Looks like Max Chilton made the right decision coming to the USA to race.

Max Chilton may have finished Sunday's Indianapolis 500 near the middle of the pack, but the British driver might just be laughing all the way to the bank writes Mike Larson of AutoWeek.

Chilton, an Indy 500 rookie, took home $346,743 for his Indy finish. Comparatively, his salary from Marussia for the 2014 F1 season was $291,047.

In two seasons in Formula One, Chilton competed in 35 races for Marussia in 2013 and 2014, never led a lap, and failed to score a point.
