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

The Mexican circuit has always been one very similar to Baku or Monaco that I haven’t enjoyed overly much. Things are different in F1 24 as there seems to be a lot more grip and the track really flows this year.

Creating a car setup for this track is all about dialling as much rotation into the car as possible without it become unstable and hard to drive.

There are so many slow and tight corners from turns 4 and 5 to the double right hander of turn 6 and the tight and twisty stadium section. Being able to rotate the car well at slow speeds can really improve your lap times.

Aerodynamic setup

You may think the sheer number of slow-speed corners will result in a higher downforce car setup than I have recommended. I have set the front wing to 35 and the rear to just 22. Much like tracks such as Baku or COTA, Mexico has an incredibly long straight that limits how much downforce you can run.

I have set the wing angles low enough to be competitive down the long straight. More importantly, is creating a big gap between the front and rear of the car. This will allow the car to pivot well into the slower corners and remain responsive.

Transmission setup

For the transmission, I have set the on-throttle differential fairly high for Mexico. This track is dependant on slower-speed traction, so 60% may seem a little high. However, you actually have quite a lot of mechanical grip at this track, so you can run a higher on-throttle differential setup without encountering too much wheel spin.

If you do find yourself sliding out of the slower corners, first try to open up your steering on the exit. You can use a lot of the track and kerb around Mexico and this can help limit wheelspin. Alternatively, you can lower your on-throttle differential a little bit.

    I have then set the off-throttle differential to 55%. This is relatively high, but it is necessitated by the high engine braking of 80%. Higher engine braking setups require higher off-throttle differential setups.

    Suspension geometry setup

    For the geometry, I have kept everything far left. That means running the camber at its highest negative angle to give us great grip mid corner which is very useful through the fast 7 to 11 sequence.

    The lack of any toe will help reduce drag and increase our top speed along the pit straight, and will also limit tyre wear, which is a big problem at this track.

    Suspension setup

    When it comes to the suspension setup, responsiveness is key. I have the front suspension set high at 40 and the rear set to just 6. This, combined with anti-roll bars of 19 and 15, will result in a car that is very willing to change direction and go where you point it.

    This track is pretty smooth. However, you will want to attack the kerbs a lot, which leads to a slightly higher-than-liked ride height. Setting the ride height to 25 and 58 gives us a little leeway when riding up and over the kerbs and avoids bottoming out.

    Brake setup

    With the brakes, I’d recommend our normal approach of 100% brake pressure and 55% brake bias. Lockups aren’t too much of an issue, but you can encounter some rear locking at some corners, so 55% provides a good balance.

    Tyre pressure setup

    I did mention it earlier, but Mexico is punishing on tyres. There are some fast corners which stress the front tyres and plenty of slower corners that can wear your rear tyres. For this reason, I have maxed out all pressures other than the front right, which I have lowered to 28.5psi.

    And that will complete this car setup for Mexico in F1 24. This is a track that has grown on me a lot this year and is much easier to drive than in last year’s game. The main thing to really push your lap times is to utilise the whole width of the track. Using the kerbs and building in the safety net with the ride height can gain you a good amount of time.
