One would think they could take both things into account. Car rank and driver skill.
I do agree that it is quite depressing to go into a race with a car around 900 against ppl up near 2 thousand or more

Hey there racers!
How was your first weekend with Asphalt 9?
Some players are wondering how the matchmaking works in Asphalt 9. Here is an explanation: 

The matchmaking is based on your race results: As you win and lose against other players, your skill level changes to reflect how well you perform in the game.
Occasionally you will be matched against players that are driving cars that have higher ranks than yours. This means that:
  • they do not play as well as you and need a stronger car to reach your skill level
  • they are transitioning to their real skill level and will quickly move up the ranks
Our objective is to get all players to a point where almost every race is a fun challenge, racing against opponents that can go around the tracks about as fast as you!
You have noticed as well that when you climb up to a different league you gain the right to use extra cars.
This is used to protect newer players so that they don’t get matched against impossible odds.

When you get to the top of your league, you will start to be matched against players from the league above you. You will need to play at your best level to move to the next  league and access the extra rewards!

nonsense.. Fix it!
