F1 2020 Fanatec Wheel Settings (CSL DD & CSL Elite)

Looking for the best and most realistic Fanatec wheel settings for F1 2020?

If you’re driving on a Fanatec CSL DD and CSL Elite wheel you’ll need to make sure that you have the right settings in order to get the most realistic feeling.

That’s why we’ve researched and tested all the the different settings variations for F1 2020 and compiled them into this handy guide for you.

As you can imagine having proper wheel and FFB settings will make a pretty big difference to your drivng performance and overall lap time.

You’ll be able to be way more precise with your steering inputs and also make far fewer mistakes while pushing the car to the very limit.

So having said that, let’s dive right in!

Fanatec tuning menu settings

The first step to get the best wheel settings will require you to adjust the CSL DD and CSL Elite wheels from the Fanatec software dashboard.

That’s because the default settings are often not such a great fit for the F1 2020 game, and can cause your car to react in a fairly unpredictable way.

Here are our recommended tuning menu settings for your Fanatec wheels:

CSL DD Tuning menu

  • SEN = Aut
  • FF = 100
  • FFS = Peak
  • NDP = 25
  • NFR = Off
  • NIN = Off
  • INT = 4
  • FEI = 100
  • FOR = 100
  • SPR = 100
  • DPR = 100
  • BLI = Based on preference
  • SHO = 100
  • BRF = Based on preference

CSL Elite Tuning menu

  • SEN = Aut
  • FF = 100
  • SHO = 100
  • BLI = Default
  • DRI = -02
  • FOR = 100
  • SPR = 100
  • DPR = 100
  • BRF = Default
  • FEI = 080

Now that we’ve configured our Fanatec wheel, let’s move on to the in-game wheel settings of Formula 1 2020.

What are the best Fanatec FFB settings for F1 2020?

Our recommended F1 2020 Fanatec settings for the Fanatec CSL DD and CSL Elite are:

  • Steering deadzone = 0
  • Steering linearity = 5
  • Steering saturation = 0
  • Throttle deadzone = 0
  • Throttle linearity = 0
  • Throttle saturation = 0
  • Brake deadzone = 0
  • Brake linearity = 0
  • Brake saturation = 0

Vibration and force feedback settings

  • Vibration & force feedback = On
  • Vibration & force feedback Strength = 65
  • On track effects = 15
  • Rumble strip effects = 25
  • Off track effects = 25
  • Wheel damper = 5
  • Understeer enhance = Off

So as you can see all of the deadzones and linearity are set to 0, which will give you the most precise and responsive steering possible.

The saturation settings should also be turned all the way down, as this will make it easier to feel the smallest amount of grip loss around the corners.

You’ll also want to keep your vibration & force feedback strength somewhere between 60-70, as this will give you a good balance of realism and comfort.

As for the on track effects, we recommend setting them to around 15, as this will make it easier to feel the car reacting over the bumps.


So here were our recommended Fanatec settings for F1 2020.

Remember to test these first in a practice session before jumping straight into a race as they could take a while to get you used to.

So that’s it for our guide on the best Fanatec wheel settings for F1 2020.

Good luck and we’ll see you on track! 🙂
