Toto Wolff earns more than most F1 drivers
While Lewis Hamilton is the highest-paid F1 driver, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff is high earner as well. In a drivers salaries list, Wolff would be ranked 5th, even ahead of his protege Valtteri Bottas.
Lewis Hamilton signed a new contract with Mercedes last season to make him the highest-paid Formula One racer. The five-time world champion ousted Sebastian Vettel from the top earning position, while Daniel Ricciardo breaking through with Renault into top 3.
The Austrian newspaper Osterreich reveals on the basis of the annual balance sheets of Mercedes that the annual salary of team boss Toto Wolff is expected to reach a dizzying 8 million euros. This means that the Mercedes boss would be ranked fifth in the top-rated F1 earners, only behind Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen.
