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

The Baku street circuit is an incredibly technical track with one monster-long straight. This straight really affects our car setup and limits just how much aerodynamics we can set.

At Baku, you’ll find a range of 90-degree corners, combined with a few more technical sections as you near the end of the lap. Rear traction, responsiveness, and rear stability are all incredibly important.

With all of those elements to weigh up, I’m going to show you our recommended Azerbaijain car setup for F1 24.

Below is a video run-through of our F1 24 Baku setup.


Aerodynamic setup

Starting with the aerodynamic part of our car setup, I have set the wings at 28 and 15. There really isn’t the perfect setup here, as too much aero will make you faster through the majority of the lap but incredibly slow down the long pit straight which is really the only place to overtake.

If you opt to lower the wings, you can start to keep up with the AI in a straight line, but you’ll lose performance through the rest of the lap. I’ve settled on 28 and 15 which is a balance of the two options. This isn’t the fastest option when league racing or putting in time trial times. For those scenarios more wing angle is preferrable.

    This approach will also make you slower than the AI in a straight line, meaning you’ll need to use DRS and ERS to execute overtakes. You can lower both front and rear wings by 2 to 5 clicks when heading into a race.

    Transmission setup

    The transmission setup is a bit easier to settle on. I’ve gone with 60% on throttle differential which gives you good traction through the medium and high speed corners. Slow speed traction can be an issue as your tyres wear, so you may want to lower this a touch as you progress through a race.

    Then go with 40% for the off throttle differential and engine braking setup. This prevents our car from over rotating which can be a problem through some of the 90 degree turns.

    Suspension geometry setup

    For the geometry, our usual approach of left, left on the camber remains for Baku. Then add some toe to both the front and rear of the car. Go with 0.1 and 0.13 degrees. This gives us a bit more responsiveness that is lacking from our aero and transmission setup, and the toe-in at the rear helps with stability and getting the power down.

    Suspension setup

    I have softened our car compared to our usual F1 24 car setups for Baku. Go with 34 and 7. This is due to the large kerbs that you have to attack to be fast. The large apex kerbs can really unsettle your car, so this softer approach allows you to ride them a little better.

    Then opt for relatively stiff anti-roll bars of 15 and 12. This ensures you don’t encounter too much body roll through the faster corner sequences. And finally, opt for a pretty low ride height of 22 and 55. This should be high enough for the majority of the circuit, but feel free to raise it a couple of clicks if you really like to hit the kerbs hard.

    Brake setup

    For our recommended brake setup, I have opted for 100% pressure and a forward bias of 56%. This gives you good stopping power and stops the rear of the car rotating on you, which can happen at a few places.

    Tyre pressure setup

    Finally, our front tyre pressures are low as they do suffer from not getting up to temperature. I’ve opted for 23.5psi and 22.5psi for our front tyres. Then I’ve kept the rear tyre pressures at maximum to keep our drag low whilst managing the tyre wear.

    Baku really isn’t one of my favourite tracks in F1 24, however, this year around, it is a much more enjoyable circuit. Last year, the car was incredibly hard to control around this street track, however, with this car setup, things are a bit more enjoyable.
