not a bad resume after 1 year in the game. considering he didn't score points in the 1st 3 races thats an outstanding result. missed 2nd in rookie standings by 6 points. only 70odd off the lead.

well done marcos! not sure what the v8 drivers earn but i'd hazzard a guess that its probably less than $US256 grand.

Some of the top drivers in V8's are rumoured to earn close to 1 mill a year in driver payments alone. It would be interesting to know what he earns from the team.
