Shanghai winner Sebastian Vettel is "so good and so cheap", the German daily Bild newspaper claims.

Shanghai winner Sebastian Vettel is "so good and so cheap", the German daily Bild newspaper claims.

It is reported that, despite collecting the plaudits in the wake of his Monza (2008) and China wins for Red Bull's F1 teams, the 21-year-old ranks in the bottom-six in terms of driver earnings.

Vettel makes 3.5m euros per season, Bild claims, but the German insists the situation is not unfair.

"The moment money becomes your motivation, you are immediately not as good as someone who is stimulated by passion and internal will," he is quoted as saying.

Moreover, Vettel - with the aid of a single lawyer - negotiated his own contract, as he is not represented by a manager.
