How much do F1 drivers earn??

How much money do F1 drivers like Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso, Ralf Schumacher, Jenson Button, Felipe Massa, Michael Schumacher (well Lewis Hamilton is not on yet) earn? Well take a look and see..

The real salaries are never revealed, but that wouldn’t stop us from speculating, now would it? Here’s one estimate, reportedly from the F1 Racing mag, March issue:
(wrote in June 26, 2007, by

Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari, US$51 million

Ralf Schumacher, Toyota, US$25 million.

Fernando Alonso, McLaren, US$22 million.

Jenson Button, Honda, US$18 million.

Rubens Barrichello, Honda, US$12 million.

Jarno Trulli, Toyota, US$10 million.

Felipe Massa, Ferrari, US$8 million.

Giancarlo Fisichella, Renault, US$7 million.

Mark Webber, Red Bull, US$5 million.

Takuma Sato, Super Aguri, US$4.5 million.

For comparison, here are the estimates from last year:

Michael Schumacher - $62.4m

Ralf Schumacher - $20.4m

Kimi Raikkonen - $14.4m

Juan Pablo Montoya - $13.2m

Rubens Barrichello - $12m

Jarno Trulli - $9.6m

Fernando Alonso - $7.2m

Mark Webber - $7.2m

David Coulthard - $7.2m

Jenson Button - $7.2m

Giancarlo Fisichella - $6m

Nick Heidfeld - $6m

Jacques Villeneuve - $3.6m

Nico Rosberg - $1.8m

Christian Klien - $1.8m

Both these lists don’t include any sponsorship or endorsment deals. Michael Schumacher ended his career at the end of last year as the highest paid F1 driver in the history! And second only to Tiger Woods as the top earner in professional sport. Of course, for a 7 times world champion, that is quite justified!
