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

Thankfully, Monaco is out of the way, and Canada is the next track that we’re creating an F1 24 car setup for. This is a fast circuit, not too dissimilar from the streets of Jeddah in many ways. Your car’s balance will be tested, whilst we try and maximise our mid-corner grip and corner exit speed.

The trick with a good F1 24 Canada car setup is to setup the car as loose as possible before the rear starts to become a problem. This style of setup will allow your car to rotate incredibly well into the fast chicanes allowing you to carry high minimum corner speeds.

The main problem with this style of setup is that as your tyres wear, the rear of the car can start to become a problem. Also, the long and slow turn 2 is the limiting factor with this style of setup. Too little rear end, and your car can easily over rotate on the exit. Managing this throughout a race can cost you a good few tenths a lap, whilst also increasing the wear on your rear tyres.

Best Canada setup for F1 24

Below is our recommended Canadian car setup for the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. This track is similar to Australia in that its a semi-permanent street track surrounding a lake. There are also very fast corner sequences, much like Australia which this car setup targets to produce a fast car for longer distance races. It was updated after the big update to F1 24 that changed how the cars handle.

Here is our recommended F1 24 Canada 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 Canada car setup.

Aerodynamic setup

I have set the aerodynamic setup to 33 and 24, which is a reduction over our pre-patch car setup, mainly at the rear of the car. The goal is to lower the rear wing aero as much as possible before we start to lose the rear end through turn 2 and the fast chicane of turns 8 and 9. The larger the gap between the front and rear aero, the more rotation you’ll experience.

Transmission setup

I have set the on-throttle differential low at 40%. This may seem strange for such a high-speed track. However, because we are playing with the limitation of rear grip, increasing this will make it much easier to break traction at the rear of the car under acceleration.

I then set the off-throttle differential low at just 25% for good initial corner rotation and went with an engine braking setup of 40%.

Suspension geometry setup

For the geometry setup, mid-corner speed is king around Canada. To achieve this, I’ve set the camber all the way to the left at -3.5 and -2.2. Even though this can harm tyre wear and reduce our straight line speed slightly, it’ll pay dividends through the fast chicanes.

I’ve set the toe at just 0.07 at the front and 0.10 at the rear. This adds some stability while keeping drag to a minimum. This will help us claw back some straight-line performance while keeping the car well-balanced through a whole corner sequence.

Suspension setup

Creating a responsive front end is key with our suspension setup, and an approach of 40 and 7 is a good way to do this. This style of setup is common throughout most of our F1 24 car setups.

I have set the anti-roll bars to 15 and 13. I would have liked them higher as they will yield more performance through the faster corners. However, turn 2 becomes increasingly more difficult, the stiffer you go with your ARB setup. If you are creating a time trial setup, increasing the ARBs to say 21 and 17 would be a good option to get more performance.

Then set the ride height to 24 and 57 which is unchanged from our original Canada car setup. You will be hitting some large kerbs, especially through turns 8 and 9, and its this chicane that is the real limiting factor with the ride height. Going much lower can cause instability over these larger kerbs.

Brake setup

With the brake setup I have found that 100% brake pressure works in almost all scenarios after the handling update. Then opt for a 52% brake bias which, much like our ride height, is the same as our original car setup. There are a fair few short and sharp braking zones where locking a front wheel is pretty easy to do. A more rearward brake bias helps prevent this.

Tyre pressure setup

For the tyre pressures, the rear tyres are the ones that will take the most punishment. The constant requirement for power out of the fast corners and the tyre slip that is required at most corners to rotate the car will build temperature fast at the rear of the car.

I have increased the rear tyre pressures much more than the fronts to combat this. To get them up to temperature during a race, go with 22.5psi on both front tyres and then 24.5psi on both rear tyres. This should yield relatively even tyre wear throughout a race, although the rears will still wear faster than the fronts.
