I was actually taken aback when I first heard it, I was not watching the tv screen at the time. When I backed it up and watched it again, it was clear why he said that and probably what he ment too.
He actually said" I don't get my my legs so high because I am not a women. At the same time David Coulthard was trying to pull his leg up to show the viewers something. I think Seb was trying to say he can't raise his leg like that because he is not a " vegas show girl". I think his english is not as good as his german!
interesting stats from Bahrain
Good catch. Yes, I quoted one of the lower figures I found and there are lots higher. I suspect he's at $20M US or so with everything factored in. Not too shabby. Of course there are some drivers who make essentially nothing and/or are required to bring sponsorship of their own too, so not every driver is making a killing.
As a tangent, it was interesting to see the old Weber in the last race.... the widest car in the paddock. I'm not in favor of lots of penalties, but I've never seen a race with so much wild swerving to block. This is a wreck waiting to happen.
That is a very optomistic viewpoint, good on ya.
That's a surprise. I like him, but he's not worth that much.
They could have Kovalinen for a third of the money. Or probably 1/10 th because he'd be happy to get the seat, and likely better results, and probably a better team player too.
I looked at the numbers from Crash Net and they have 45M for Kimi in 2009 from Ferrari! :huh 30M for Alonso this year, 10M for V3ttel... If that is the case IMHO Ferrari is overpaying and Red Bull is getting a f'n good deal... So I don't really believe any of it.
On speed last year Matchet said Kimi was on a bonus system getting x dollars per point and they worked it out to about 10M. That makes a bit more sense but who knows... I think we will never really know what the drivers get paid. If I am not mistaken Shumi said in an interview when he was at Ferrari that he made more money with endorsments than anything else. If Kimi was ever worth 45M, Shumi would have been worth at least 2 or 3 times that.
Any way you look at it, it's a shit load of coin to drive a glorified go kart around in circles!
F1 wages took a huge hit a few years ago. That Kimi/Ferrari number was an outlier. Won't be repeated for a long time, I would guess.
I've also read that Vettel does not have "representation", so he does all his own contract negotiations, which could explain his (relatively) lackluster salary.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
...that being said, I'd take it any day...<o></o>
interesting... and they seem to be doing pretty well this year
hot off the press for WildAnCrazy....
Nice guys finish last, isn't that what they say
Or at least behind their teammate
Do you have his poster on your bedroom wall? Not often you see such a man-crush.
(as Greg hides the Kimi poster....)
F1: Wolff - Brawn Staying Mercedes Team Boss
Ross Brawn is likely to remain team boss at Mercedes moving forward...
Sounds like Ross is on his way out.
That's usually what an endorsement at this time in the drama means.
coupled with Paddy Lowe's arrival and the fact that 50% of the team will be working on the 2014 car starting next month.
shame really.. but I don't think Ross has anything to prove to anyone at this point. Maybe he'll be the new Bernie?
