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

Australia is the next track on the F1 24 calendar, and it’s really good fun to drive. It combines elements from Bahrain and Jeddah, resulting in a fast and flowing track that tests your car’s willingness to grip during heavy cornering loads.

This car setup is designed for online and offline races and is not designed as a time trial setup. Its highlights are that it is lightning fast compared to the AI.

When testing this during a race, I actually had to increase my AI difficulty compared to Bahrain and Jeddah. It is very capable through all corners, with tyre wear on the car’s left being the biggest constraint.

Best Australia setup for F1 24

Below is our recommended Australian car setup for Melbourne in this year’s F1 24 game. The Australian track is a fast and technical circuit surrounding Albert Park Lake. This setup focuses on increasing minimum corner speed to deliver a lightning-fast car throughout a race. It was updated after the big update to F1 24 that changed how the cars handle.

Here is our recommended F1 24 Australia setup which has been designed for races, not time trial and has been created using a racing wheel.

Below is a run-through of our F1 24 Australia car setup for Melbourne.


Aerodynamic setup

Kicking things off, I’ve opted for an aerodynamic setup of 30 and 20. If this were a time trial setup, this gap would be much higher, but you really don’t want to increase these too aggressively during a race.

After the updated handling patch, I increased the front wing and decreased the rear wing slightly. This results in a slightly more downforce-orientated setup; however, we can mitigate some of the extra drag in other parts of our setup.

Transmission setup

For the transmission, I’ve opted for 35% on throttle. Most of a lap around Albert Park could benefit from this being higher, up towards 65-70%. However, the final sector of the lap starts to become trickier, the higher you increase this. 35% is a good setting, taking all corners into account.

For the off throttle, go with 60%. You don’t want to set this too low post-1.3 patch to avoid too much overrotation at the apex. One thing to really avoid around Australia is touching the inside kerb on turns 12 and 13; otherwise, your car will start to rotate.

Go with 70% engine braking, which, like our Bahrain and Jeddah setups, is much higher than before the patch.

Suspension geometry setup

I’ve set the geometry up with camber all the way to the left on both front and rear for the best mechanical grip. I’ve then set the toe out to 0.08 and toe-in to 0.24.

Typically, you’ll want both of these toe values to be pretty low, however, through the slower corners, the rear of the car can get a little bit twitchy, especially through the final corner. Increasing the rear toe to 0.24 goes some way towards keeping the rear of the car more stable.

Suspension setup

When it comes to the suspension, there is definitely a trend in F1 24 car setups, and that is pretty similar to last year. A stiffer front suspension and softer rear is the way to go, and since the update, you can setup the suspension a little more aggressively.

For this setup, go with 38 and 4, then 16 and 10 for the anti-roll bars. Set the ride height to 23 and 58. This more aggressive approach, compared to our pre-patch setup, is designed to keep your car on its toes and responding well.

Brake setup

Set the brake pressure as high as you feel comfortable with. After the update, I typically go all the way up to 100% with the pressure and keep the brake bias at 55% around Melbourne.

Tyre pressure setup

Rounding out this car setup, we have the tyre pressures. Your tyres will get hot around Albert Park due to the fast corners, with the rear tyres being more susceptible to overheating.

Set the rear pressures to maximum and lower the fronts to 27.5 and 28.5psi. The gap from left to right is to try and keep the front right tyre in the correct temperature window as this is the tyre that will cool fastest.

That finishes our Australian car setup for F1 24. This setup is one of my favourites so far as you can attack the track super aggressively without worrying about instability.
