THE salaries for all 20 Formula One stars have been revealed, with Lewis Hamilton the top earner pocketing £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 Vettel.
The German, who will quit Ferrari at the end of this season, takes in £37m per year – with the lowest earners pocketing just £175,000.
It’s a massive jump down to third place though, with Daniel Ricciardo – who will move to McLaren at the end of this season – way back on £16m.
Red Bull star Max Verstappen is the only other star to break the £10m per season barrier, on £14m.
And just seven other stars, including Carlos Sainz and Kimi Raikkonen, earn over £1m a year – with Vettel’s current Ferrari pal Charles LeClerc earning £8m.
The remaining nine racers all pocket between £175,000 and £900,000 per season.
Willilams pair George Russell and Nicholas Latifi – along with Alfa Romeo racer Antonio Giovinazzi – are the joint-lowest earners.
McLaren youngster Lando Norris is not much higher either, on £200,000 per season.
