F1 » Verstappen gets 2015 Toro Rosso drive

I have my doubts about whether the intense scrutiny and pressure cooker environment of F1 is the place to develop a 16 year olds driving talent. We have seen it before when drivers get promoted too quickly. It should be remembered that Dan was quite a bit older and more mature (having driven for HRT for half a season under no pressure just to get acclimatised) when he got his eventual start at Toro Rosso. It is a fine line between succeeding and falling by the way side in F1. JEV was very competitive with Dan at TR, but now JEV looks like he will be lucky to get a drive next season whilst Dan looks like he has done enough to retain his drive at RBR and secure a big pay rise.

F1 » F1 2014 driver salaries published – but who earns most?

Dan is getting the equivalent of $1 million Aussie per annum, which is comparable to a top tier commercial law firm partner, so in most normal people's language he is getting paid very well, it just looks ordinary when you compare it to the extraordinary salaries that some of the others are on. In the 60's they took all the risk and got paid relatively modestly. Now days the risks are greatly reduced and they are paid telephone numbers. Seems somewhat incongrous.
