    Useful Information:
    • Driver suggestion: Despite twice climbing to the top-5 in the opening three races, Martin Gosbee took his maiden FSR World Championship victory in Imola and went up to 3rd on the standings with his first podium of the season. Selected by only 19% of the 2014 FSR Fantasy League managers, Gosbee will be a good choice for those looking for a driver able to challenge the main championship contenders.

    • Interesting facts: Championship leader Morgan Morand remains the most selected driver in the 2014 FSR Fantasy League, with the Frenchman present in 63% of the teams. Ville Leppala has climbed to 2nd on the list, present in 50% of the teams, while 49% of the managers have picked Patrick De Wit for their teams.

    • Penalties, penalties everywhere: Marcel van der Linden, Carlos Martín, Robert Rudholm and Danny van der Niet have received Back of the Grid penalties for Qualifying infractions in the San Marino GP. Should they take part in the race, they will not be in contention for Poleman, Top Ten or Team Leader points. However, should they finish in the points, they may score many Overtaker points.

    Useful Information:
    • Driver suggestion: He needs no introduction, he's a four-time FSR World Champion. However, despite having a more challenging 2014 than the previous seasons he dominated, Bono Huis is one of the biggest candidates for the Indianapolis victory, specially with Morgan Morand starting from the back of the grid. He has so far taken a race win and five 2nd-place finishes in 7 races. With the Dutch driver selected by only 13% of the 2014 FSR Fantasy League managers, he will be one of the best choices for this round!
    • Interesting facts: After four 2014 FSR Fantasy League rounds, Morgan Morand, Blair Disley and Matt Sentell are the only drivers who saw the checkered flag on all four rounds. Ivar Kalamees and Dian Kostadinov are the drivers who climbed more positions on their way to scoring points (12 Overtaker points) while Morgan Morand and Bono Huis are the only drivers who didn't miss any Q2 shootout. Morgan Morand and Eros Masciulli are the only drivers who have led their teams in Qualifying on all four rounds, while Bono Huis, Martin Gosbee, Jack Keithley and Blair Disley are the only ones who scored Fair Play points on all rounds.
