0


Max Verstappen won the French Grand Prix today after a late overtake of Lewis Hamilton. Max races for Red Bull, and at 23, is one of the youngest racers on the track.

Belgian-Dutch, Max was born in Belgium, and competes under the Dutch Flag with the Red Bull Racing team.

His first entry was at the 2015 Australian Grand Prix, and he won the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix.

Despite his young age, Max has years of experience on the track, as he started out Karting at just four years old.

So after so many years in the spotlight, what is his net worth?

How does his net worth fare in comparison to other Formula 1 drivers?

The wealthiest F1 driver is Briton Lewis Hamilton.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the racing driver has a net worth of £211 million – so Max has some way to go before he eclipses him.

Born in Hertfordshire in 1985, Lewis was into cars from a young age.

At the age of six, his father bought him a radio-controlled car and the following year, he finished second at the British Radio Car Association Championship.

In 1998, Lewis signed to the McLaren young driver programme and became an official Formula One McLaren driver in 2007.

A year later, he won the F1 World Championship for the first time.

In 2013, he signed to drive for Mercedes and won more World Championships including back to back titles in 2014 and 2015. To date, he has now won six World Championships.

In 2018, Lewis signed a two-year contract extension with Mercedes which was reported to be worth nearly £40 million per year.

Adding to his bank balance is his clothing line which launched in 2018. The TOMMYXLEWIS is a collaboration with American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger. The line includes menswear, underwear and swimwear.

He is also number 40 on the Forbes rich list to date.
