F1 24 offers a rather unique challenge at each track you visit. There are 25 circuits in the game, including the 24 tracks on the 2024 Formula 1 calendar and a bonus track, Portugal.

Each track varies considerably in characteristics. Some tracks, like Monza, Spa, and Silverstone, are very fast circuits that rely on good top-speed performance. Others, such as Monaco, Hungary, and Singapore, have a much greater number of slow corners, which benefit from a high-downforce car setup.

With a big array of track types, there isn’t a single car setup that works across all tracks. Instead, you will want to use a different car setup designed for the track you are racing at.

Why should you use car setups in F1 24?

If you haven’t been using car setups in F1 24, you may wonder how they affect the car. A car setup in any sim racing game, including F1 24, will drastically affect how the car handles. Changing your car setup can make your car faster, slower, more stable or harder to control.

A good car setup will focus on producing a car that is as fast as possible at a specific track, whilst also trying to make the car stable and consistent.

What is the difference between time trial and race car setups?

If you have started looking at changing your car setup, you may have come across people discussing the difference between a time trial car setup and a car setup designed for races. This is because there is a pretty big difference between the two.

Time trial car setups

Time trial is a game mode where drivers compete for the fastest single lap time possible. To do this, you’ll want a car that is as fast as possible and this can sometimes mean reducing the stability or consistency to make the car faster.

This can make a time trial car setup trickier to control. A time trial setup will often reduce the rear downforce and make the car more responsive, allowing it to rotate faster into a corner. This comes at the expense of there being more oversteer, making the car trickier to drive.

In the time trial game mode, tyre temperatures and tyre wear are also disabled. This means a time trial car setup doesn’t need to factor in tyre wear. Using one of these setups in a race can lead you to wear your tyres much faster than ideal.

Race car setups

A race car setup is designed slightly differently. While you should still try to ensure it is as fast as possible, you also need to factor in tyre wear and ensure the car isn’t too tricky to drive.

This can result in less outright single lap performance. A good race setup will almost always be slightly slower than a time trial setup across a single lap. However, it makes up for this throughout a race with much better tyre wear and consistency.

You will want your race car setup to be easier to drive so you don’t feel like you’re fighting to control the car through a long race distance.

You can read about the differences between time trial and race setups in more detail in this guide.
