What is Lewis Hamilton’s net worth?

Lewis Hamilton has amassed a substantial amount of money during his career


Sir Lewis Hamilton is statistically the most decorated Formula 1 driver in the sport’s history, with seven world championships to his name and 103 race victories.

He is also arguably the most famous, forging a reputation on and off the track that makes him one of the most recognisable figures in the world.

It’s little wonder then that he has amassed a substantial amount of money in an F1 career spanning 16 years and counting.

According to Forbes, his annual earnings in 2022 totalled $65 million, making him the 17th-highest paid athlete of the year, despite enduring his first winless campaign.

That figure was made up of his $57m salary and $8m in endorsements from brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Monster energy drinks, Puma, Sony and Bose.

In 2020, Hamilton equalled Michael Schumacher‘s record of seven F1 world titles and overtook David Beckham as Britain’s richest sportsperson according to The Sunday Times Rich List.

Hamilton is one of sport’s most well-known figures and was even awarded honorary citizenship by the Brazilian government in 2022

Lewis Hamilton net worth 2023

Hamilton‘s annual earnings fell in 2022 compared to 2021, but his net worth rose by £40m ($48m) to £300m ($361m) according to The Sunday Times.

That puts him well outside the top 250 richest people in the world, but among the wealthiest when it comes to sport, and unrivalled in F1.

Now 38, Hamilton has also hinted he could yet race well into his 40s, so there’s no knowing how much wealth he will amass before he hangs up his helmet.

His rumoured multi-year contract extension with Mercedes is reportedly set to include a bumper pay increase that would once again see him become F1’s highest-paid driver, ahead of Max Verstappen of Red Bull.
