    Is it a set amount? Like a million a point? Does anyone know or is it all speculation? Thanks.

    I've always heard it's a closely-held secret as dictated by the Concorde agreement. On one hand, you don't get the sense from watching the races that make-or-break money hangs on every point. But at the same time, you rarely hear teams speak up against adding races or replacing some with those paying higher sanctioning fees. I'd really like to know as well.

    If I remember correctly...
    One more consideration is that in the past if a team scored at least one point in the season the next year's equipment travel expenses were paid for. Not points = no travel bucks.
    I think that Mclarens fine of $100 mil was just covered by their points pay out.

    Wow. But if you think about it, that could explain how they derived the amount of the fine.

    It can't be that much if Ferrari keep putting Luca B in the car.

    There is on very good reason why Ferrari would do well to get a better second driver. The difference between places in the Constructors’ Championship are worth millions of dollars ok

    Luca's ego is priceless.
