    Not quite sure how accurate some of those salaries are. The actual $ amounts are very closely guarded.

    Ricciardo would also receive bonuses for wins & podiums.

    Vettel has just won 4 championships on the trot! i reckon that has a bit of cred with your typical F1 team management.

The cars are now radically different with different engines and different characteristics and all of a sudden two quick guys are struggling. I think there could be number of reasons for this, inlcuding:-

    1/ certain drivers style suits some cars better than other styles ( back in Mika/Coulthard days at McLaren, Mika preferred an over steering car, where as DC preferred understeer, whilst there is certain amount of adjustment/tuning the crew can do with a chassis there are other issues which are inherent in the design and no amount of chassis tuning will fix)

    i read an interview with mario andretti, commenting on this year's F1, and you will be pleased to know he said exactly the same things about some drivers adapting better than others, as you have said above. coincidence, or.... what? are you hiding something from us??
