During the 2014 season, there have been a few occasions where the harmony within the paddock has been disrupted, with a number of flashpoints leading to murmurs of discontent from some teams.
Franklin have been the antagonists in this story on two occasions: Firstly in their conduct with their two championship fighting drivers, one of whom - Hoskins - is leaving the team next season. This has meant some teams feel he is undermining the integrity of the championship, potentially bringing it into disrepute.
Secondly, his deal with Ingram to pay for some of Jean Mattson's price tag has been badly received by Meteor as well as others in FV, as the deal was made under the assumption Ingram would have to pay the price in full themselves.
The result of this is that some teams are rumoured to be considering either going on strike for the start of next season, or will pull out altogether. What will come of this? Is the future of FV in doubt?
