Its a shame one cannot do business that way, but it took more than a few snakes in the grass to ruin that method for everyone with honest intentions. If what DORNA posted in their statement is true, well then either they threw up that condition knowing Schwantz couldn't meet it in an attempt to screw him, or Schwantz simply failed to meet his contract obligations and this is the proper result.
The concept of politics in motor-sport (or any sport) is ridiculous, but it is a fact of life. And we as fans vote with our dollars.
If KS has a contract then he should be paid, if the terms are met, and will be through legal proceedings
