Lewis Hamilton’s net worth is amongst the highest in sports athletes all around the globe. Here we look at how much the F1 driver earns.
The 35-year old made his first F1 debut in 2007 with McLaren at the Australian Grand Prix, where he finished second. He went on to break many more records that season, the best season by a debut driver in Formula One.
He had the most consecutive podium finishes from debut (9), the joint most wins in a debut season (4), and the most points in a debut season. Incredibly, he finished runner-up to Kimi Raikkonen in the Driver’s Championship by a solitary point.
In the 2011 season, he got his first win of the season in Chinese Grand Prix and at the end of the season, Lewis secured another victory in Abu Dhabi. This convinced Mercedes to poach Hamilton in 2012, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Went down to Hyde Park today for the peaceful protest and I was so proud to see in person so many people of all races and backgrounds supporting this movement. It was really moving.
