F1 24 patch notes (June 7)

Handling Advancements

Following continued conversation with drivers of all levels, the team are pleased to share the following gameplay adjustments based on feedback received:

  • Fixed tyre model response to rapidly changing slip angle/ratio
  • Adjusted slip curves for post-peak falloff, load sensitivity, and camber effects to work with the slip response fix
  • Tyre thermal model adjustments for high-temperature behaviour
  • ABS, Traction Control, and gamepad controls tuned to suit the new tyre model
  • Improved power unit balance in 7th and 8th gear
  • Gear ratios matched to 2024 race data
  • Revised suspension kinematics to reflect 2024 car designs
  • Performance of several teams adjusted to fit results and changes seen in the 2024 season up to and including the Monaco GP
  • ERS bug fix for MGU-K torque and new calibration of Hotlap mode energy use at all tracks

“We’ve made significant updates to our physics tech this year to set us up for long-term advancements in handling. As with any new system, we will continue to refine it by listening to our community, with further refinements throughout live service and beyond.’

“The changes set out to calm down the front end of the car giving a more realistic level of grip and turn-in capabilities. We’ve also made adjustments that will aid in the controllability of the car on throttle. These changes will be more prevalent for players using a wheel and without assists.”

Lee Mather, Senior Creative Director

In addition, AI/CPU-controlled racers have been re-tuned to accommodate for the handling changes made. Whilst you will notice more unpredictability from the AI when playing in Career mode, future patches will include further advancements to how the AI behave with one another throughout race weekends.
