Wrong. He was paid his basic but not his point bonuses which in Kimi's case was a fair chunk of his money. I haven't read anywhere he's been paid all the money he's owed by Lotus.

Sad attempt to turn the argument around by talking about hunger, that's the kind of idiotic argument RGB would come up with....hmmmm.

He was paid for his entire 2012 season, Bouillier said he was probably the most paid driver if you include his bonuses.
He is complaining about this season.

It's not an idiotic argument at all, I just like to put things into perspective.

I was referring to 2013. He was paid for 2012 as you say but it was late.

Having run my own business and been a consultant/contractor at various times I know what a nightmare it is not to get paid. Now Kimi is not short of a bob or two but it's the general principle of the thing...and this is F1 after all.

I have no idea what Lotus is doing trying to juggle all it's finances into place, but they need some stability, fast. They are in a mess with their drivers and if they can't afford to pay them, I can't see them lasting too much longer as a competetive team..
