Three-time world champion Max Verstappen recently agreed that he was earning more than Hamilton, a fact that is likely not to be true from 2025.

That's because of a Ferrari promise to invest in some of Hamilton's projects, including his Mission 44 project, which seeks to reimagine the future and empower young people from underserved communities.

Ferrari chairman John Elkann is known to share a good off-track relationship with Hamilton, and The Qualifier are reporting that the American was more willing to invest in the 39-year-old's endeavours than Mercedes.

"Elkann promises to embrace and champion Hamilton's diversity and inclusion initiatives, including Mission 44," they say.

"The potential joint investment fund with Exor could contribute $250 million to Hamilton’s future projects on top of his compensation for his on-track services, making his total deal with Ferrari an astonishing $400 million."
