Ten Formula 1 teams will share $ 965 million in commercial revenue that will be distributed throughout this year by promoter Bernie Ecclestone.
The Formula One Management (FOM) company has planned nine entries throughout the season, between March and November, and a final payment at the beginning of 2017, in a distribution that is established by mixing the results of the last three championships and the bonuses. traded by the largest and most veteran teams.
The American team Haas, which debuted this year, will have no business income - not even a welcome bonus - despite the fact that its arrival in Formula 1 is an important point in raising attention for the sport in America.
As in previous years, Scuderia Ferrari, present in Formula 1 since 1950, is the team with the highest income: 192 million dollars, which represents 20% of the total. Current double world champion, Mercedes-AMG will receive 171 million dollars, thanks to a bonus of 35 million for obtaining two consecutive titles.
The third team by revenue will be Red Bull Racing, 144 million dollars, ahead of Williams (87 million), which has finished third the last two years. The calculation of this distribution led two independent teams, Force India and Sauber, to denounce in 2015 for unfair competition before the European Commission.
Since then there have been "talks" on this issue between the Commission and the FOM, Ecclestone said during the Bahrain Grand Prix.
The turnover of Formula 1 was 1.900 million dollars in 2015, with 19 races on the calendar, for a result of 1.400 million distributed to the teams.
