Red Bull F1 team to pay nearly €2 million to renew both Verstappen’s and Perez’s Super License

After a mind-blowing 2024 for the Red Bull F1 team, they are nearly on a €2 million debt. The reason is Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez, with a total of 575 points and 285 points, respectively. Yes, the points that both drivers have scored in the 2024 season have cost the team nearly €2 million. But how?

Let me clear up all your doubts and confusion. First, to be a Formula 1 racer, a driver needs to have a super license, which costs thousands of dollars. Likewise, every F1 driver has a super license that expires at the end of the season, which also needs to be renewed. Well, to renew a super license, there is a fixed amount of €10,400 set by the FIA, plus €2,100 per point scored in the past season.

As of the 2024 season, Verstappen and Perez scored a total of 575 and 285 points, respectively. As a result, the team needs to pay €1.22 million to renew Verstappen’s super license and €609,000 to renew Perez’s super license.

Now you might have thought, Why are the teams paying the amount and not the driver? Well, when signing an F1 contract, the drivers make sure that the amount of the super license will always be paid by the team. Also, most of the time, the teams make sure that they will be paying the driver’s super license cost and not the driver to have a great relationship among both parties.
