Salaries of F1's top earners revealed


//

Here’s another reason to question the path you’ve chosen.

With the Australian GP only days away, several F1 drivers will land in Melbourne gunning to take out the first race of the year.

But there’ll only be a small few who will benefit from the perks of luxury travel, due to their huge pay packets.

It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton is the highest paid star, with the British driver scoring a huge base wage along with bonuses and sponsorship deals.

According to The Sun, Hamilton gets paid a touch under $AUD74 million a year and recently signed a two-year deal.

He sits on top of the sport’s highest earners, well above the likes of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo who’ll officially be turning out for Renault.

Vettel isn’t too far behind Hamilton, with the German earning just over $AUD56 million a season on a deal that will expire next season.

While Ricciardo has tripled his earning power since signing with Renault, with the Australian taking home just under $AUD49 million a year.

His old teammate, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen is fair way behind the top earners but is by no means poor, earning just $AUD18.5 million a season.

Sitting behind him is Hamilton’s Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas, who has entered the final year of his current contract which is worth around $AUD12 million a season.
