Driving in F1 24 with a controller offers an incredible experience, but it can be enhanced further with the best settings. Here are the ideal controller settings for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC to maximize your gameplay.

Jumping into an F1 game always requires having the best settings possible to gain a notable advantage over your competitors when controlling your car, and F1 24 is no exception.

That’s why we’ve compiled the best controller settings on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC so you can destroy your rivals on the track in F1 24.

Best F1 24 controller settings for PlayStation, Xbox & PC

Whether you’re a new or returning player, here are the best controller settings on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC in F1 24.

Assist settings

The Assists will help you out when jumping on F1 24 for the first time.

Here are some Assists values recommendations if you’re looking for a balanced experience 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

While the Assist settings will depend on your in-game level, the values above will help you have a complete yet balanced experience in F1 24. Highlights include the Steering and Braking Assist Off allowing you to move conformably, combined with Medium Traction Control to make it less likely for the car to lose control.

Then, the Gearbox in Automatic is great for learning when to shift up and down the gears, and once you’re confident, you could swap this to Manual or even Manual and Suggested Gear, with the latter letting the game provide you a recommended Gear you should use.

With the Overtake ERS mode returning, we chose to turn the ERS Assist Off allowing you to change the mode throughout the race and take advantage of the overtaking modes. During the race, this will allow you to set it to None or Medium to charge the battery and have it available when needed.

Generic settings

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

Control Scheme settings

The Control Scheme changes in F1 24 are great for tweaking feature values mid-race easily.

Our recommendation is to keep the Control Scheme settings by default. However, there are a few tweaks you can make to access key features with ease during a race.

Here are our optional recommended Control Scheme changes:

  • Unbind the Look Forward, Look Back, Look Right, and Look Left buttons. Set a comfortable button for the Look Back option.
  • Head to the MFD Shortcut section and assign the Left Stick (←) to Brake Bias Increase and the Right Stick (→) to Brake Bias Decrease. Also, set the Up Stick (↑) movement to Differential Increase, and the Down Stick (↓) movement to Brake Bias Decrease. 

Calibration settings

Calibration settings noticeably improve F1 24’s handling feeling.

To achieve the best possible performance and improve F1 24’s handling, you will need to properly calibrate the controller. Here are the best controller Calibration settings in F1 24:

  • Steering Rate: 125%
  • Steering Deadzone: 0
  • Steering Linearity: 40
  • Steering Saturation: 30
  • Throttle Deadzone: 0
  • Throttle Linearity: 0
  • Throttle Saturation: 0
  • Brake Deadzone: 0
  • Brake Linearity: 0
  • Brake Saturation: 0

Due to prolonged use, controllers may degrade in performance over time. Therefore, when adjusting the Deadzone settings, use the ‘Test Buttons’ feature to ensure your sticks and buttons are functioning properly

To do this, you’ll need to flick the stick to either side and press the buttons and the value should return to 0. If this doesn’t happen, then be sure to increase the Deadzone until the values return to 0 after testing the button or stick.

As for the Steering Linearity and Steering Saturation, this will provide you with a smoother steering avoiding harsh movements. Also, if you choose to avoid Assists, make sure to hit the brake and throttle smoothly when entering and exiting corners, as this will avoid any traction spins.

Vibration & Force Feedback settings

If you want to feel the game as much as possible, the Vibration and Force Feedback will help you out.
  • Vibration & Force Feedback: On
  • Vibration & Force Feedback Strength: 150
  • On Track Effects: 75
  • Rumble Strip Effects: 30
  • Off Track Effects: 30
  • Pit Stop Effects: 50
  • Wheel Damper: 50
  • Maximum Wheel Rotation: 280°

The Vibration & Force Feedback settings in F1 24 will let you feel the interaction with your surroundings while driving through the controller. That’s why we chose to maximize the value of Vibration & Force Feedback Strength and adjust other settings to levels that ensure they don’t distract you while racing, yet still share key information about the car’s performance.

As for the Maximum Wheel Rotation, given we are playing on a controller, the best setting is to reduce this by 280 degrees, as this will prove more responsive and precise when taking turns in the game.

There you have it, that was everything you need to know about the best controller settings in F1 24, allowing you to dominate the new EA Sports Dynamic Handling, as well as the updated tire and aerodynamics models.
