How much is Lewis Hamilton worth? Lewis Hamilton salary 2022

Find out what Lewis Hamilton's net worth is and how much he will earn in the 2022 Formula 1 season


Lewis Hamilton is statistically the greatest Formula 1 driver of all-time, with seven world championships, 103 wins and 103 pole positions to his name during his 15 years in the sport, but how much money does Hamilton earn and what is Hamilton‘s net worth?

Hamilton has been racing in F1 since 2007, making his debut at the Australian Grand Prix for McLaren when he went around the outside of teammate Fernando Alonso at the first corner on his way to a maiden podium.

Just five races later, Hamilton won his first Grand Prix at the 2007 Canadian GP in Montreal, where he also took a maiden pole position.

Having narrowly lost the 2007 world championship to Kimi Raikkonen, he dramatically won his first title a year later by famously passing Timo Glock on the last lap of the season-ending Brazilian GP to deny Felipe Massa the championship.

Despite not winning another title at McLaren, Hamilton continued to pick up at least one victory in each season, an accolade he has astonishingly maintained up until 2021.

The British driver made a shock move to Mercedes in 2013, replacing Michael Schumacher to become Nico Rosberg‘s teammate.

It’s at Mercedes where Hamilton has made history and picked up many records by winning a further six drivers’ championships with the Silver Arrows and amassing more than a century of career wins and pole positions.

How much does money Lewis Hamilton earn?

Mercedes announced Hamilton had signed a new two-year contract during the 2021 Austrian GP to keep him at the team until 2023.

The deal reportedly will see Hamilton earn an annual salary of £30 million ($37.5m) for the 2022 F1 season, plus bonuses for his performances.

It means Hamilton and his current teammate George Russell will be Mercedes‘ driver line-up for the 2023 season.

What is Lewis Hamilton’s net worth?

Hamilton is the most successful driver in Formula 1‘s 72-year history with the most wins, podiums and pole positions.

In 2020, Hamilton was named the richest sports star from the United Kingdom, after winning a record-equalling seventh F1 world championship.

As of 2022, Hamilton‘s net worth is over £280 million ($350m) with multiple financial rewards off the track for his on track success.

Lewis Hamilton’s sponsors

Hamilton‘s success has led to some major sponsorship deals during his F1 career. In 2021, Forbes reported he made £8.8 million ($11m) thanks to his off-track earnings.

The 37-year-old has put pen to paper with numerous sponsors including: Monster Energy, Puma, Sony, Tommy Hilfiger, L’Oreal, Bose, and IWC.
