Round Results & Standings

For the sixth time in as many rounds, the 2014 FSR Fantasy League has a new round winner! The Italian round has a local winner: Giuseppe Marconi, who scored 74 points to take the round victory with his Rosso27Racing team, composed by Morgan Morand, Jack Keithley, Jernej Simoncic and Patrick De Wit. The winning team did not feature race winner Ivar Kalamees. Dom Crill, from Great Britain, was 2nd on 71 points, while Czech Republic's Jakub Smetana took 3rd with the same score, but a slightly more expensive team.

Placing 7th in this round, Great Britain's Fred Gosling retook the lead of the standings, in the battle for the Thrustmaster Y-250C Gaming Headset. He has 418 points to his name, just 6 more than fellow countryman James Sadler, who lost the lead after placing 26th in the Italian round. Spaniard David Dominguez climbed to 3rd on the standings with 390 points.

Giuseppe Marconi joins Danny van der Niet, Carlos Martin, Muhammed Patel, Liam Lagana and James Sadler 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

Winning his first race of the season with a very strong drive, Ivar Kalamees was the round's top scorer on 37 points. 3rd-placed driver Bono Huis, who climbed to the podium after a disappointing Qualifying, was the round's 2nd scorer on 32 points, with 2nd-placed Morgan Morand right behind on 30 points. This round was the first FSR Fantasy League round ever where 7 drivers scored 20 points or above.

After six rounds, Morgan Morand and Bono Huis remain the 2014 FSR Fantasy League's top scorers with 223 and 166 points respectively, while Ivar Kalamees regained the 3rd place on the list with 122 points.

Drivers' market costs were updated. Jernej Simoncic (+900$), Robert Rudholm (+600$) and Eros Masciulli (+500$) 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.
