Earlier today (before your latest race) I reviewed the Elite tier standings of your league and the results from the first three races. It does not appear that Australia is being classified as race 1 as you suspect, it seems to be a a continuation of the longstanding bug where the tie break calculation uses the best finish to rank teams with equal points but for reasons unknown, ignores race 1.
This was your league standings after three races...
And here are the results of the first three races showing the best finishing position for the teams on zero points...
As you can see the team who should be ranked highest of those on zero points is Davern GP by virtue of their 12th place in Austria but it seems the Austria race has been ignored.
This still has me confused because if it is simply a case of ignoring the Austria result (race 1) the rankings remain incorrect as Davern GP should be ranked higher than BM Racing because of their 19th place in Germany against BM Racing's 23rd place in Australia.
This has been escalated to Jack and I'm hearing that he applied a fix to the tie break algorithm this morning. Has it worked? Watch this space LOL.
