I'm sure I read somewhere he was demanding £15m per season. That's a ridiculous amount of cash to drop on a driver that hasn't really performed since '97. Even if they paid Jense and Takumu a Million each (which they don't) that'd be an extra £13m to put into the car. At the end of the day, after all the pre-season posturing, the figures speak for themselves: JV - 6 pts JB - 17 pts Hell - Takuma scored half as many points as JV did all season in one race! Anyway, he (JV) did say at the begining of the season that if he didn't outperform Jense he ought to get out of F1. Goodbyeeeeeeee!
