F1 24 is here, and if you’re looking to enjoy Codemasters’ latest while using a wheel, here are our suggestions for the best F1 24 steering wheel settings to use.

F1 24 pushes realism across the board. Whether it’s the stunning models of the drivers or all the lights and switches inside the cockpit, the game offers an authentic F1 experience that becomes even better by using a steering wheel setup.

With this in mind, here are our suggestions for the best F1 24 steering wheel settings to use across all platforms to help improve your performance on the track.

F1 24: Best steering wheel settings

Before we list our suggestions, it’s important to note that the best steering wheel settings for F1 24 can vary based on your wheel setup and manufacturer. Make sure to do a button test and try out the setting presets to get a feel for the controls. If something feels off, try out some of our suggestions:

Assists settings

For a balanced experience, use these Assists settings in F1 24:

  • Steering Assist: Off
  • Braking Assist: Off
  • Anti-Lock Brakes: On
  • Traction Control: Medium
  • Gearbox: Automatic
  • Pit Assist: Off
  • Pit Release Assist: On
  • ERS Assist: Off
  • DRS Assist: On

These Assist settings allow you have to more control over the car car with options like Steering and Braking Assist toggled off. We recommend starting with the Gearbox setting turned to Automatic and changing it up once you feel more confident.

Generic settings

  • MFD Car Setup Panel: Default
  • Overtake ERS Mode: Toggle
  • Adaptative Triggers: Medium
  • Logitech Trueforce Intensity: 100

Control Scheme settings

We recommend sticking with the default Control Scheme settings in F1 24 but feel free to switch things around until you find the layout that feels most comfortable. We do suggest changing Brake to the Clutch Pedal, and the Clutch to the Break Pedal, for ease of access.

Calibration settings

Calibration settings in F1 24
Calibration settings dictate how the handling and braking feel.

Here are our suggested Calibration settings for the best experience on your F1 24 steering wheel setup:

  • Steering Rate: 100%
  • Steering Deadzone: 0
  • Steering Linearity: 0
  • Steering Saturation: 0
  • Throttle Deadzone: 0
  • Throttle Linearity: 0
  • Throttle Saturation: 0
  • Brake Deadzone: 0
  • Brake Linearity: 0
  • Brake Saturation: 0

Since you’re using a steering wheel, there’s really no reason to change the Steering Rate so it’s best to leave it at default. If you tend to leave your foot on the pedal after braking, you can turn up the Brake Deadzone setting slightly.

By default, the Brake Linearity will be set to 25. We suggest dropping it to zero if the brakes feel a bit too stiff. You can also try to counter it by cranking up the Brake Saturation settings and keeping Brake Linearity at default.

Vibration & Force Feedback settings

Vibration and Force Feedback help increase immersion.
  • Vibration & Force Feedback: On
  • Vibration & Force Feedback Strength: 70
  • On Track Effects: 20
  • Rumble Strip Effects: 20
  • Off Track Effects: 20
  • Pit Stop Effects: 20
  • Wheel Damper: 18
  • Maximum Wheel Rotation: 360°

The Vibration and Force Feedback settings F1 24 refer to the feedback you can feel through your steering wheel as you zip around tracks. Most wheel setups have different power capabilities, which means that some will provide feedback in a way others don’t. Keeping this in mind, we landed on these settings that should feel good regardless of your setup.

Setting Vibration & Force Feedback Strength to 70 provides solid balance and lets you feel the feedback from what’s happening on-screen without getting too overwhelmed.

Just like previous editions, we’ve opted for 360° for the Maximum Wheel Rotation. But you can nudge it down slightly if turning doesn’t feel as responsive.

Those were our suggestions for the best F1 24 steering wheel settings. If you’re jumping into the game during early access, make sure to check out new features like EA Sports’ Dynamic Handling and the Challenge Career mode.
