  • EA Sports' highly anticipated new game, "F1 22," released on June 28.

  • It is the newest edition of the racing game based on Formula One.

"F1 22" is the 21st installment of the popular video game and it was released by EA Sports on June 28.

In this year's version, defending champion Max Verstappen is tied with 7-time champion Lewis Hamilton as the highest-rated drivers. They are followed by Charles Leclerc and Hamilton's teammate, George Russell.

Here is the top 10:

  • Max Verstappen, 94

  • Lewis Hamilton, 94

  • Charles Leclerc, 92

  • George Russell, 90

  • Lando Norris, 90

  • Fernando Alonso, 89

  • Sergio Perez, 88

  • Valtteri Bottas, 88

  • Carlos Sainz, 87

  • Sebastian Vettel, 87
