Lewis Hamilton is Formula One’s Richest Man

Lewis Hamilton is the king and poster boy of Formula One. Since he burst onto the scene in 2007 with McLaren, winning his first of a record-equaling seven world titles a year later, no man has had a bigger impact on the sport, both on and off the track.

A then-controversial move to relative unknowns Mercedes in 2013 allowed Hamilton to assert his dominance. Since 2014, only one man not named Lewis Hamilton has won the sport’s top honor, and the Brit is one of two drivers in contention for the 2021 crown.

He is also not reserved when it comes to speaking his mind. As the only Black driver in F1 history, he has used his voice to promote equality and has campaigned for other issues such as LGTBQ+ equality and environmental concerns.

Hamilton’s success on the track has also earned him millions, making him not just the best-paid driver in F1, but the eighth best-paid athlete in the world.
