Notes from your favorite pilots
Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen (95 points) are logically in pole position in the ratings given by Codemasters. Here are the explanations of this new system, introduced this year. First of all, the main score is divided into 4 sub-parts: experience (the number of races contested in a career), racing intelligence (based on a driver’s ability to gain positions on the track in relation to his place on the starting grid), prudence in the race (based on a driver’s ability to avoid accidents) and pace (based on the driver’s pure speed, both in the race and in qualifying) . Example, Daniel Ricciardo driver for the McLaren team, has an overall score of 90. After several seasons in F1, he begins to have experience, his score is 80. In Racecraft, he has a score of 94 then in awareness 91. And to finish his speed, with the note of 88.
These pilots will be available in “my team” mode, it is a game mode that allows you to create your own team by choosing your logo, but also your engine manufacturer and your future teammate. However, each pilot has a different price, everything depends on his score and the moment in the season. To buy back his contract with Mercedes to obtain Lewis Hamilton it will cost you the modest sum of $ 19.5 million.
