That was ten years ago though, and as good a tester as Skaife was, he has never raced a current generation car.

For all of Adderton's defending of his young drivers, Michael Caruso in his first start achieved the team's best result of the year with a 9th.

A creditable performance, especially given he had very little seat time.

You wonder whether he might have had more wins had he not sat in a Nissan for 6 years.

Arguably neither have the current BMGRM pilots

How is Tander paid not to race?

If Tander had signed a contract for 2019, and there were no get out clauses, then GRM would have to pay him out. But then if that were the case, it would have been able to prevent him from signing with Triple 8 as an enduro driver. That it didn't may point to either a negotiated settlement being reached, or no contract actually having been signed.

If there was a contract for 2019, I'd guess there would have been a settlement involving a payout that also allowed him to race elsewhere. A pity he went, looks like GRM could have really used his experience setting up cars this year.
