Teammates of the Formula 1 paddock came together to guess their driver ratings in the newest game in the F1 series by Codemasters. Included of course in the video are the final driver stats.

An Explanation of the Stats​

These stats are dynamic, meaning the game’s My Team mode will update every few races, reflecting the action and drama on and off the track.

For the first time, Codemasters has changed the algorithm, so the stats are more representative of a driver’s current form and less reliant on their legacy. Formula 1 experts Anthony Davidson, David Croft, and Alex Jacques have also collaborated with the studio to look beyond the pure data and separate man from machine.

The launch day ratings are compiled up to and including this year’s FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DE MONACO 2022. The dynamic ratings are broken into four categories alongside an overall score. The categories are:
  • Experience (EXP): This is based on the number of race starts a driver has over the course of their career
  • Racecraft (RAC): The driver’s ability to work their way through the pack and finish in a higher position than where they started
  • Awareness (AWA): The less time spent in the Steward’s room will help drivers here. Real-world punishments will impact the score in this category
  • Pace (PAC): Benefits those who get closest to the fastest qualifying and race lap times. A driver beating their teammate is also taken into consideration
  • Rating (RTG): The combination of the previous four ratings. This overall rating will go up and down throughout the season based on performance
“Now a mainstay for other EA SPORTS titles, our dynamic Driver Ratings continue to stir the drivers' emotions, and it’s great to see the camaraderie and banter between teammates,” said Paul Jeal, F1 Senior Franchise Director at Codemasters. “Our new panel of F1 experts will work closely with us to ensure F1 22 reflects what happens on the track, and we know the updates will lead to even more debate over the course of the season.”

The F1 22 Driver Ratings are a key element of My Team, the driver-owner game mode. New for 2022, My Team now includes three starting points: Newcomer, Midway Challenger, and Championship Contender, allowing players to decide if they want to work their way up from the bottom or go for the win straight out of the gate.

F1 22 will release July 1, 2022, for PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin and Steam. Players can pre-order the digital-only F1® 22 Champions Edition for additional content and three days of early access.

Are there any surprises for you in the ratings? And more importantly, will you be getting F1 22? Let us know down in the comments below.

The experience stat serves what porpose? Give a boost to old timers?
Doesn't seem enough to shape a driver, if i had my way we would have:
Pace-As it says
Consistency-How often the guy oscilates
Aggression-How likely he is to dive bomb or try to hold the outside line basically.
Defense-How much he moves to defend
Safety-How likely he is to crash, both with others and alone.
 
Well, this ranking is not going to make it easy for me to choose my favourite driver.

Where are the doping indicators, the statistics of consumption of Red bull before the start and champagne at the finish.

The overall rating is irrelevant, for how good a driver actually is in the race. Experience does make sense because it helps you develop the car faster

Basing this linearly in number of races the guy has competed in is wrong.
Rating his level of tech expertise would suit this better.
