rear, which means 30 front suspension and 20 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 4 on the front, and 3 on the rear.

The Ride Height should be on the low side, with 25 on the front and 55 on the rear, to help with top speed down the back straight.


Suzuka has some heavy braking zones, particularly the hairpin and the final chicane. 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 therefore is best for the long stints in Japan.
