F1 23 Driver Ratings Revealed!

F1 23 Driver Ratings

Players will be able to create their own F1 career as part of the 'My Team' game mode.

Electronic Arts, in partnership with Formula 1®, today released the launch-day Driver Ratings for EA SPORTS F1® 23, an official game of the FIA Formula One World Championship™ releasing on June 16.

Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc, George Russell, Lando Norris, Kevin Magnussen, Valtte ri Bottas, Nyck de Vries and other drivers from the 2023 grid participated in a ‘Guess the Rating’ challenge during their visits to Monaco and Barcelona and showed their reactions as they unveiled their ratings.

In order to calculate the launch day ratings, EA SPORTS compiled and analysed the drivers’ real-life results and performances from the 2023 Formula 1® season up to and including this year’s FORMULA 1 MIAMI GRAND PRIX 2023.

With the help of F1® experts, Anthony Davidson and Alex Jacques, to look beyond the pure data and separate man from machine, the studio has updated its algorithm to be more representative of a driver’s current form and less reliant on their legacy.

The dynamic ratings in the game’s My Team mode will update every few races, reflecting the action and drama on and off the track.

The dynamic ratings are broken into four categories alongside an overall score. The categories are:

Experience (EXP): This is based on the number of race starts a driver has over the course of their career

Racecraft (RAC): The driver’s ability to work their way through the pack and finish in a higher position than where they started

Awareness (AWA): The less time spent in the Steward’s room will help drivers here. Real-world punishments will impact the score in this category

Pace (PAC): Benefits those who get closest to the fastest qualifying and race lap times. A driver beating their teammate is also taken into consideration

Rating (RTG): The combination of the previous four ratings. This overall rating will go up and down throughout the season based on performance

“It is very compelling to see the passion, camaraderie and banter our dynamic Driver Ratings generate among Formula 1 drivers,” said John Merchant, F1® Brand Director at Codemasters. “This year, we have worked closely with our panel of experts to provide a better balance between well-seasoned drivers and those in the early to mid stages of their career, especially in terms of their experience rating. As ever we will be updating the driver stats throughout the F1 season to ensure that the game stays fully calibrated with the sport all the way through the season.”

F1 23 will feature the new Las Vegas street circuit.
