F1 2020 Driver Ratings – Codemasters Or Code-blunders?

F1 2020 Driver Ratings
You aren’t alone if the recent F1 2020 driver ratings have you amused. In this week’s Pits to Podium segment, we tell you the many misses and few hits of the F1 2020 driver ratings.

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 segment in this week’s show. The catchy title is courtesy Soumil Arora, one of the hosts of the Pits to Podium show.

Did Lando Norris Pay For His Private F3 Test?

Also, will Bernie Ecclestone keep a finder’s fee in case he get Williams an investor / buyer? Will F1 include fake fans and fake fan noise in their TV broadcasts? Will F1’s new TV graphics amuse us further? Did Nicholas Latifi not pay Codemasters to not have the lowest ratings possible for 2020? In fact, here’s one more flaw in the F1 2020 video game – hiring Nicholas Latifi would be an earning for the team, so a ‘contract cost’ column doesn’t make sense or does it? Tune in!
