That's what I think in his initial year,like Charles,he would have a 'starter salary' then progress to space shot pay when progressing effectively.
Agreed. And given his skill level, he probably could have earned quite a bit that way while driving a race winning car.

I read that after Leclerc's win at Monza, there is speculation his salary could double or even triple for next year.
