We still don't know - which only adds to the intrigue - but a driver who has been dropped so unceremoniously (again, I'm not saying it was wrong to drop him based on performance) doesn't usually stick around in the garage for the rest of the season. It's not as if he was doing much else or seriously threatening to leave for a VAG team, and even if he was that surely would have been covered in his contract. I think MyNameIsNigel spoke to Nicolas about this shortly after the season but he was understandably tight-lipped.
Anyway, whatever happened, I'm glad it's working out for him and TMG; a win for the 3rd car would be an emphatic resolution to this chapter.
