In my game I've been offered a contract by Lotus and it's for $6,500,000 for the following season, as I assume that's what the contract is. My score, as I assume that's what this is based on is currently 18, if I recall correctly. I've just won Hockenheim and I got this contract offer and Trulli hasn't even scored a point, let alone finish above 15th spot either! The "press" in any interview I have with them ask me if I am going to move to another team or stay put with Lotus. The usual Q&A stuff.. "Am I happy", "Will you accept the offer?", "Are you in negotiations?" etc etc. So far I've not said yes/no to anyone at all and also I've been like an MP, not given anyone a straight answer to the questions.. Just said "let's wait and see how things go" or words to that effect that is. A few questions you maybe able to answer, "says me hopefully" Is there a time limit on this offer? What happens if I turn this offer down from Lotus? Could I negotiate a better one with Lotus? Or could I go to another team to see what they have to offer me? I've had all the teams at the lower end of the rankings show interest in me. Also I know I won't get a seat from one of the top teams (yet! lol) ie; McLaren, Red Bull, Ferrari etc. Will any of the mid-table teams make an offer soon or do I accept the current offer on the table, as I'm currently leading the Drivers Championship by about 10 points. Yes I know.. Lotus winning the Drivers Championship...!! "In your dreams". One day maybe... one day. I'm currently on the 7 season setting in the game. Assuming I don't get that corrupt file problem where you have to delete the auto-save games and restart that is. I've had to do that once before too! Any tips on what I should do.. or not do even would be gratefully accepted. "Answers on a postcard to..." Post edited for "update on contract offer" Just taken a look at the offers on the table My current "Rep" 19 (small gap to "fill in near the top, so I assume that will be raised after Budapest, that is, if I get a good result there) Lotus offer: No1 Driver $6,500,000 1yr. Objective: Finish 20th Teams "showing interest" Virgin: Rep Req'd : 05 / Favoured / Impressed with the way I handle the press HRT: Rep Req'd : 05 / Favoured / Impressed with the way I handle the press Toro Rosso: Rep Req'd : 13 / Favoured / Strong Candidate BMW Sauber: Rep Req'd : 15 / Favoured / Strong Candidate Force India: Rep Req'd : 20 / Favoured / Strong Candidate The white circle by the team names all have a "missing slice" and if you imagine these as a clock face then the "missing pie-slice" all show a 20 min section timewise that is.... Sorry it's the best analogy I can use to describe this.
