We always get some sense of what the top athletes in the world are taking home in terms of bacon. But seeing it laid out in plain numbers is an experience that never fails to stagger. Especially in the case of F1.

GP Fans recently revealed what the top-earning F1 drivers are taking home this 2020 season. Lewis Hamilton is – unsurprisingly – the highest-paid F1 driver with a salary nearing US$80,000,000. And our very own Danny Ricc comes in at third – though the gap between him and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel who currently occupies the second position is… considerable.
