When you make a bid on a driver, 6 days must pass with no one else bidding higher. If the easy have passed, you win the auction. You then hire the driver. No matter what, you do not have to bid higher to match his new WDC price. That is it, he is contracted to your team for the following season.
So if Franklin successfully sign Joan’s Phipps, it wil not matter what his price is at the end of the season, he is already signed. … Jonah Phipps to Franklin Honda… That would be surprising!
If the 6 uninterrupted days do not pass and the driver you are bidding on moves higher in the WDC, you MUST match the new price.
You also must post your bid on the website, this is mandatory.
