Guess who's on top? Electronic Arts

EA Sports F1 22 is coming this Friday, July 1. However, this early, we get a preview of what to expect as the launch-day Driver Ratings have been released. This is part of the My Team mode that gets updated every few races to reflect the action and drama happening on and off the track.

Before we take a look at the initial driver ratings, let’s first learn how they came up with it. As it turns out, developer Codemasters made changes to the algorithm. The stats now represent the current form of drivers, instead of relying on their legacy. The studio was assisted in this work by Formula 1 experts Anthony Davidson, David Croft, and Alex Jacques.

Ratings Categories

The dynamic ratings are divided into four categories alongside an overall score. These 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 helps drivers here.
    • Real-world punishments 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.
  • Overall Rating (RTG)
    • The combination of the previous four ratings.
    • This overall rating goes up and down throughout the season based on performance.
