Lewis Hamilton secured the 2017 F1 drivers’ championship with 2 races to standby last season, but he is heads into the new campaign as only the second highest-paid F1 driver despite his on-track achievements, according to TSM Sportz.

Fernando Alonso earns $30 Million just behind the second Ferrari ace Kimi Raikkonen. Formula 1 young sensation, Max Verstappen is reportedly set to earn $10 Million more than Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo, although the Australian brought home 32 more points than his younger rival in 2017.
