    Round Results & Standings

    The 2014 FSR Fantasy League never stops surprising! Liam Lagana signed up and created his first team for this GP and, scoring 79 points, he has won his first ever FSR Fantasy League round! With his AOR team, the manager from Malta repeated a feat achieved by Wim van Velden in 2013. What a blistering start to his FSR Fantasy League career! The winning team consisted of the dream-duo of race winner Morgan Morand and Bono Huis, plus Robert Rudholm. He definitely chose an interesting strategy, picking up the two most expensive drivers next to four 400$ ones. Ethan Pullen, from Great Britain, took 2nd place with 73 points, beating Italy's Giuseppe Marconi due to having a less expensive team. James Sadler also scored the same points but was classified behind due to scoring less Team A points, after the second tie-breaker criterion was applied.

    In the battle for the Thrustmaster Y-250C Gaming Headset, Fred Gosling, from Great Britain, remains at the stop of the standings with 291 points. Spaniard Carlos Martín continues 2nd , just 6 points behind. Meanwhile, British manager Kyle Morris moved up to 3rd on the standings, with 266 points. The huge amount of post-race penalties have shaken the race results up and have also played their part on the FSR Fantasy League results. From the top-10 managers in the standings, Ron Squire had the best round, despite placing 16th. The top-3 were much further down, with Gosling, Martín and Morris placing 32nd, 34th and 30th respectively this round.

    Liam Lagana joins Danny van der Niet, Carlos Martin and Muhammed Patel 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

    With a hatrick performance, Morgan Morand returned to the top step of the podium and also became the round's top scorer on 45 points, despite receiving a post-race penalty. 2nd-placed driver Bono Huis was the 2nd top scorer on 32 points, while David Greco had a great race from the back of the grid to 5th place and became the round's 3rd scorer on 23 points. It was definitely an atypical round, with 6 drivers on the negative side of the scale, just 7 drivers scoring 10 points or more and just 11 out of 26 scoring Fair Play points for a clean race.

    After four rounds, Morgan Morand remains the 2014 FSR Fantasy League's top scorer with 160 points. Bono Huis and Ivar Kalamees are next on the list with 105 and 73 points respectively.

    Drivers' market costs were updated. Jack Keithley (+300$) and John-Eric Saxen (+300$) 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.
