The reason that VR makes the most money is one that is very easy to understand. Motogp does not have purse money so its all based on popularity and the amount of camera time each rider gets. I'm guessing that on avg rossi gets the most photos taken, he is still the most sought after rider to interview as well. The sponsorship money is the same concept. The more minutes these brands get on TV the more they pay the rider. Period. Just like other sports. The most popular are the highest paid because they are the biggest draw. Obviously the biggest draws are usually the top guys.
