F1 Drivers “Lottery” Salaries Revealed
How much do F1 drivers earn? That is the question. Lewis Hamilton is at the top of the F1 drivers earning peak. Hamilton commands a reputed $57m per year.
Vettel is the second highest earning driver who commands a reputed $45m. And Ferrari can easily afford it.
Daniel Ricciardo’s move from Red Bull to Renault significantly increased his salary.
Red Bull paid Ricciardo $6m in 2018. Renault will be paying the Aussie $18m for 2019. No wonder he smiles so often.
The lowest paid driver on the grid is Alexzander Albon who will be paid $170,000 by Torro Rosso. Because Torro Rosso can’t afford much more.
