  • FIA license fees

    So the Formula One boys are up in arms due to the new license fees they are going to have to pay to maintain their F1 competition license. The guys used to pay like 1700 euros plus like 450 euros per championship point that they earned. Yeah, that's steep...but.

    FIA changed the fee structure so now they have to pay a 10,000 Euro base fee and 2,000 euros for each championship point earned. Last year's champ Kimi Raikkonen will have to pay 230,000 euros to re-up his license.

    The driver's a threatening a strike because they say the increase is unfair. Sounds like they have a case right?

    Wrong.

    Lewis Hamilton just spent 200,000 british pounds for a VANITY LICENSE PLATE.

    You can drop 200,000 pounds on a license plate, but not that much to continue earning millions of bucks a year?

    Sorry boys.....case dismissed.

    At 200,000 for a "vanity plate"....It is more like an "insanity plate"......or an "arrogancy plate"

    That is absurd...makes me think the FIA is right on the money...

        Call me simple but I think that there sould be a flat fee. Shouldn't matter that you won more the previous yr. And I have no idea how much a euro is worth .

          A Euro is 1.55 US bucks....


          So 230,000 Euro = $345,000.00

              My Nascar mechanics license was $90, and I think the driver's license was something like $150. But that's just the local weekly series, not the big show.

                Another way for someone to Bleed another. I to believe it should be a flat rate.

                  I have mixed felling about this... It is the equivalent of other atheltes who spend their money on cars and women, but we are not as critical... I think there is a more feasible/econimical way to handle it... One that works for the FIA and the drivers. Lower the fee, as the increase is dramatic, where the fee schedule will go up incrimentally over the next 3-5 years.

                      Well if someone told me that I could pay 300k a year to earn 10-15 million a year, I think that's money well spent.

                      Especially if I had 200k lying around to by a license plate with.

                              I think the 250 million dollar budget keeps the riff raff out.

                              I think they can afford a licence.
