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

Hungary is one of the most difficult circuits in F1 24. It contains many technical corners and a very tight and narrow track in places. This circuit really is reminiscent of Monaco in that it rewards a really high downforce car setup, and overtaking is near impossible other than into the first corner.

Best Hungary setup for F1 24

Below is our recommended Hungarian car setup for the Hungaroring in F1 24. This track is incredibly tight and technical and isn’t too dissimilar to tracks such as Monaco. Our car setup prioritises high downforce and stability allowing you to push your car at every corner. It was updated after the big update to F1 24 that changed how the cars handle.

Here is our recommended F1 24 Hungary 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 Hungary setup.


Aerodynamic setup

As mentioned, Hungary requires an incredibly high downforce car setup, so it’s no surprise that I’ve set the front wing aero to 50 and the rear wing to 40. Having an offset of around 10 points is beneficial in Hungary to promote better rotation.

This isn’t the case with our F1 24 Monaco car setup, as that circuit is so reliant on rear stability and just having as much downforce as possible.

    At the Hungaroring in F1 24, the best aerodynamic setup approach tailors the car to responsiveness and rotation.

    Transmission setup

    With our transmission setup at Hungary, we have to focus more on not spinning the rear wheels when accelerating from slow speeds. I’ve set the on throttle differential to 55% which provides good drive out of the faster turns while managing tyre slip and wheel spin at slower speeds.

    Then go with 40% off throttle differential and 60% for the engine braking. You can’t be too aggressive with these values at this track as the Hungaroring really tests your car’s stability.

    Suspension geometry setup

    With the suspension geometry setup, I have once again set the camber all the way to the left for the best mechanical grip mid-corner. I’ve lowered the front toe right to its minimum and set the rear toe-in to 0.05 for a little bit of added stability.

    Suspension setup

    The suspension setup is a little less stiff than at some other tracks in F1 24. I have set the suspension to 36 and 6, which is still plenty stiff enough. However, it is tailored a little more towards stability and driveability. I have kept the anti-roll bar setup fairly high at 16 and 13 to keep the car planted during the fast direction changes.

    Then, I set the ride height to 25 and 55. This is high enough to allow you to attack the track and the kerbs. You can even really bounce over the high kerbs at the chicane to shorten the corner a little bit. Just be careful not to touch the inside kerb at some corners, such as turns 1 and 11, as these can destabilise your car’s balance.

    Brake setup

    Opt for a brake pressure setup of 100% for maximum braking performance and a brake bias of 54%. Generally at slower tracks like Monaco and Hungary, a more rearward brake bias is preferred as it can be easier to lock a tyre at slower speeds. Moving the bias rearward helps prevent this.

    Tyre pressure setup

    The tyre pressures set to 27.0 and 27.5psi at the fronts help manage tyre temperatures and wear. Setting the rear pressures to their maximum will ensure the rear tyres don’t overheat or wear too fast.

    Overall, this car setup follows a similar trend to most of our F1 24 car setups so far, with a slightly softer edge. Hungary really is a track where consistency and balance are crucial, so making this setup slightly less aggressive than others can help you maintain control throughout a longer race distance.
