How do drivers and teams receive their values?

At the start of the game all drivers, chassis and engines received their starting values. During the game their values can increase or decrease when a driver scores well or not.

A driver who finishes first, for instance, will become €9 million more valuable. But a driver who finishes 20th will decrease in value by €9 million. The maximum value of a driver is €150 million and the minimum value of a driver is €1 million.

After every race the values of each driver and team are changed automatically.

What is a subleague and how does it work?

A subleague is a league which has been set up by a player of the GPUpdateManager.net game. This means you can set up your own league for friends or family, allowing personal battles.

Feel free to open up your own league in the GPUpdateManager.net game or join somebody else's.

What does 'admin' mean behind my name?

If you have created a subleague you will be the 'admin' (administrator) of this league. You will be the only person in the league able to accept or decline people in the request. You are also the only person who can delete the league

How do you score points with chassis and engines?

The points you can score with your chassis and engine are the same. The two drivers that race for the team which is using your chassis and engine will both score points for you.

For example, when you own the Ferrari engine and Fernando Alonso wins a race with Felipe Massa second, you receive respective engine points for Alonso's win and for Massa's second place.

If a driver doesn't finish the race (as in seeing the chequered flag) he will not score points as a driver or for his chassis and engine. Even though a driver might be officially classified by the FIA, that does mean he receives points in the GPUpdateManager.net game without crossing the finish line.
