While I work my a$$ off I feel like I'm robbed , because 50% = 6 months of the year that I work for the Belgian government !
In other words , get a job in Belgium for one year and you get a 6 month paycheck the rest goes to the Belgian government.......'
Mate . Welcome to Belgium !
That's why MAX is now not Belgian , not Dutch , but a Monegasque and he pays zero taxes.
Honestly , if I had the chance I would do the same in a heartbeat . Sure I have 'some money , but sadly not enough to be a Monegasque .

God Bless America and Monaco !
As I understand it, the flag he flies at the race has nothing to do with his taxation, it's is place of residence that matters, which is why he "lives" in Monaco yet flies a Dutch flag.

The US taxes foreign income even if you live outside of the country, so if Sargent decided to take up residence in Monaco, he'd still be responsible to pay tax for all of his earnings (minus a small bit of credt, I think it's like 100Kish)...

Christian Horner in one of his most recent interviews :

Christian do you already know how the 2024 RB20 will be like ?
Will it be so dominant as in the 2023 season ?
Will it look much different ?

Christian : Well , the car won't change much in 2024 .
The car will come in blue , red and yellow !

Hopefully the second car will come without the #11 on it.

Give me a home in a semi rural setting on flat ground with countryside and woods close by anytime...and an Army base not far away for added security
My friend , they invited MAX .But he finished 30 seconds before dinner started !

It may well do in '25 but there is the Slim money factor, tons of it. RBR has amassed a pile of points and look how much the entry fee for '24 is costing them because of that so Checo's second place and fewer points...I'm looking at the math.

With that in mind the outcome would probably be the same as on the karting tracks back then, in the end Chas's best bet may be to stick with the devil he knows.

if anyone wants to know how long it takes Ferrari strategy team to respond,

well it took them one whole week after the SC came out in Vegas to decide to pit CLC during a safety car. but by the time the memo was sent out, the engineers thought it was meant for Carlos Sainz, so Carlos was waiting for the SC the entire race, but the memo was probably meant for CLC.

there you go.

happy 2024.

(meanwhile Carlos should get his pit strategy by Christmas if all goes well)

2023 was an expensive year for Red Bull Racing. Performance bonus system for drivers/team/staff. As they have won 21 out of 22 races and 5 out of 6 Sprint, it must have been bonus galore for all at RBR.

If a sponsor committed to pay all performance bonuses, he may have sighed when Max won yet another race or Sprint.
