the only driver I ever heard of that owed the team driver to not drive!

Roger Penske was smart, and experienced, and put a buy out clause in the contract he signed drivers up with... and when Chris Amon bailed before the 1966 season started, as he was a driver for Scuderia Ferrrari in F1as a second stringer, when Bandini was killed in Monaco, and Enzo called him up to primary. Amon had to bail on Penske, but not without paying for the inconvenience.
