F1 24 Qatar Setup: Best Car Settings For Losail

The Formula 1 season is drawing to a close when the paddock reaches Qatar, but the challenges ramp up in the desert. The extreme heat presents one of the toughest ordeals for drivers to face.

Keeping both the cars and drivers cool in the desert is a unique task for F1 teams. The best way to do that is with a good F1 24 Qatar setup, updated for the new handling patch.

Best F1 24 Qatar Setup

Qatar is home to one of the toughest races on the F1 calendar. The track layout is full of twists and turns, with the layout mainly designed for two wheels and not four.

If that's not bad enough, the circuit is built right in the heart of the Qatari desert. This leads to extreme heat, even during the night when the race is held. Many drivers suffered from dehydration during the 2023 race, with some even needing to be helped out of their cars.

Staying focused while suffering in the heat is a test no driver can really manage. Charging around the desert therefore is one of the hardest things an F1 driver must do during a race season.

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

Qatar's lack of straights besides the start/finish line means you need a lot of downforce to combat the corners.

Setting the front wing to 50 and the rear to 40 will pin the car to the track during the fast turns. This will also help keep the pedal down around the looser corners.

Transmission

F1 24 introduces a new engine braking option. This sets how much speed is scrubbed when easing off the throttle 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 35% and the off-throttle 50%. This generates extra turning force through the slower corners.

Suspension Geometry

In previous years, the meta was to set camber all the way right and toe all the way left. As it currently stands, that 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 the front toe. The rear toe can be set to 0.20 to help preserve tyre life.

Suspension

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

The quick transitions at Qatar require 35 front suspension and 22 rear suspension, which allows the car to change direction more quickly.

Anti-roll bar sets how the car pitches during changes of direction. Setting the anti-roll bars to 5 on the front and rear also gives the car flexibility.

Qatar's curbs mean Ride Height has to be lifted. 30 on the front and 50 on the rear will lift the car above the tricky curbs.

Brakes

Qatar is pretty consistent when it comes to braking, but your Brake Pressure needs to be high at 95% to get the car to slow.

It also helps if your braking bias is weighted more towards the front than usual. Setting the front to 55% provides the ideal 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 will see your rubber survive the heat of Qatar.
