Lewis Hamilton’s Staggering F1 Salary Revealed As Top Five Drivers Named

Published

on

A list of top formula one drivers and their salaries has seven-time British champion Sir Lewis Hamilton leading the way according to Spanish outlet Marca. Hamilton, who was beaten to last year’s F1 championship on the last lap of the final race by rival Max Verstappen, looks to have at least pipped Red Bull’s man to the top spot in earnings.

 

 

The much anticipated 2022 F1 season will see rule changes in the sport make it even more competitive and while Hamilton has been quiet since the devastating end to last year’s season, he is expected to come back fighting harder than ever to claim a record eighth title.

And he certainly won’t be short of financial reward for doing so.
With an expected base salary of 35milion euros (£29million) Sir Lewis will increase his previous contract by some distance.

Current champion Verstappen lags some way behind with a base pay of 22million euros (£18million).

 

 

Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo make up the remainder of the top five earners, with salaries around £10million each.

Hamilton has a further year left on his contract with Mercedes although there have been rumours he may consider retiring after his last-day heartbreak.
Although Verstappen trailed his British rival in terms of salary, his championship win will have resulted in huge bonuses.
Those could have totalled anything up to £10million.

 

 

The two drivers experienced an astonishing rivalry over last year’s racing season with the pair coming to blows on the track on regular occasions.
It came to a crescendo at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix when Hamilton was beaten at the death following race director Michael Masi’s decision to allow Verstappen to pull level with him for a one-lap shootout after a safety car had come onto the track following a crash.

Earlier this week, former driver Ralf Schumacher criticised Hamilton for not attending a glitzy end of season ceremony. Michael’s younger brother said that 37 year-old Hamilton’s decision not to turn up to the event.

 

 

He said: ‘It’s not at all fair to Max Verstappen to skip the gala.”

Schumacher also said Sebastian Vettel was the ideal replacement for Mercedes should Hamilton choose to retire.
