F1 22 Driver Ratings REVEALED: Best and worst drivers unveiled for new Formula 1 game


F1 22 is just days away, and Codemasters has finally revealed the full driver ratings for the new game.

Who is taking top spot? Who's last? How will the only rookie on the grid fair?

Let's find out!

F1 22 Driver Ratings

Like in previous years, Codemasters is using four attributes to give the drivers an overall rating. They 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
