It’s that time again, after two more races in the Formula 1 season, developer Codemasters has updated the driver ratings within the F1 2021 game.
There are four scored areas that are combined for one overall score, and they are based upon real-world performance to date up to and including the Turkish Grand Prix. Within the My Team managerial mode, these ratings will be implemented should you choose to update the game, affecting rival on-track performance and driver market decisions.
At the head of the field, Lewis Hamilton stays ahead of Max Verstappen, the gap growing overall by one point compared to the previous update at the end of September. Hamilton sits at a 94 overall, Verstappen 92 – the Red Bull driver’s Pace score dropping this time around.
One of the big movers and shakers has been Kimi Räikkönen, following his return after a Covid-19 case and finishing in the points at the Russian Grand Prix. Now at 87 overall, that’s a one-point increase.
Pierre Gasly and Fernando Alonso both drop after the recent races. Gasly’s Awareness score took a hit after his Turn 1 collision with Alonso at the Turkish Grand Prix, while Alonso falls too thanks to his contact with Mick Schumacher.
The driver rating changes follow some Halloween-themed content also arriving in the game this week plus Imola and the limited-time Red Bull Honda tribute livery last week. Are you diving back into F1 2021? Let us know in the comments below.
