After several years off the Formula One calendar, the Chinese GP returned to F1 24 with its traditional straights and unique corners. Check out the best F1 24 car setup to use in the Chinese GP.

The Chinese GP returns in F1 24 after being absent for four years. The Shanghai circuit is a favorite among fans, as it was the site of Michael Schumacher’s last F1 victory in 2006 and Daniel Ricciardo‘s last win for Red Bull in 2018.

If you want to repeat these milestones in F1 24, make sure to use this car setup and dominate the Chinese GP.

F1 24: Best Chinese GP setup

The Chinese GP features two long straights with DRS zones that are ideal for overtaking rivals, along with a fast Sector 2 consisting of high and medium-speed corners. The Shanghai circuit can put the lifespan of your tires at risk if you can’t manage them well.

To prevent this, we suggest keeping both the front and rear camber as flat as possible to take advantage of the top speed on the two lengthy straights. Additionally, we recommend a balanced aerodynamic setup to avoid losing valuable time in the slow corners of Shanghai.

Best race strategy for F1 24 Chinese GP

The best race strategy for the F1 24 Chinese GP is to complete the race by making two pit stops. The medium tyre reigns supreme on the Shanghai circuit, so we suggest starting the race with it.

Then, depending on race conditions such as position, yellow or red flags, or safety car, you can choose to either continue with a second set of mediums to extend your advantage and finish on the hard compound or do a long second stint on hards and switch back to medium tyres to end the race.

How to improve in F1 24 Chinese GP

The best way to improve your performance in the Chinese GP of F1 24 is to practice in Time Trial mode. There, you can lap the Shanghai circuit as many times and as long as you want until you master the Chinese layout.

To master the Shanghai circuit of F1 24, you need to focus on three crucial corners. First, the sequence between Turns 1 and 3 forms two slow hairpins at the start of the race. The exit from Turn 3 is critical to take the first short straight, which will determine if you gain or lose positions at the start.

Turn 8 is also important because it’s a fast corner where you need to adjust your speed midway and prepare for entry into the medium-speed Turn 9. This mid-corner adjustment often leads to mistakes, so practicing this is a must for the Chinese GP.

Finally, Turns 12 and 13 are, in my opinion, the most important on this circuit. They lead into the long straight in Sector 3, which, with DRS, is the best overtaking zone. Getting a good exit from these corners is key to gaining positions and preventing others from overtaking you.

All in all, that’s everything you need to know about the Chinese GP in F1 24, including the best car setup to dominate the Shanghai circuit. For more on the game, we suggest checking out our controller and steering wheel settings guides in order to get more realistic gameplay in F1 24.
