    F1 drivers salaries

    Very interesting to see the huge differences and how the championship results have nothing to do with the amount.

    Vettel gets 4 times what Kimi gets.

    Alonso in spite of not winning a title in 10 years and not on a team that is able to fight for a title is the highest payed driver by far, 33% more than even 2nd best paid Hamilton. While his rookie teammate Vandoorne gets less than 1% of it   Smiley

    Vestappen only 3 million? that should be changing soon IMO.

    Ricciardo almost the same as Massa, really?

     

    1. Fernando Alonso (McLaren): $40 million including bonuses
    2. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes): $31 million plus bonuses
    3. Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari): $30 million plus bonuses
    4. Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes): $8.5 million including bonuses
    5. Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari): $7 million plus bonuses
    6. Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull): $6.5 million plus bonuses
    7. Felipe Massa (Williams): $5 million
    8. Nico Hulkenberg (Renault F1): $3 million
    9. Max Verstappen (Red Bull): $3 million plus bonuses
    10. Sergio Perez (Force India): $2.5 million
    11. Romain Grosjean (Haas F1): $1.5 million
    12. Kevin Magnussen (Haas F1): $1 million
    13. Jolyon Palmer (Renault F1): $1 million
    14. Daniil Kvyat (Toro Rosso): $750,000
    15. Carlos Sainz (Toro Rosso): $750,000
    16. Stoffel Vandoorne (McLaren): $300,000 plus bonuses
    17. Marcus Ericsson (Sauber): $285,000
    18. Esteban Ocon (Force India): $185,000
    19. Pascal Wehrlein (Sauber): $150,000
    20. Lance Stroll (Williams): Unknown

    Re: F1 drivers salaries

    Compared to Vettel, Raikkonen is a bargain. angel 

    The Toro Rosso team doesn't make any sense in my opinion but to each his own I guess. The salaries aren't that big and Red Bull certainly provides the tech, so no harm is done.

    Re: F1 drivers salaries

    Wondering how high the bonuses are for Hamilton and co. I am sure this would change the ranking quite a bit


    Re: F1 drivers salaries

    since it's 80% or more in which Car you are sitting in F1 - I fail to understand why such salaries are still being paid....


    Re: F1 drivers salaries

    They don't want their drivers leave for another team and give all the info 

    They think some of the high paid drivers will help with the development of the car by giving the proper infos 

    They think some drivers will help team spirit 

    The drivers bring also the sponsors ( or some sponsors ) that is probably the biggest cost 

    But, I agree, all that is not worth the price difference between Vettel and Verstappen for example . 

    The problem is , when a good driver comes along, all top team want him. Salaries become bubbles !

    Re: F1 drivers salaries

    Salaries in F1 make no sense. Car matters much more than driver. 


    Re: F1 drivers salaries

    Masa is gone?   Right?

    Max will double his money easy.

    When Bottas went to Mercedes Williams picked up Massa again. 


    Re: F1 drivers salaries

    Verstappen should get a raise!

     


    Re: F1 drivers salaries

    Lance Stroll:  minus $2.0 million (ie, father still paying for his drives...) angry

    Re: F1 drivers salaries

    ...compared to soccer, the back of the grid is really not paid well...

    of course, some people would pay to drive a F1...we have not seen people buying their place in a big league team :-)
