His net worth, his annual salary, his sponsorship fees, the details of a luxury watch collection, the price of his massive new home and his bonuses for entering races have been estimated by Spanish media Cuatro, who report these approximate numbers...

Marc Marquez’s eye-watering pay-day

  • He has a total fortune of €80m 
  • He is paid €12.5m  per season by Honda, and has two years left on his contract
  • Sponsorship from Red Bull, Estrella Galicia, Alianz and Tissot means his total annual earnings will be €40m

Marquez is a six-time MotoGP champion but his hopes for a seventh, which would equal the total of his rival Valentino Rossi, is looking bleak this year. After three rounds he has completed just two grand prix laps after crashing into Miguel Oliveira then missing two weekends through injury.

Marc Marquez’s bonus payments

  • €1.4m to win the championship
  • €570,450 per race to enter

The vast sums that Marquez has accrued throughout his glorious career have earned him some expensive acquisitions, too.

He owns a €10m home in Madrid - he moved to the Spanish capital last year as he recovered from injury and re-set his inner-circle and his career.

He is also reportedly building a property in his hometown of Cervera.

Marquez also has a luxury watch collection of 61 (yes, that’s 61!) Tissot watches.
