Motorsports and Formula 1 fans have been eagerly awaiting F1 Manager 2022, which will be released on August 30. As we’re getting closer to the release date, new official information about the game continues to be published by the developer Frontier Development.
F1 Manager 2022 has already offered so many detailed features to Formula 1 fans. But, apparently, much more features are on the way. Lastly, Frontier Development announced the driver ratings, which will help you to recruit your team.
Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are the two best drivers, according to these driver ratings, which were created after weeks of work. So, let’s check out the driver ratings, how these ratings are determined, and the benefits of these ratings.
How Does F1 Manager 2022 Driver Ratings Work?
Every driver will be rated out of 100 like in the Fifa games. These will be overall ratings, and they will be the first thing you should look at while hiring a driver.
There are also different attributes of drivers that contribute to these overall ratings, such as cornering, braking, and consistency.
Besides drivers, the staff, like Race Engineer, Head of Aerodynamics, and Technical Chief, will have overall ratings too in F1 Manager 2022.
If you’ve ever played a managerial game before, like Football Manager, you can understand the logic of these attributes and overall ratings easily.
If a driver’s smoothness and control attributes are high, this means that the driver is good at the management of tires. Or, if a driver’s overtaking and defending attributes are high, this means that the driver is capable of winning on-track battles for position.
Meanwhile, a staff who has a good overall rating can help you to gather more accurate data and confidence with the car.
Don’t forget that the drivers and staff will gain experience as you progress in the game. This progression and gained experience will affect the drivers’ and staff attributes positively. In general, the more successful your results, the more your drivers and staff will be able to develop.
Even the pit crew has ratings in the game. The higher ratings for the pit crew mean better and faster pit time, which is so important during the race.
F1 Manager 2022 All Driver Ratings
As we mention, every driver has an overall rating in F1 Manager 2022. This means that there are ratings for the current F1 grid, teams’ reserve drivers, and drivers from the current F2 and F3 line-ups.
According to the ratings of the game, the strongest drivers will be Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, who have 90 points out of 100.
Charles Leclerc stands out as the third strongest driver of the game with 88 points, while Carlos Sainz, Sergio Perez, and Valtteri Bottas have 87 points.
