The in-game driver ratings for F1 2021 have been updated, with current championship leader and 100-time Grand Prix winner Sir Lewis Hamilton sneaking back ahead of Max Verstappen.
Lewis now sits at an overall score of 94, just one point ahead of Max’s 93. In particular, the incident at Monza’s Rettifilo chicane denting the Red Bull driver’s Awareness score by nine points. The overall score is calculated after combining four key areas: Experience, Pace, Awareness, Racecraft.
The new ratings take into account the Belgian, Dutch and Italian Grand Prix, but not last weekend’s Russian event. Within the My Team managerial mode, these driver ratings will be implemented, affecting rival on-track performance and driver market decisions – should you accept the option of updating the figures.
After a resurgent display in Italy, Valtteri Bottas has seen improvements in the Racecraft and Pace categories, resulting in an overall score of 91. The two Ferrari drivers of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jr. Are now tied on 88 while Mick Schumacher’s constant teammate one-upmanship means he rises to a heady 79 overall rating.
Recent tribulations following a superb debut victory in Hungary mean Alpline’s Esteban Ocon drops to an 84.
The next driver stat update will occur after the United States Grand Prix, and by then we should be able to race Imola in the game too. Let us know in the comments below what you think of the updated ratings.
