Max Verstappen will have to pay almost $1 Million to the FIA before the 2023 F1 season starts.

Each year drivers have to pay a fee for the super license they own. It is like a renewal fee that each of the 20 drivers has to pay. This year the fee will comprise a base value of $11,178. However, this base value will be added on by $2,257 per point scored in the 2022 season.

Now, Max Verstappen finished the 2022 season with a remarkable 454 points to his name. This means that the Dutchman will have to pay $1,036,158 as a bill for his super license in 2023 – a record-breaking figure.

Accordingly, each driver will have to pay their own set of fees. Here is a full list of what each driver will have to pay:

Charles Leclerc – $706,240
Sergio Perez – $699,470
George Russell – $631,759
Carlos Sainz – $566,316
Lewis Hamilton – $552,745
Lando Norris – $286,473
Esteban Ocon – $218,765

Nyck de Vries – $15,691
Nico Hülkenberg – $11,117
Oscar Piastri – $11,117
Logan Sargeant – $11,177

Three new drivers will join the grid this year – Nico Hulkenberg, Oscar Piastri, and Logan Sargeant. Max Verstappen and Red bull are still looking as hot favorites in 2023 until and unless Ferrari and Mercedes can cover up the gap. The penalty imposed on Red bull by the FIA can work in favor of its rivals.
