Both Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz have both agreed to take voluntary pay cuts during the pandemic crisis that is caused by coronavirus.
The first 8 races of the Formula 1 2020 season have been cancelled or postponed to a later date the friendly teammates took the pay cut as some of the McLaren team fall on financial pressure due to lack of track action.
