Max Verstappen has zoomed away in the Forbes Formula One earnings list just as he’s raced away in this year’s championship. A new list of F1 driver salaries has revealed Verstappen’s $55million [£44.65m] salary is over five times that of his Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez. The Forbes list has Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in third with annual earnings of $24m [£19.5m] and Lando Norris of McLaren fourth on $20m [£16.24m]. Carlos Sainz of Ferrari ranks fifth and only then do we find Perez, whose salary is measured by Forbes at $10m [£8.12m], well short of Verstappen. Verstappen, with 12 race wins this season, has 374 points to the 223 of Perez, who won races in Saudi Arabia and Azerbaijan in the early rounds of the campaign.
