Driver ratings increase
A few drivers have seen a bump in their rating in this update. Let’s look at the winners so far.
Max Verstappen – 91 (+1)
An unexpected win at Silverstone coupled with regular splits of the dominant Mercedes team has shown Max’s true pace.
Verstappen’s pace has seen a two-point increase, though his experience has gone down two as well. Meanwhile his awareness is up one, creating that 91 overall rating.
Lando Norris – 81 (+2)
The Twitch superstar and talented youngster Lando Norris gets a +2 to his rating.
A maiden podium in the first race of the year coupled with several amazing overtakes sees Lando get upgrades across the board. His experience is up two, while his race craft has improved one.

He’s also got a huge +6 to his awareness and +4 to his pace.
Pierre Gasly – 82 (+2)
Another star of the 2020 season has been Pierre Gasly. The AlphaTauri driver has been highly impressive with Q3 appearances and points finishes.
He’s got a +2 to experience, + 3 to awareness, and +4 to pace. However, his race craft is -1.
Daniel Ricciardo – 88 (+1)
The Honey Badger has continued to look like a race-winner stuck in a midfield car.
The Aussie got a +1 to experience, pace, and awareness, but has lost one on his race craft.
George Russell – (+1)
The young Brit is another that has impressed. A string of Q2 appearances showed off not only Williams’ improved pace but also Russell’s talent.
He gets a +4 on awareness and +2 to pace and experience. A few race mistakes sees him get -4 for his race craft though.
Charles Leclerc (+1) and Lance Stroll (+1) have also seen increases.
Driver ratings decreases
It’s not all going up though. Who has had a tough start to 2020?
Nicholas Latifi – 62 (-2)
While Russell has impressed, Nicholas Latifi has struggled in the Williams.
Several practice spins and his inability to challenge Russell sees Latifi get a big -15 to his awareness. However, he is +13 in experience, +2 in race craft, and +1 in pace.
Sebastian Vettel – 88 (-1)
The four-time World Champion has really struggled this season. A good showing in Hungary was undone by a spin at Silverstone, while his relationship with Ferrari is crumbling.
Sebastian Vettel has lost two on his pace and one from his race craft, while gaining one on experience.
Alex Albon – 77 (-2)
A potential race win in the first Grand Prix of the year ended in tears after a clash with Lewis Hamilton. Since then Albon’s performances have been rocky.
He’s got +2 to experience and race craft, but -6 to awareness and -3 to pace.
Daniil Kvyat (-1), Sergio Perez (-1), Antonio Giovinazzi (-1), and Kimi Raikkonen (-1) have also seen decreases.
