Some F1 2021 Driver Ratings Revealed

Codemasters and EA revealed some F1 2021 driver ratings today. Kimi Raikkonen, Antonio Giovinazzi, Pierre Gasly, Yuki Tsunoda, George Russell and Nicholas Latifi all took part in the festivities by joking around and trying to guess their teammate ratings.

The drivers guessed ratings for experience, racecraft, awareness, pace and overall rating.

  • Experience Rating – Based off the number of races a driver has entered in their career
  • Racecraft Rating – Positions gained or lost in the race, compared with an average for that grid position
  • Awareness Rating – A measure of the driver’s ability to avoid incidents and penalties in the race. It drops the more frequently any penalty taken is due to the driver’s error
  • Pace Rating – A measure of the driver’s best lap times. Being closer to the fastest lap yields a higher pace score
  • Overall Rating – Experience, Racecraft, Pace and Awareness are calculated with a weighted average. A bias is applied to pace.

Officially, here are some of the F1 2021 driver ratings that were revealed.

  • Kimi Raikkonen – Overall Rating: 88
    • Experience – 99
    • Racecraft – 92
    • Awareness – 84
    • Pace – 86
  • Antonio Giovinazzi – Overall Rating: 78
    • Experience – 54
    • Racecraft – 81
    • Awareness – 81
    • Pace – 78
  • Pierre Gasly – Overall Rating: 90
    • Experience – 59
    • Racecraft – 91
    • Awareness – 99
    • Pace – 89
  • Yuki Tsunoda – Overall Rating: 80
    • Experience – 43

My Team Ratings will be continuously updated throughout the season to reflect the drivers’ real-world performances on the track. As a reminder, My Team is an owner-driver mode that allows players to create their own team, select a team-mate from the current F2 and F1 market and race as the 11th team on the grid. Players who purchase the digital Deluxe Edition will also receive seven iconic F1 drivers.

F1 2021 releases on July 16 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Players who pre-order the Standard Edition will receive the Braking Point Content Pack, a set of exclusive in-game items inspired by the fictional stars of the new story experience, and 5,000 PitCoins.

The F1 2021 Digital Deluxe Edition releases three days earlier on July 13. Along with playing the game early, other benefits include seven iconic F1 drivers for use in My Team, complete with customization content, 18,000 PitCoins and the Braking Point Content Pack.

F1 2021 supports Xbox Smart Delivery and PlayStation’s free upgrade when players switch to an Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5. For more F1 2021 details, check out the official website.

If you missed our F1 2021 hands-on preview earlier this month, make sure to give it a read here.

The second I fired up this year’s newest version of F1, the difference in the control system and the weight of the race car was dramatic. The difference in how the car felt and the “heaviness” of the car that came through the analog control system versus F1 2020 was pronounced. Not only could I feel the weight differential permeating the control system, but it was also extremely noticeable when controlling the car through multiple styles of turns and corners. The impact that this new inclusion creates while racing on the track is amplified in a way that will force veterans of the series to readjust and relearn how to control the race car.

  1. Somehow I find the arrogance of F1 drivers to be almost endearing. These guys... lol.
    Curious to see some more ratings. If Gasly has an 89 pace (deserved, he's been great this year) I am wondering what they give the Ferraris, Vettel, Ricciardo, etc.

    Man I wish EA would try NASCAR again.

    I know were off topic here, but I'm a bit surprised they haven't bought the guys making the Heat series yet. IIRC that series is dead in the water now might be a good one for them to swoop in grab and revive but it's probably too much of a mediocre mess for them to want to touch too.
    That being said, EA's involvement in the F1 series is pretty much irrelevant at this point. From my understanding this year's title has basically not much input from them, they've left Codemasters alone for this one basically. Makes sense since it was likely finished by the time that deal closed anyways. The fear of EA ruining the F1 series is still very much there IMO.

    Sorry for being off topic, Motorsport Games recently purchased the heat devs... They make more racing games than nascar... wonder if EA would buy them out to have their umbrella plus f1?

    :y11: Hopefully for whoever they pick to lead the F1 team is smart enough to leave the core experience of the game alone. Hopefully they're smart enough to expand on career and my team mode. Hopefully they don't spend all resources on online, e-sports, microtransactions, and some goofy card collection mode.

    Oh, interesting. I wasn't aware of that purchase. It would be great if EA realizes how great the driving/racing model is in the F1 series and leans on the Codies team to use it to develop a nascar racing game. I'm surprised they haven't gotten back to Nascar though, especially with the rise of e-sports racing. They'd be up against iRacing though in that space and on merit alone that's a tough hill to climb, but they've got the money to throw around to considerably reduce the size of that hill.

    Not really though. iRacing is PC only. EA Sports doesn't sell all of their games on PC, they do most though. Heat 5 probably sold very very low numbers on PC, granted Heat 5 wasn't great. But there's a huge market on consoles for a Nascar racer.
    iRacing as good as it is, is online only.
