  2. The remaining 50% of the money goes to the formula 1 group and shareholders.
  3. The 23.7 % of the Formula 1 Prize money fund is divided equally among the top 10 teams.
  4.  All the teams get the transportation cost form the Formula 1.
  5. The 23.7% of the prize money fund goes to the constructors on the basis of how they finish in the constructor’s points table at the end of the season.
  6. Ferrari gets the extra 2.5% because of their special contact with the formula 1.
  7. The team that finishes outside the top 10 gets $10 million for participating in the tournament.

How much F1 prize money is hurting smaller teams?

Formula one brought nearly generate $2 billion in revenue, yet unequal revenue situation still threatens the future of small teams. Despite being second on the constructor’s list, Ferrari earned the sum of $21 million more in prize money.

More than half of Ferrari’s total amount came from bonuses ($117 million). Renault despite finishing above Red Bull racing in Constructor point, CVC doesn’t reward them any bonus. Other teams like Haas, Williams, Racing Point, Sauber, and Toro Rosso also received no bonuses of any kind.

This leaves the teams in a financial crises situation. Things are not looking good for smaller teams. This situation can be avoided if CVC introduced a new more equal revenue distribution model.
