23: F1 2020 Driver Ratings - An Impractical Joke?


F1 2020’s driver ratings have created a furore among fans. Whether it’s Valtteri Bottas’ 99 rating in the awareness column or Lance Stroll’s pace rating being better than Esteban Ocon’s or that Romain Grosjean’s overall rating is better than Kevin Magnussen’s – the driver ratings have brought us more laughs than a serious discussion. Btw, Nicholas Latifi’s overall low rating and Alexander Albon’s rating being lower than his Alpha Tauri counterparts are the few ratings that make some sense. There’s more in our Pits to Podium (https://bit.ly/3e6osdM) segment in this week’s show. Tune in!
