Jo Siffert and BRM

It all seems a bit less straightfprward every time i think about it - so anyone on here throw any insight? I guess Howden Ganley would know, he was no.3 there that year.
BTW, Ickx has just crashed and Cevert has passed Rega into 3rd, behind Jo...

Ferrari had also made an offer for 1968.
In '68 and '69 he chose to stay with Walker. In 1970 he didn't expect the BRM to be competitive since they hadn't done much for a few years, so he chose March. However it turned out that the March was not competitive, and BRM surely looked better after 1970.
The book doesn't say that Porsche was involved in financing the 1971 ride, so I'll assume they weren't.
There must be more info out there...
