Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner is expected to "rubber-stamp bonus payments" to the team’s 550 staff of Â£10,000 ($16,000) each. Senior staff "are thought to have been paid up to four times more," and Vettel could receive more than Â£3M ($4.8M) "as a reward for his 11 race wins so far this season."
Because of new rules introduced this season, Red Bull’s constructor victory "comes with a massive penalty." Every point won will cost them $6,000 in entry fees next season. The team already has 513 points with two GPs still to run, which means it will have to pay at least Â£2M ($3.2M) "to enter next year’s championship." LONDON TIMES
