And Mercedes still made 14.7 million profit for winning F1 in 2019 from a total spend of 333 million

Verstappen is hardly a bargain...all that salary plus all the crash repair bills.
And he rarely wins a race never mind a championship.
How is a salary cap supposed to work...everyone will want to get paid the maximum allowed.

It'll be interesting in April next year (eoty) what the sums are after the backdrop of HAM's cash demand and the covid hit.

Not sure those job losses can be blamed on Lewis wages

BMW are apparently laying off 16,000 workers

No prizes for guessing what those to-be laid off workers think about the 40M euro's HAM cash bonanza.

Which would work out to just over 2,666 per laid off worker....not going to make much difference in the grand scheme of things

It is absolutely wrong.

Whenever I see something like this I put my own scale up:

Any labor: 25K per year

Any non-professional intellectual career (engineering, architecture, nursing) : 50K per year

Any legal or medical profession: 75k per year

Senior leaders in a corp: 100k per year.

Would you be ok with this and where do you fall, my friend?

Would you be ok with this and where do you fall, my friend?
Well my friend . We are talking about HAM's 45.65 Million contract...
Think that's something else ..
Think about it ! That's just his base salary , without his private sponsors deal money and race price money like victories ,podiums and poles .
Last year HAM ran 17 races - his 1 COVID race = "16 races"

45.65 Million Dollar:16 = That's "2.85 Million Dollar" to drive a race ..."ONE" race !
Or let us say 2.85 Million Dollar in 90 minutes !

Where I fall my friend ? That's really hard to tell in Belgium ..Because 60 % from my money is always stolen !
Well I "NEVER" see my entire salary (incomes) because 60% is for the Belgian government ..
Yeah .We are talking about "INSANE Belgian TAXES" ! You know what I mean ? That's your income - (minus 60%) !!!
You know how that feels my friend ? It feels like they pull your pants down in the middle of the marketplace my friend !!!

Right ! 40 % is for my pockets . BUT !!! In the end of the year I will receive a paper from our Belgian Government in my letterbox ! And I have to pay taxes on my remaining 40 % AGAIN !!!

"Would you be ok with this and where do you fall, my friend" ?

My friend .That's why I'll say it again ..

"God Bless America"

The taxes in your country are just outrageous my friend, as the E U hq are based in Brussels one can only imagine why they are like that.
