Toto Wolff answers Martin Brundle: “Does Hamilton earn as much as Verstappen?”

Sky F1 presenter and former driver Martin Brundle asked Toto Wolff, the Mercedes team boss, about Lewis Hamilton’s new contract, which was announced to run until the end of 2025 and pay him £50m per year, the same as Max Verstappen. When asked if Lewis earns as much as Max, Wolff replied that he didn’t know Max’s earning. Hamilton’s new deal includes a pay increase of £10m per year, as reported by the Daily Mail, and will keep him in Formula 1 until the age of 40, making him the second-oldest driver on the grid. Wolff expressed his belief that Hamilton will always be an iconic racing driver and personality and hopes their careers and journey together will continue beyond racing. Comparing Hamilton to other athletes like Tom Brady and Fernando Alonso, Wolff sees Lewis as a driver who can continue pushing boundaries and achieving greatness for a long time.
