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

Belgium is the final race before the summer break after the British and Hungarian Grand Prix. It is a fantastic circuit to round up the first half of the year, and thanks to its high-speed, old-school nature, it is one of the best tracks to drive in F1 24.

Best Belgium setup for F1 24

Below is our recommended Belgium car setup for Spa-Francorchamps in F1 24. Spa is a track that tests your car’s mechanical cornering grip while pushing you to use a low-downforce car setup. This setup was updated after the big update to F1 24 that changed how the cars handle.

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

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


Aerodynamic setup

Spa is certainly up there with tracks like Monza that require a car with a great top speed. You’ll be pushing over 200mph at the end of the Kemmel Straight, and almost the entire final sector is taken at full throttle. With this in mind, running a low-downforce car setup is crucial.

I have opted for a setup of 18 for the front wing aero and just 4 at the rear. The reworked Spa track is incredibly fluid to drive, and while it does test your mechanical grip through the fast corners, rear downforce is never truly an issue.

    You could, in fact, lower the rear downforce even closer to 0 if you feel the car isn’t too hard to control. The front wing of 18 is much more important than the rear, as you don’t want to suffer from understeer, which can harm your mid-corner speed a lot.

    Transmission setup

    There aren’t too many slow corners where traction is an issue around Spa, other than the final chicane and the first corner. This lets us run a higher on-throttle differential setup of 70% without too much worry of the car feeling loose.

    I’d suggest lowering this manually via your MFD on the approach to the final chicane and increasing it back up after turn 1. This can make it slightly easier to accelerate without spinning your rear wheels through the slower corners.

    I’ve then gone and set the off-throttle differential to 35% and the engine braking to 70%. This approach gives us maximum ERS recovery each lap and great deceleration. This combination provides very good deceleration without the rear of the car feeling unstable under heavy braking.

    Suspension geometry setup

    Spa-Francorchamps is a track all about minimising drag and maximising mechanical grip. This leads to only one outcome, and that is to run the camber all the way to the left combined with minimal toe.

    Suspension setup

    The fairly aggressive trend follows to the suspension setup. Setting the suspension to 40 at the front and 5 at the rear and pairing this with an anti-roll bar setup of 20 and 16 means your car will be pretty stiff. This is great for carrying higher speed through corners such as Les Combes and Pouhon.

    I have lowered the rear anti-roll bar for better stability, which helps eliminate any snap oversteer. With this stiff suspension setup, we can run a low ride height of 24 and 56. This could be even lower. However, I have included a buffer as you can bottom out if you get up and over some kerbs, such as the outside kerb on the final part of Les Combe.

    There are some kerbs to avoid around Spa, mainly the inside kerbs of turns 14 and 16, as these can start to rotate your car.

    Brake setup

    With the brake setup, 100% brake pressure is a must to slow your car from high speed into the chicane. Go with a brake bias of 55%. We are running the off throttle diff relatively low and the engine braking pretty high which means we have to move the bias slightly further forward. Even at 55%, there is almost zero chance of locking a wheel.

    Tyre pressure setup

    I round out this F1 24 Belgium car setup with tyre pressures set to maximum. The rears will heat up quicker than the fronts, and if you struggle for warm up on the harder tyre, you can lower the front pressures by 1 or 2psi.

    This track has seen a big change in F1 24, with parts of the track becoming narrower and wider, and a lot of the kerbs being reduced in width. With this car setup, you can be incredibly smooth with your driving style around Spa leading to good consistency, and hopefully a good race result.
