‘Their lives are at stake while driving’ – Max Verstappen, on £37m-a-year, blasts ‘insane’ idea of F1 driver salary cap

FORMULA ONE world champion Max Verstappen and Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez have blasted the “insane” idea of a driver salary cap. Everyone is making a lot more money, including, of course, the organisation, the teams, and then everyone is becoming profitable. “And then, suddenly, the drivers, who actually make the show and risk their lives, and their, of course, their lives at stake while driving, they suddenly should be capped, and for me, that just makes no sense.”. Verstappen’s Red Bull team-mate and nearest title rival this season, Perez, is in agreement that the guys “putting the show together” shouldn’t have their earnings capped – especially with the popularity of the sport sky-rocketing. The Mexican said: “The drivers are the one risking their lives out there, putting the show together, you know?. Everyone is making the most money ever, so why you should you cut the drivers?.
