I don't think taking a paycut is the 'ultimate act of humility' (I can think of some other acts that trump that)

And also it's probably not just a paycut. Something will be given in return (privileges)

HAM is not the posterboy for humility. For example when he tried to sue that watchcompany because it's also named Hamilton but was in business for about 100 years even before HAM was born. For me that's more a sign of severe megalomania.
Obviously the judge wasn't impressed and waved HAM goodbye...

OK, I officially don't get it!!!!

First, I'm not attacking HAM or saying MB is forcing him to take a pay cut!!! I'm saying it's a rumored option. It's his decision and I wouldn't fault him whichever path he takes.

Second, why is it dehumanizing to say someone with generational wealth has more options?

Lastly, please stop making assumptions about me because I'm not a HAM fan.

I’m actually disgusted by a lot of his actions but often times I feel as though I’m one of very few voices of reason in here. I don’t care for max or ham’s attitude and life choices. Sure, maybe ultimate act is extreme in all of life, but in the work place it sure seems up there. I wouldn’t focus so much on pedantically trying to vie an argument as I would look at it through your lens and apply to you. No one wants a paycut period. Now, it hasn’t happened and is at this point speculation, so time will truly tell if he deserves any credit.

Others have made assumptions and it’s been obvious, I have not. Different opinions are not assumptions. That said, as stated above, if it happens and you so choose to think so flippantly about sacrifice, I’ll give you my bank routing number and you can redirect the same percentage of your retirement fixed income to me. Let’s hear the song you sing then.

I never said anything about sacrifice!!! You are saying sacrifice.

I never said he would make less money!!! You are saying less money. I didn't

I said the rumor was pay cut + performance based ADDITIONAL PAY which could actually equal a raise. And put MB in a better position to provide a better car.

I said it was a win / win proposition for both parties.

You are obviously not reading my posts and just want a popcorn fight.

Lastest rumor is HAM's next contract will be a team friendly deal a' la Tom Brady (American Football). Pay cut to help MB but laden with performance incentives.

HAM has plenty of money. He should bet on his personal performance and give MB more financial resources to provide the best car possible. Seems like a win win solution for HAM and MB for more championships.
Hammy won’t mentor, but will act as if he is mentoring. Russell should steer clear of hammy.

I enjoy the press conferences, especially how they pair drivers up. It’s a great opportunity to see moments of true character. Today Max and Hammy were asked what track is the most difficult.

Max quickly answered Monaco and Baku (both which he dominated for most or all of the race).

Hammy spent sometime thinking through his answer and he came up with “it’s really a state of mind” which is an odd response, he seemed to appreciate how that answer came across and named Singapore (which of course is the only track they haven’t raced this year).

Based on the foreshadowing of hammys space boots, I expect to see a merc rocket ship this weekend.
