Podcast: Are the ratings of the new F1 game drivers correct?
July will be an exciting month for Formula 1 fans as the 2020 season finally starts with two races in Austria and the wait for racing ends.
On July 10, F1 2020 - Codemasters' latest official video game - will also be released, giving fans around the world the ability to cycle from bike to bike on their consoles or PCs.
Over the past few weeks, Codemasters have released a series of videos that go right through to the launch of the game, and have promoted a brand new game mode that allows players to form their own teams.
The new game will also make the driver ratings debut, with the score for each of the 20 F1 stars being announced on the sport's social media channels in the past few days.
While big hitters like Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen understandably score high, some of the other reviews have sparked mixed response in the F1 community.
Did these driver reviews miss the mark when F1 plans to take another big step with its virtual product? Or should they be taken with a pinch of salt as it's just a game?
In the latest edition of Is It Just Me? In the podcast, Jess McFadyen and Luke Smith will discuss the reviews and how they should work, and consider what changes could have been made.

The podcast will be broadcast live on the Autosport YouTube channel from 3 p.m. BST and will later be available on all good audio platforms.
