Further solidifying his financial standing, Wolff holds the dual role of CEO and owns a significant 33% stake in the Mercedes F1 team.

2. Christian Horner (Red Bull) - Net Worth: £40m

Red Bull's Horner finds himself a distant second to Wolff, with a reported net worth of £40 million. Horner has overseen Red Bull's rise to become a major force in F1 and witnessed the team capture an impressive seven drivers' titles and six constructors' championships.

3. Alessandro Alunni Bravi (Stake F1 Team) - Net Worth: £4m

Rounding out the top three is Stake's Alessandro Alunni Bravi. The Italian, trained as a lawyer, boasts a successful career managing teams in Formula 2.

He was named the new F1 team representative for the Stake squad last year, working under chief executive Andreas Seidl.
