    Frosty to Team 18?!

    I can only hope that if this is true, it means they're running a Mustang next year.

    That's the only way its palatable.

    If its true (both) i hope he does really well.

    I donít really want him to move away from Tickford. That would be very disappointing to witness. As mentioned if he does I hope it will be behind the wheel of a new Mustang but is it really that realistic given the team have only recently invested a new Opel?

    They quoted him as saying he has a deal on offer from Tickford but was also fielding offers from "multiple other teams".

    This probably won't be a popular view but you couldn't blame him (or Chaz) for looking outside their current situation.

    Given recent performance itís possible his employer hasnít offered a salary increase or potentially even a reduction, who knows. I hope it doesnít all come down to money and given my perception of Mark that seems unlikely.

    What there is no shying away from is the team have dropped the ball this year. That makes everyone unhappy and creates a breeding ground for negativity and self serving and protective behaviors to creep in. Itís just gone on too long and needs to be arrested before attracting and maintaining the right type of talent becomes more difficult.

    Yeah agree.

    There's been whispers they don't have the budget for next year that they currently have and it may impact salaries.

    Sometimes things are so broken the only way to fix them is people go their separate ways.

    We always hear this about PRA and budgets yet they always make it to the next race/round/season surely if their deals were so marginal there would have been some sort of realignment of the team and it's structure by now. Surely there is no bottomless pit which continues to be mined to cover the shortfall from the Pepsi and Ford funded heyday

    I'd say he'll resign with Tickford. I guarantee drivers will have their management field offers from other teams. It would have to be some decent money for him to switch.

    Hopefully just part of his negotiating process with Tickford.... letting Tickford know there are others that would take him
