The new season has only just started and the first trends can already be seen. Which team is the best and which is the worst? How strong are the teams in the upcoming F1 game?

First about the teams in general: In the 2022 season, the same F1 teams will compete as last season. Only the livery of the cars was renewed as usual.

Due to the new rules of the F1 2022 season, the strength of the teams has changed significantly compared to last season. So some teams have slipped extremely, while other teams have come to new strength.

All F1 Teams in Comparison (2021 vs. 2022)

For a comparison I use the result of the constructors' championship 2021 compared to the current qualifying and race results of the 2022 season.

Be careful: This is my personal, provisional evaluation of the current power rankings for the F1 2022 season. This can change over the course of the season!

Another question is, when will Codemasters take the strength of the teams into the game. There are about 4 months between the start of the season and the release of the game. During this time there are still some upgrades on the cars in the real Formula 1 coming, which changes the power rankings.
