Who is the richest Formula 1 driver?

Drivers in F1 can earn millions of dollars a year competing in the top tier of motorsport, and with endorsements and other ventures raking in the cash on top of their salary, they are among some of the highest paid sportspeople in the world.

But who are the wealthiest F1 drivers out there?

We break down the top 10 richest drivers in Formula 1.

10. Nico Rosberg

Former Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg did well in his short stint in F1 after he retired following his one and only world championship victory in the 2016 season.

The German racer has a net worth of $30 million and has launched numerous other ventures since his departure from F1, including the Rosberg Extreme E team with which he will go up against his old rival Lewis Hamilton in the new electric off-road series.

9. Sebastian Vettel

Aston Martin driver Sebastian Vettel has been in Formula 1 for over a decade, during which period he has accumulated a net worth of around $50 million.

The German driver currently has a deal with the British team worth around $17 million with a three year contract in addition to multiple sponsors.

8. David Coulthard

David Coulthard had a highly successful career in Formula 1, winning 13 Grand Prix, and the Scotsman's post-racing career has been just as lucrative with a series of high-profile broadcasting gigs.

His net worth is estimated at around $70 million, including a series of properties and hotels in London, Switzerland and Monaco.

7. Jenson Button

Jenson Button had a long career in F1, during which he won a world championship title with Brawn GP in the team’s only year as a constructor in the sport.

The Brit has an estimated net worth of around $105 million including a luxury yacht, and he still regularly works in the sport as a pundit.

6. Eddie Irvine

Northern Irish racer Eddie Irvine spent a decade in Formula 1, racing alongside Michael Schumacher at Ferrari as well as for Jordan and Jaguar.

Following his F1 career Irvine moved to property investment, and he owns a portfolio of developments across the globe. His net worth is estimated at around $180 million and he is the owner of an $18 million superyacht formerly owned by Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.

5. Alain Prost

Four-time F1 world champion Alain Prost is among the most famous former racing drivers, with the Frenchman considered one of the best to have ever competed.

He is also one of the richest drivers having accumulated a net worth of around $185 million with a strong investment career after his time on the grid.

4. Kimi Raikkonen

Still going strong as an F1 driver at the age of 41 with two decades in the sport behind him, the Iceman Kimi Raikkonen has had plenty of time to make some money with a net worth of around $200 million.

The former Ferrari driver, who won the world championship in 2007, was named the second-highest paid athlete in the world in 2009.

3. Fernando Alonso

Spaniard Fernando Alonso won two world championships with Renault in 2005 and 2006, and remains one of the most successful drivers to have ever raced in F1.

His net worth is currently estimated at around $220 million and is set to climb higher after he announced his comeback to F1 with Alpine for the 2021 season.

2. Lewis Hamilton

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton has the most wins of any driver in F1 history, and his success on track has been matched by financial rewards off it as he accumulated an estimated net worth of $280 million.

In addition to his reported $30 million salary with Mercedes for the 2021 season, Hamilton has a number of sponsorship deals with brands ranging from Monster Energy to Tommy Hilfiger.

1:Michael Schumacher

Probably the most famous name to ever grace the Formula 1 paddock, Michael Schumacher had a legendary career mostly with Ferrari where he won four consecutive world championships and was the second-highest earning sports person in the world in his prime.

The Schumacher brand continued to grow once he retired from racing after a brief comeback with Mercedes in 2010, with his net worth currently estimated at around $780 million.

Sadly, the driver suffered a head injury while skiing in 2013.
