Driver's salary: $ 30 million for all drivers?  / Thread 1

Those responsible for Formula 1 want to cap the driver’s salary. Teams should decide for themselves how the maximum amount is split between regular drivers and test pilots.

This year, for the first time, teams will have to adhere to a budget of $ 145 million, excluding the salaries of the top employees of each racing team, but also the wages of the Formula 1 stars. With up to $ 40 million per year estimated for the protagonist in GP Circus, only a few know how much Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen and company actually earn.

Franz Toast is the one who knows his way around driver fees. For a long time, the team of Skaderia Alphatauri speaks in favor of a radical salary cap for boss drivers. Last year Tyrolian made it clear in Imola: “You make too much money.” Because no spectators are allowed due to the epidemic, everyone will take less. “So I see no reason why drivers should not reduce.”

The 65-year-old team boss insisted even more and said: “You should be happy that you have this job and you can make your money.” If Toast has its way, the pilots’ wages must be less than ten million dollars. However, the new requirements should not be as strict as those of the “Gazeta dello Sport” report.

The talk amounts to $ 30 million for two regular pilots as well as reservoirs, which does not include bonus payments for World Championship point wins and GP wins, as well as income from individual marketing rights. The upper limit for driver pay is effective from 2023. Existing contracts remain unchanged.
