    Exactly.

    But Roland is sweating on the teams buying his engine, hence the huge sell job he's currently doing.


    I can actually see this becoming a wedge between RBR and the other Holden teams with Fans swapping allegiance.

    The entire commentary team will be instructed to follow team orders and talk up the V6.

    You can see it already.

    The commentry will support RBR no matter what engine they run. Hell Red bull can ran a two stroke engine. Skaife will talk up his holden team no matter what the sutiation.

    It wouldnt surprise me if Skaife played a role in Holden moving to RBR either.

    He's in love with Jamie.

    Jealous of what?
    Skaife loving Whincup and lowndes?

    Hardly.
    I don't need to get over anything

    There's no denying Skaife has an awkward bromance with Jamie and Craig.

    Their abilities aside it's creepy and uncomfortable to listen to and frankly the commentary bias is beyond a joke.
