This means that tonight at least 20 managers can consider themselves lucky. And there will be the poor one, who would actually feel lucky for a while...

Amazing Talent...
but a very heavy Driver, with almost no experience,
who cant focus for more than 2 minutes and only has a slight clue on how to set the car up.

But hey,, he's got Talent to the extreme and is reasonably motivated.

Great Choice...... :O

Indeed. The one who "wins" the bidding war isn't necessarily going to be a winner of it :)

looking at the 20M managaer, it doesn't seem like a beginner, so I think a little reasoning about what he was doing, he did it

Feel free to PM me if you spot another average driver with a lot of offers, I can also sacrifice myself for the greater good. :)

20M salary...WOOW.... I will closely follow this guy's progress this season...This experiment got me very intriuged to be fair... )))

Meanwhile...My two offers were so low, that they got rejected even though, I was the only offer-maker for the driver...Meaning I will probably miss the first race of the season....)))

Pure heroism, bra-vo! ;) There's the catch though some of the outbid will learn their lesson and offer 25m next market.
