Ed Straw’s verdict on Codemasters’ new F1 2020 driver ratings

Codemasters caused plenty of debate on social media when it released its F1 driver ratings, which will appear in the official game for the first time this year.

While the figures used in F1 2020 were based on data rather than opinion, and their main purpose is to feed a more structured driver market than was the case in F1 2019, that doesn’t stop them receiving plenty of interrogation!

Our F1 journalist Edd Straw takes a closer look at the numbers, working out which ones are accurate and which drivers can genuinely feel they’ve been hard done by. What do you make of the ratings? Let us know in the comments!
