    1. Formula 1 teams have hundreds of millions of dollars for their budgets, motogp is no where near that.
    2. See Romain Grosjean and tell me they’re over paid

    MotoGP is bush league up against F1.

    Consider Austin, which is F1's biggest event, they sold out the facility w/ 440,000 tickets @ $300+ a piece.
    MotoGP tickets are still $99 for the weekend and they can't even sell 1/3 the tickets.

    That's $132 million vs $15 million in just ticket revenue. F1 is just a much bigger show.

    Just announced that USGP tickets are going on sale soon. $475 for GA 3 Day. That definitely prices me out.

    But his rookie teammate outscored him this year. So does George deserve a raise?

    Absolutely and it's highly probable that it was written into his contact if he did so.

    That's what bonuses are for. Mercedes will have him on the cheap until his next contract.

    Not even a mention of Gordon Murray. Lol. Long time grudges there.

    Haven't you seen the previous interview they did about Gordon Murray? Not surprised that they don't care to mention him. :D

    I've seen them. I know that the hate runs strong in that river. Amuses me nonetheless
