How much does a driver get for winning the Spanish GP ? And the team ?
Does the prize fund vary from race to race ? In a lot of other sports
the prize fund is part of the coverage eg golf, tennis, Indi500.
But I dont think Ive heard it mentioned on race coverage.

Prize money???  No, no, no... the *teams* pay Mega Bucks Bernie for the
pleasure of taking part.  The aim is to get constructors points.  The more
you have at the end of the year the more of a discount you get for haulage
the following year.  Yes, they have to pay Bernie to shift the gear to the
GP sites as well.
