Update: This setup has been created after the big handling patch.

Abu Dhabi is the final race in the calendar and is a track that has seen some exciting races in the past few years. The track layout changes that were integrated a few years ago have made this circuit much faster and lowered the lap time by over ten seconds.

This is a track that has gone from being tricky and slow in places to flowing really nicely and being a great end to the Formula 1 calendar.

Below is a video run-through of our Abu Dhabi car setup designed for races and career mode.


Aerodynamic setup

The aero setup for Abi Dhabi is much different from the setups we would have run if the track still included the slow chicanes that were removed a few years ago. This is now a much more low downforce track, allowing us to run wing angles of 37 at the front and 27 at the rear.

This approach provides good responsiveness, rotation, and high top speeds for the two long straights in the middle sector. You’ll find that this year, you have much better rear traction at this circuit allowing you to really push the car hard.

Transmission setup

For the transmission setup, go with an on throttle differential setup of 60%. Much like our aero setup, the updated track layout lets us run a more locked differential for better outright traction at higher speed.

Then opt for a fairly aggressive off throttle and engine braking combination of 40% and 80%. This works with the aerodynamic setup to provide very good rotation, especially into the slower corners such as turns 5 and 6.

Suspension geometry setup

We may be nearing the end of the tracks in F1 24, but it’s no surprise that our camber setup follows the same route as our other car setups. Setting both front and rear camber far left will provide the highest possible mid-corner grip.

For the toe, I have added some front toe at 0.05 and even more rear toe-in at 0.10. This helps us achieve stability and the correct amount of responsiveness from the car.

Suspension setup

With the suspension, I have gone with a really aggressive setup approach. This works well at this track as the track layout doesn’t test the car with bumps and high loads like many circuits do.

Go with 40 and 8 on the suspension setup and 20 and 15 on the anti-roll bar setup. This gives us a really responsive car that has very good mechanical grip mid-corner.

Then set the ride height at a rather high 27 and 59. You will be hitting a few kerbs around Abu Dhabi, and there is a nasty dip on the exit kerb of turn 1, and this leads us to setting the ride height ever so slightly higher than desired.

Brake setup

With the brake setup, I would recommend 100% pressure and 55% brake bias for good consistency throughout a lap.

Tyre pressure setup

For the tyre pressures, maximising all pressures will help somewhat with tyre wear and temperature build-up. Our aggressive geometry, transmission and suspension setups are all performance-focused, leading to increased tyre wear throughout a race.

Maximum pressures do help control this a bit and also help with our top speed by eliminating some friction and drag. You’ll also find that as the track cools throughout a race, tyre temperature build up becomes less of an issue.

This is the final track on the 2024 Formula 1 calendar. However, it isn’t our last car setup. There is the bonus track of Portugal, which is the next track we’ll be looking at creating a car setup for.
