F1 2020 Controller Settings

That’s why we’ve spent quite a bit of time researching and testing all the different variations to finally share with you our most recommended ones.

So if you’re really serious about becoming the best F1 driver out there, then make sure to check out our list below.

Can you play F1 2020 with a controller?

Yes, you can absolutely play F1 2020 with a controller but you’ll need to adjust your settings properly to avoid making mistakes and losing precious time with your driving.

Is F1 2020 good with a Controller?

Yes, it is. Even though a controller may not be as fast as using a Fanatec or Thrustmaster steering wheel, you can still get some pretty fast lap times if only you use the right settings.

In fact, the best way to find that is to actually experiment with different calibration and sensitivity settings until you find the right ones for you.

What assists should I use for racing F1 2020 with a controller?

Assists can help you massively when using a controller and here are the ones we recommend you to use:

  • Gear Shift = Automatic
  • Traction Control = Full

We generally suggest setting the gear shift to automatic since you won’t really have the time to shift properly when racing with a controller in F1 2020, but if you wish to add them then that’s fine.

Recommended F1 2020 controller layout

After trying out different setups, here’s the best F1 2020 controller layout that has been working for us using an Xbox One controller:

  • Throttle = LT

As you can see, the LT-RT triggers are used for acceleration and braking while the left and right sticks are for steering input.
