The Netherlands features one of the most challenging Grand Prix in F1 24. Winning from the third or fourth row is almost impossible, but if you use this F1 24 car setup, you’ll be able to overtake beyond the circuit’s only straight at the Dutch GP.

F1 24 features the official Formula One calendar, and after the summer break, the next stop in the Career Mode is the Dutch GP. This Grand Prix, held at Zandvoort, is unique due to the number of slow corners and just one main straight for overtaking.

F1 24: Best F1 24 Zandvoort setup

In F1 24, Zandvoort features all types of corners – high, medium, and low-speed. To ensure these don’t pose a problem during the race, we suggest a high aerodynamic setup to generate maximum downforce, allowing you to tackle each corner at the ideal speed.

Additionally, a balanced suspension with a firm front and a soft rear is key to excelling on corner exits. Lastly, we highly recommend using maximum engine braking to help mainly in the slower corners.

Best Dutch GP race strategy in F1 24

The best race strategy to complete the Dutch GP in F1 24 is to make two pit stops.

We suggest starting with a set of soft tires to handle the slopes and slow corners of Zandvoort effectively. If you can manage tire degradation, this set of softs should last until lap 20, where we recommend switching to the medium compound.

Finally, as you approach lap 45, you should consider whether it’s better to return to the red compound or use a second set of medium tires to finish the race.

How to improve in F1 24 Zandvoort

The best way to improve your performance at Zandvoort is by practicing in the F1 24 Time Trial mode. Here, you can take as many laps and as much time as needed to master this tricky layout.

If you’re wondering which corners or sectors are key in the Dutch GP, you definitely need to be cautious at Turn 8. Despite being on a slope, it may not seem like a big deal, but taking it at a higher speed can send you almost instantly into the barriers.

Additionally, Turn 13 is crucial in the Dutch GP as it leads into the longest DRS sector and the main straight. Tackling it correctly is essential for gaining positions on a circuit that offers few overtaking opportunities.

All in all, that’s everything you need to know about the Dutch GP in F1 24, including the best car setup and race strategy to dominate all corners. If you’re looking for an extra challenge in F1 24, we suggest disabling all controller or steering wheel assists.
