Looking for the 2022 updated driver ratings to pick the best driver in your next F1 2021 race?
Since the release of F1 2021, the game has been a big hit among sim racing drivers from all over the world.
The popularity of F1 2021 has also led to some intense competition among drivers, as they all strive to get the best rating and stats possible.
In this quick guide, we’ll take a look at how the ratings have changed since last year’s game, as well as some of the 2022 updated stats from this year’s game.
What factors affect the F1 2021 game driver rating?
There are four main factors that affect the overall F1 game driver rating: Experience, Racecraft, Awareness and ultimately Pace. Each of these factors are then calculated with a weighted average to give each driver their overall game rating.
This is probably one of the most important factor when it comes to the driver rating. The more experience a driver has, the higher their rating will be.
This is how well a driver can handle their battles during races. This is mainly affected by the driver’s ability to make clean overtakes and avoid accidents.
This is how well a driver can anticipate and react to events that happen during a race. This includes things like making the right strategic decisions and reacting to safety car periods.
This is simply how fast a driver is in terms of pure lap time performance. This is affected by many things, such as car setup, tyre compound and of course, the driver’s own skill level.
So those are the four main factors that affect the F1 game driver rating. Now let’s take a look at the 2022 updated stats from this year’s game.
What are the 2022 updated driver ratings?
Hamilton 94 – Verstappen 93
The first thing that’s quite interesting is that despite Lewis Hamilton still sitting on top of the overall driver rating standings, the gap between his biggest rival, Max Verstappen, has shrunk from 94 vs 91 of 2021 to 94 vs 93 of 2022.
That’s quite a big shift considering that many thought that Lewis Hamilton’s 2021 second half of the season could have kept him with the same or even bigger rating gap.
On the other hand, with the fabulous championship title in the very last lap of Abu Dhabi has granted Max the rating improvement in terms of pace and racecraft to get him to 93, very close to Hamilton’s 94.
Sain 89 – Leclerc 89
In the list of the updated driver ratings for 2022, the two Ferrari drivers have exactly matched each other’s overall driver ratings.
Both of them improved in terms of pace, racecraft and awareness thus bringing the overall rating to a whopping 89
Despite that improvement, I’m sure they’re eager to close the gap from Hamilton and Max in the current 2022 season, especially after having seen the new Ferrari performing very well on track collecting podiums in the first couple of races.
So here were the 2022 updated driver ratings and stats from this year’s F1 game. As you can see, there has been some interesting changes, with Hamilton and Verstappen still leading the pack and Ferrari drivers closing the gap.
It will be interesting to see how these ratings change over the course of this year’s season as the competition between the drivers gets even more intense.
