F1’s top 10 best-paid drivers of 2021 revealed with Lewis Hamilton earning way more than title rival Max Verstappen

But even if he doesn’t win the title, the British star, 36, comfortably tops the rich list. In 2021, Hamilton has earned a staggering £47million in wages, bonuses and add-ons, according to Forbes. The Mercedes star earns £40m in wages and is said to have raked in £7m in bonuses this year – with another £4m on the way if he wins the title, SunSport understands. Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc (£9m) sits ahead of Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas (£8m). That means Hamilton earned a staggering £39m MORE than Bottas this year alone. But for now it’s all eyes on Abu Dhabi as Hamilton and Verstappen go toe-to-toe one last time with the title on the line.
