LEW BEAUTY Lewis Hamilton by far F1’s top earner on a staggering £42m a year, way ahead of rivals Vettel, Ricciardo and LeClerc

THE salaries for all 20 Formula One stars have been revealed, with Lewis Hamilton the top earner on a truly staggering £42million a year. Mercedes star Hamilton – who tops the Sunday Times’ Rich List – earns well over TWICE as much as every other F1 driver except Sebastian Vettel. The German, who picked Michael Schumacher over Hamilton in the GOAT debate, takes in £37m per year – with the lowest earners pocketing just £175,000. Red Bull driver Max Verstappen, still just 23, is the only other star to break the £10m per season barrier, on £14m. British legend Sir Jackie Stewart said it was ‘hard to justify’ calling Hamilton the greatest.
