    Round Results & Standings

    Race Points

    With his ProDrive team, Rob van Starkenburg has become a new FSR Fantasy League round winner, taking round 8 home with 100 points. The winning lineup consisted of race winner Bono Huis, together with first-time podium finisher Gergo Baldi, team-mate Peter Varga and Giuseppe Marconi. Canadian Fred Owen also scored 100 points but had to settle for 2nd due to having a 100$ more expensive team, losing out after the first tie-breaker criterion was applied. Bradley Vanian, from Great Britain, was 3rd with 98 points.

    Despite placing only 52nd with 33 points this round, Ondrej Kuncman, from Czech Republic, continues to dominate at the top of the standings with 588 points, in the quest for the Thrustmaster T-Wireless 3 in 1 Rumble Force Gamepad. Nicolas Gschwind, from Argentina, remains 2nd with 552 points despite placing 36th this round. A not-so-good round for Mikko Puumlainen, from Finland, dropped him to 6th, allowing his compatriot John-Eric Saxen to climb to 3rd with 504 points. Long-time leader Simon Adebisi has returned to the Top 10 and is now 8th with 458 points, 3 more than round winner Rob van Starkenburg, who has moved up to 10th.

    Rob van Starkenburg has joined Simon Adebisi (2x), John-Eric Saxen, Andrew Smith, Paul Boon and Ondrej Kuncman as a contender for the Thrustmaster Dual Trigger 3 in 1 Rumble Force Gamepad that a round winner will take home at the end of the season.

    With a perfect hattrick performance, Bono Huis has made a winning comeback after a 3-race drought. Those managers who trusted the Dutch driver will be pleased with the 52 points he scored, becoming once again the top-scoring driver of the round. Jeffrey Rietveld had another great round, scoring 29 points, while Gergo Baldi scored his maiden WC podium and 26 FSR Fantasy League points. Several managers were affected by the conditional ban received by Morgan Morand, with the French driver scoring -6 points this round.

    Drivers' market costs were updated. Mark Aalberts (+600$) was the driver who climbed the costs ladder the most, with many others getting 100$ more expensive than in the previous round. Remember that the drivers that you already have on your team will continue to cost you what they did when you included them on your lineup.

    If you are proud of your result on the eighth round of the FSR Fantasy League, remember you can share your achievements with your Facebook friends and Twitter followers by pressing the Facebook/Twitter icons in your My Team page!

    The ninth round of the FSR Fantasy League will be the Japanese GP on September 30th. Remember to perform the driver transfers and swaps you need to become the next round winner! Just 4 rounds remaining!

  4. I was looking pretty good after trading for Brljak, but Morand's DNF finished my chances. Maybe there's some hope in the next race.

  6. Round Recap updated the reflect the fact that managers will no longer need to replace Morgan Morand for the remaining rounds, since his season ban was made conditional by the Court of Appeal. This also means that he remains a championship contender.

    While in this particular case the Court of Appeal's conditional ban verdict would have resulted in the same round score for Morand, remember that, as per the FSR Fantasy League rules, Court of Appeal decisions do NOT produce changes to the FSR Fantasy League results.
