By the numbers, Valtteri Bottas is one of the most successful drivers on the 2023 Formula 1 grid with more wins than everyone except Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso.

And that bank of results didn’t come cheap for Alfa Romeo when they acquired the Finn for the start of the 2022 F1 season.

Bottas has carved out a career as a quick and reliable member of the F1 paddock – valuable commodities in this sport – and now in his eleventh season, his bank balance reflects that.

Bottas will earn a staggaring $10 million in 2023 at Alfa Romeo, enough to make him the seventh-highest-paid driver in F1.

This places him higher than Alonso, George Russell, Esteban Ocon and Oscar Piastri, an impressive amount for someone who’s generally ranked in the bottom half of the field by pundits.

He earns almost a third of what former teammate Hamilton makes, though it’s likely Bottas‘ experience at Mercedes – where he took 10 wins and two world championship second-places – that hikes up his value.

Over the years, Bottas has evolved from being a promising talent to a key player in the championship battles, and his salary is a clear indicator of this evolution.

It’s also five times what his current teammate Zhou Guanyu earns at Alfa Romeo, despite Bottas only leading Zhou by a single point in the championship.

Bottas was reportedly on the same salary at Mercedes, at least in his final year, after replacing Nico Rosberg at the team in a more secondary role alongside Hamilton.

By 2023, Valtteri Bottas has accumulated an impressive net worth of around $30 million.

Much of that comes from his substantial F1 career earnings, but Bottas has also built up a valuable portfolio around that.

With his calm demeanour and Scandinavian charm, Bottas is currently the only driver from Finland on the F1 grid and has leveraged that for brand deals with Polar, Abloy and Insijets.

Bottas also has some expensive souvenirs from his stints at manufacturer teams in the form of a Mercedes GT Black Series and an Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifiglio. Combined they’re worth over $400,000 but both are nowhere near the most valuable item in Bottas‘ garage.

His Ferrari F40, one of the most iconic road cars ever made, is valued at $2,500,000 and is one of just a handful still in existence.

Finally, Bottas has an idyllic Lapland lakeside house and the customary F1 driver Monaco flat that push up his net worth even more.
