Lewis Hamilton's £769,000 Per Week Contract At Mercedes Is Genuinely Mindblowing

F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton put pen to paper on a new mega deal with Mercedes back in July.

The former McClaren man's two-year contract until 2020 is £30 million a year, with a further £10 million available in bonuses.

When you break it down, it's evident that the 33-year old is earning some serious dollar right now.

£4,6000 an hour, £109,000 a day, £3,333,333 a month...that's £40,000,000 a year.


Not only will Hamilton be climbing further up the Forbes rich list and the highest-paid driver in his sport, it also means he'll be pocketing a higher yearly wage than Cristiano Ronaldo.


Which is pretty mental considering his recently revealed Juventus wage.

Commenting on his new deal, Hamilton said:

"It's good to put pen to paper, announce it and then get on with business as usual.


"I have been part of the Mercedes racing family for 20 years and I have never been happier inside a team than I am right now.

"We are on the same wavelength both on and off track - and I am looking forward to winning more in the future and shining even more light on the three-pointed star.

"I'm very confident that Mercedes is the right place to be over the coming years."
