Red Bull reportedly cutting employees fat bonus checks for winning world championships
According to reports, each of the 500+ staff members at the team's headquarters in Milton Keynes, England, will receive at least £10,000 (~$16k), but that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Some senior staff members stand to rake in up to £42k ($67k), while Sebastian Vettel – the driver who took home the top prize – is expected to get €3 million, equivalent to over $4 million in American terms.
With Mateschitz many times over a billionaire and the team waiting for nearly $100 million in purse winnings for the titles, the team can easily afford the bonuses, and are certainly most deserving.
