If we can believe the list compiled by Business Book GP and published on crash.net
, Webber makes a little more than double that figure at current exchange rates: 10 million euro, no less. Same as Vettel.
However another source has claimed they are each eligible for 1M euro bonuses for each win (and less for lesser placings). IIRC Webber won twice last year. So that's about $15 million, plus placings, plus endorsements.
They must like his telemetry at Red Bull. Or he has pictures they don't want us to see.
