It may not be accurate numbers from drivers’ current contracts, but the compilation is a fair assessment on what this year’s grid will earn from their respective teams.

There are no real surprises at the top of the list with Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel taking in a staggering $98 million per year between them.


Further down the list there are some interesting figures, with some newer drivers earning more money than you’d imagine.

Jolyon Palmer, for example, makes $1 million per year after only one season with Renault, in comparison to Carlos Sainz and Daniil Kvyat, who earn $750,000 each and have more Formula One experience than the Briton.

What do you think of the latest salary figures?
