capi and seb was double wdc by age of 23! but comparing a drivers current earnings to the earnings of a driver of several years ago, is totally pointless. and who knows who attracts more outside income? i reckon alonso has far more income from sponsors etc, as would seb.

on a sadder note, a former british f1 driver has just passed away.

roy salvadori....RIP.

Richard, it took seb more than three seasons to become wdc so by that time he was experienced enough. It took Lewis one season. Lewis can still become a two time wdc, seb cannot become the best rookie in the history if f1. Seb case is even worse, how can a two time wdc be paid same as zero wdc holder simply because they are team mates?
And back to the topic, the sponsorship deals you are talking about are mere speculations. My assumption is when it comes to sponsorship deals, mclaren, ferrari and redbull drivers make the same.

capi correction. it took lulu TWO seasons to become wdc!

and as for webber/seb comparison. this has already been explained. rbr drivers are paid a base and then on performance. seb gets an extra 1m per win, so look at what he EARNED last year, compared to webber.

urko. to understand alonsos worth. look at where he has a dog of a car, this year. is he worth it? yes, and he EARNS it. apart from all that, most of his money comes from santander input.
