We are almost halfway through the Formula One season and boy it has been an exciting last few races. Yes, the Austrian Grand Prix was the best of all. While the drivers of these cars are no more than superhumans compared to us normal humans. It is really the younger lot currently that is performing really well and impressing us on the track. But do you know how much is an F1 driver paid for the entire season?
Well, compared to some drivers who are performing extremely well compared to how much they have been paid. Let us take a look at the salaries of F1 drivers for the 2019 season.
