Why did Jack Miller cause a Fantasy headache in Jerez?

The Australian was transferred out by nearly 4000 managers before then taking victory and a handsome 37 points at the Spanish GP

MotoGP™ Fantasy managers were left scratching their heads on Sunday night after the Spanish GP. Jack Miller's (Ducati Lenovo Team) stunning performance upset the odds in Jerez and it caught a number of Fantasy managers off guard. He was by and away the most transferred-out rider of the Spanish GP with a whopping 3744 of you ditching the factory Ducati man just 24 hours before he clinched victory.

It gets worse though for managers across an unpredictable weekend, with the most transferred-in rider being Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP's Fabio Quartararo. 3287 managers had smug looks on their faces with 13 laps completed before it then all went wrong. Miller walked away with 37 points and Quartararo with just 18, creating a pivotal swing of 19 points.

Miller was joined in the dream team for the Spanish GP by teammate Francesco Bagnaia, with the leading factory being Ducati too. A day to remember for the boys from Bologna. The Desmosedici pairing were able to walk away from the Circuito de Jerez - Angel Nieto with an incredible 102 points: 37 for Miller, 31 for Bagnaia and 34 for Ducati.

The silver pairing in your Spanish Grand Prix optimal team were Franco Morbidelli (Petronas Yamaha SRT) and Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar). Yamaha's Morbidelli was the highest points scorer on Saturday after grabbing an extra five bonus points for topping Q1 before then qualifying second on the grid. On Sunday, the Italian collected a further 16 points, his biggest haul of the season, meaning he features in our optimal team for the first time in 2021. Mir produced yet another Mir performance on Sunday as he rose through from tenth on the grid to take fifth, and 22 points as a result.
