    Useful Information:
    • The FSR WC Monaco GP will be the first round of the 2013 FSR Fantasy League. Remember to create your team in time to maximize your chances of taking the 2013 crown and winning fantastic Thrustmaster prizes. Are you ready to win the opening round of the 2013 FSR Fantasy League?

    • Jasco Spain PSR's 2013 debutants Alex Diaz and Moises Rondon are the most selected drivers so far, being present in 78% and 69% of all teams respectively. Ville Leppala is the 3rd most selected driver, picked by 48% of the FSR Fantasy League managers so far. Most selected drivers over 1000$ are Morgan Morand (43%), Ivar Kalamees (30%) and Peter Varga (28%).

    • In order to create the perfect FSR Fantasy League team, take a look at how would drivers have fared in the first 3 races of the season. Hypothetical points scored by drivers in each of the 3 races and the round by round and totals statistics are available in this thread: How would drivers have fared in the first 3 races? (2013).

    • Yannick Lapchin has received a Back of the Grid penalty for a Qualifying infraction in the Chinese GP. He will not be in contention for Poleman, Top Ten or Team Leader points. However, should he finish in the points, he may score many Overtaker points.

  8. Teams will be locked on Sunday, June 2nd 15:30 GMT! Until then, you may create your team and perform driver transfers/swaps in time for the Canadian GP.

    Useful Information:
    • Driver suggestion: While not widely regarded as the most consistent driver in the field, Patrick De Wit is the only driver who has scored points in all four races of the season to date. However, 5th on the standings, he is the first driver in the table yet to climb to the podium. Can the dutch driver make his first rostrum appearance of the season at the scene of his maiden Pole Position in 2007?

    • Alex Diaz and Moises Rondon remain the most selected drivers by the 2013 FSR Fantasy League managers, although their teams percentage went down to 67% and 65% respectively. Morgan Morand moved ahead of Leppala to become the third most selected driver, now present in 46% of the teams.

    • Zoltan Csuti has received a Back of the Grid penalty for a Qualifying infraction in the Monaco GP. Should he take part in the race, he will not be in contention for Poleman, Top Ten or Team Leader points. However, should he finish in the points, he may score many Overtaker points.

  11. Teams will be locked on Sunday, June 16th 15:30 GMT! Until then, you may create your team and perform driver transfers/swaps in time for the British GP.

    Useful Information:
    • Driver suggestion: Despite not climbing to the podium in any of his previous World Championship races, Philipp Puschke took everyone by surprise and celebrated his maiden WC victory at Montreal, in what was also his first podium finish after being close several times. Despite his cost obviously going up after his victory, Philipp is still only the 4th most expensive driver in the 2013 FSR Fantasy League and is currently selected by only 11% of the managers. Can the German surprise again and make it two in a row?

    • Interesting Facts: After 2 FSR Fantasy League rounds this season, the drivers of the Precision Motorsports and GhostSpeed Racing teams are the best-scoring ones so far. And in both cases, there is an incredible team parity. Precision team-mates Bono Huis and Ivar Kalamees have scored 53 Fantasy points each, while GhostSpeed drivers Morgan Morand and Philipp Puschke both scored 48. Which drivers will end the parity in their favour at Silverstone?

    • Penalties, penalties everywhere: Morgan Morand, one of the most selected drivers in the 2013 FSR Fantasy League, has received a Back of the Grid penalty for a Qualifying infraction in the Canadian GP. Should he take part in the race, he will not be in contention for Poleman, Top Ten or Team Leader points. However, should he finish in the points, he may score many Overtaker points.

After taking his second WC victory and becoming the fourth winner in six races this season, can the Estonian make it two in a row in a race without top driver retirements?

    • Interesting facts: After the opening 3 rounds of the 2013 FSR Fantasy League, Ivar Kalamees is the driver who scored most WC points during the period (61), followed by Philipp Puschke (43) and Jernej Simoncic (39).
