Formula 1 driver salaries 2020: What Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel get paid
Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton is once again the best paid driver on the grid, as he is still within his mega contract that was agreed until the conclusion of the 2020 campaign.
The top three remains unchanged, with Hamilton being joined by Sebastian Vettel in second and Daniel Ricciardo in third, with the Australian joining Renault from Red Bull in a huge deal prior to last season.
Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc have both received significant increases, however, with Max being rewarded for his superb drives with Red Bull, while Leclerc earned his big move to Ferrari and has been successful in the process.
The disparity from the bottom to the top of the grid is clear, with the Williams duo of George Russell and Nicholas Latifi miles from the huge salaries collected by the drivers at the top of the order.
Here's the list, which is collected using projected 2019 figures as a guide.
