In the wake of Lewis Hamilton’s reputed £100m pay deal, Max Mosley has given F1 drivers’ inflated salaries a good hard slapping.
‘Max thinks these drivers need to be very firmly smacked to their senses,’ said a source close to the former FIA president. ‘He feels strongly that someone needs to whip them into shape.’
‘Max has had enough of dressing up this issue,’ our insider continued. ‘And now he really wants it to be tied down.’
‘There is no one in the sport who is ready to give the drivers a hard kick on the bottom,’ our mole concluded. ‘But Max believes it’s time for them to stop thinking about money in the spank. Sorry, bank.’
