Taking the piss
If you competed in Formula 1, you'd expect to be highly paid, right? I mean 19 events all over the world, racing at 170mph, putting yourself at risk, doing publicity etc etc. And you would be right. Lewis Hamilton earned $16.5M last year. Not too shabby. Now let's put that in perspective: adulterer and alleged golfer Tiger Woods earned $90.5M last year. That's taking the piss. He hits a ball with a stick and gets 8 times as much as the world's top paid racing driver? It does seem a little unbalanced especially when you compare the workload. Methinks Tiger Woods needs to be taken down a peg or two. He's not worth $90,000 let alone $90M, not by any stretch of the imagination.
