There has been talk of introducing a pay cap in the F1 world after the budget cap was approved, but it is certainly not the world of the highest-grossing GPs. In the traditional rankings published by Forbes, Lewis Hamilton is the eighth highest paid athlete in 2020, with a gross of 68 million.
Connor McGregor is the highest paid athlete in the world: mixed martial arts fighter with 149 million euros. In the special rankings, McGregor tops the list, ahead of football champions Lionel Messi with $ 108 million in credit to Cristiano Ronaldo.
Juventus’ Portuguese have reached 99 million. The most incredible thing about this ranking is that the first ten total profits were 70 870 million (over $ 1 billion!), An increase of 28% over 2019, despite the sharp provision of COVID last year.
