Each of the different racing series have a different set of rules. In the European Racing series one of the active rules means that there is no qualifying and instead the starting positions for the race are calculated by taking the current series standings and reversing the positions. Therefore if you are 1st in the Driver standings you will begin the race from the back of the grid. The rules for each series can be viewed when selecting your series at the start of a new career or via the Standings screen within a career. Rules can also be changed during a career through GMA votes.
