    Round Results & Standings

    One of the magic things of the FSR Fantasy League is that while winning a round is definitely not an easy task and demands lining up the perfect team, some are able to win instantaneously. Wim van Velden, from the Netherlands, got off to a blistering start! He signed up and created his team just before the British GP and with his Plan B team, he won his first ever FSR Fantasy League round! The winning team consisted of race winner Ivar Kalamees, Jack Keithley, Gergo Baldi and Giuseppe Marconi. Switzerland's Franz Schnyder was 2nd with 89 points, while Spaniard Carlos Martín was 3rd on 82 points.

    Monaco round-winner Franz Schnyder enjoyed another strong round, with the Swiss always placing in the top-4 in the opening 3 rounds to retake the championship lead with 240 points. He leads the battle for the Thrustmaster Y-250C Gaming Headset from Javier Álvarez, who moved down to 2nd on 220 points. Pedro Rodrigues remains 3rd with 196 points.

    Wim van Velden joins Ondrej Kuncman, Franz Schnyder and Javier Álvarez as a contender for the other Thrustmaster Y-250C Gaming Headset that will be drawn among all round winners at the end of the season.

    Driver Results & Costs

    In an incredible race which had several contenders for victory like Bono Huis, Atze Kerkhof, Morgan Morand or Martin Gosbee, the new FSR World Championship leader prevailed: Ivar Kalamees. The Estonian took his first win of the season and was also the top scoring driver of the round with 36 Fantasy points. 2nd-place finisher Jack Keithley scored 29 points while Jernej Simoncic finished 4th from his 13th grid slot to become the 3rd top scorer on 26 points.

    For the first time in the two FSR Fantasy League seasons, Bono Huis is no longer the top scoring driver of the season so far, with Ivar Kalamees now leading on 89 points, ahead of Jernej Simoncic on 72 points. Bono Huis and Philipp Puschke are tied on 69 points each.

    Drivers' market costs were updated. Martin Gosbee (+800$), Zsolt Nagy (+600$) and Chris de Jong (+600$) were the drivers who climbed the costs ladder the most. 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.
