Think there's a fair element of that too, looking at who has left the team.

He shoots his mouth off way too much.

Davey started doing that a bit, rather than play the lovable larrikin he was.
Things had to go south pretty badly to go from yes I’ll stay for 10 years to I wanna leave after 1.

Are there any rumors around around which manufacturers are potentially looking to join - I know Walkinshaw were close to signing with someone pre-Covid. Would be interesting to see who.

What happened to the 10 year plan?
If NSWCROW wasn’t already upset, he is now.
Not really, I def raised an eyebrow when the contract was announced.

I saw Betty's statement the otherday that covered all sorts of issues but what stood out for me was her defence of Barry.

It stuck out because as far as i know, no one's come out in any media sources and attacked him.
Sure plenty of fans have in forums and comment sections but to me, her getting her back up over it set off my Spidey Sense.

No one's attacked him, but if half the team want out, including 2 very talented drivers and a couple of great engineers.....then you'd have to say Barry might be the problem.

yeah no one in the media wants to rock the boat just for a story but i haven't seen a lot of positive comments for Barry on Speedcafe, AA etc etc, just character assessments

Holdsworth and Tickford parting ways for some reason?
Says mutual but I can’t see why Lee would leave?
Basically they couldn't find another REC for him despite trying for months, and Truck Assist is actually Le Broqs sponsor and they want him in the car.

So despite having a pretty good year he's out.

So it’s not really mutual then I guess as the article says
