Max Verstappen earns extra £12m in bonuses alone for historic F1 season after beating Lewis Hamilton to title

MAX VERSTAPPEN reportedly pocketed £12million in bonuses for his Formula 1 world championship triumph on Sunday. The Dutchman controversially pipped Lewis Hamilton to the title after a questionable late decision by under-fire FIA chief Michael Masi. As well as sealing him title championship glory, Masi’s decision also earned Verstappen a pretty penny. Including bonuses and add-ons, the Brit was thought to earn around £40m with Mercedes. SunSport revealed last week that he could have pocketed a further £4m in bonuses, had he won his eighth world title. But he was denied this further boost by Masi’s late controversy, with stars including Gary Lineker hitting out at the FIA.
