F1 22 Game Driver Ratings - Best Drivers Listed

F1 22 is one of the most awaited racing simulation games of the year. With the regulations in Formula One Aero changes and a new Rookie driver in the 2022 season, the game was expected to be a bit different this time and it is. Not only just the cars, but the driver ratings have also been quite different this time, Max Verstappen being the World Champion and with the addition of Zhou Guanyu the driver ratings are quite interesting this time.

The driver rating consists of different parameters which include, Experience, Racecraft, Awareness, Race Pace, and Overall Rating. These different parameters help to understand the best drivers listed in F1 2022. Here is the list of complete F1 22 Game Driver Ratings.

F1 22 Game Driver Ratings Parameters

Before listing the Driver Ratings, we need to understand what all the different parameters mean and how are those calculated.

Here is how all the parameters are calculated:

Experience

The experience is based on how many race starts a driver has compared to the record race entries.

Racecraft

Racecraft describes a driver's ability to work their way through the field to finish the race higher than where they started.

Awareness

Awareness rewards drivers who avoid the stewards' room. More severe errors on track cost more awareness points.

Race Pace

The Race Pace is based on the drivers who get closest to the fastest and qualifying times and those who have faster times than their teammates.

Overall Rating

The overall rating is a combination of all driver stats making up each driver's ability within the F1 22.
