Forbes, the respected American business magazine, has named Lewis Hamilton the highest-earning driver in formula one.

In its annual top 100 ranking of the world’s highest-paid sports stars, the reigning triple world champion came in 11th with $46 million earned through his contract with Mercedes, bonuses and endorsements.

The list was dominated by football, basketball, tennis and golf stars, with Cristiano Ronaldo right at the top with his incredible annual haul of $88 million.

After Hamilton, F1’s next representative is Sebastian Vettel and his $41 million, followed by Fernando Alonso whose $36.5m was good enough for 24th place.

Just scraping into the top 100 was championship leader Nico Rosberg, with his $21 million earning him the 98th spot, beating only baseball’s Carl Crawford and Buster Posey.
