Pickles should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Absolutely. People will always dress the situation up to make it look like they're the ones in control. Obviously I have no idea on the situation with AJ but he's not going to come out and say 'Yea, I'd love to be able to drive this year but I just can't afford it.' My understanding was that the deal with WSR changed after COVID which would have involved him having to pay out of his own pocket. If thats the case you can't blame him for taking a step back, he's got a family and business to think of.

Yeah, I fully agree and it is true what you said about Jordan and his reasons behind withdrawing from 2020.
But what he said about being in WSR and it being the only place he wants to be was true last year maybe. But who knows what will be in the future. I mean if other team gave him opportunity that would be financially viable then I could see him switching teams.

Plato was definately putting a lot of spin in his story. If he could be out there he would and underneath it all he will be gutted he's not out.

If all the "spin" is stripped away, for both Jordan and Plato, and no doubt others.
With the absence of on circuit spectators, the lack of on event hospitality and the losses most companies have experienced, the companies lined up to provide sponsorship have decided not to proceed.
With the lack of those funds, Jordan, Plato, & others, are unable to pay for the drives.
