Not only can drivers improve through rating updates, but also get downgraded. If a racer underperformed relative to their normal form, their in-game rating will also worsen. Codemasters lets the players individually decide whether or not they want the changes to apply in their game.
This is the complete list of the updated driver ratings after the Eifel Grand Prix:
Upgrade for Latifi, decreased rating for Albon
Rating changes in F1 2020 can be well illustrated by the examples of Nicholas Latifi and Alexander Albon.
Latifi has received the biggest increase in points this time with a bonus of seven points in his overall rating. This is due to several performances in Formula 1: He drove a solid race in the Italian Grand Prix albeit only finishing 11th. He placed ahead of his teammates of William’s Racing in several of the past events. He is therefore awarded with an increase in Experience, Racecraft, Awareness and Pace, resulting in an overall higher rating.
By contrast, Red Bull Racing’s Albon is confronted with an overall decrease of his rating by two points. He has therefore fallen four points in the last two updates. On the bright side, he has gained two points in Experience with the latest adjustments.
