Think about all the amounts you can possibly fill out when offering a contract other than just salary per race to a driver.

There lies your answer.
Overall the other contract must have been better than yours

What other factor important more than salary? Driver's bonuses, signing fee... Drivers have big money eyes :)

and contract length also

If you hire a new driver, you'll just pay compensation for your old driver (50% salary * races left in contract)

Daniel proposes this math homework:
If A offers 2.5kk salary for 17 races with a one-off 1.1kk , and B offers 2kk and we know that the maximum one-off is triple the salary, who offers more?

My daughter in 1st grade solves it in 5 minutes ... in fact, however, she has 9 maths ...

You're forgetting 4 other parts of the offers that impact on the driver's decision quite considerably......

(Actually maybe only 3 in this case as you have already mentioned 17 races - and contract length is one of the 4 factors you have ignored)

Dumb newbie question: I have a good pilot (http://www.gpro.net/gb/DriverProfile.asp?ID=15292) but he done raised his OA above 85, so Im gonna lose him by the end of the season

Should I hire a new one? He still got 12 races left and Im around 14.000.000 in money. I understand that if I change before the end of season, I will keep the pilot it even if I stay on rookie (I probably will), is that right?

As long as he still has races remaining on his contract and his OA is not above 85 aafter the final race of the season then, yes, you will keep him if you remain in Rookie.

Hi Diogo

If you change driver now you will have to pay compensation for your current driver which is half his remaining contract (in this case 12*270,000)
You will only keep him if his OA is 85 and below. As soon as he hit 86 you risk losing him regardless of the remaining time left on the contract
Depends on the drivers motivation you can lower it by going below -15m before the end of the season (before R17 but not too early) and this will give the driver 0 motivation and might drop his OA below 85

Yes, I understand I will have to pay compensation, but maybe is still a good idea to replace him? Because the current one is 93 OA

But I didnt knew I could lower his OA by lowering his motivation, but how can I do that? Dude is pretty motivated right now (250)

So just before the R17 spend all your money until you hit below -15m and then the motivation will go down to 0 after the quali deadline. If its still below -15m after race update it'l still be 0

Should do if the OA currently doesnt change too much. Motivation has a huge impact on the current OA which is why a lot of the time OA doesn't mean much as motivation has quite a bit of influence on it

The car most probably won't make it. You need to go to /gb/UpdateCar.asp and buy a new gear (please note that if you want to buy/downgrade other parts, you have to do it during the same operation).

Having part wear at 100% shouldn't influence your possibility to practice. Maybe you meant testing?

Mike I suggest that join the mentor program, you should benefit greatly from some guidance and it should help with more than just a new driver.
