Top earner in F1?

Despite being one of the back-runners, Takuma Sato is rumoured to be amongst Formula 1’s highest paid drivers.

His Super Aguri teammate for 2007, Anthony Davidson, is said will be earning about $250,000 a year. Sato himself is rumoured to be earning $7.7 million – this includes both his salary and sponsorship.

In contrast, Alonso is reported to have earned $7.2 million in 2006, although his McLaren salary is rumoured to be higher than this.
