Lewis Hamilton has huge net worth that towers above Max Verstappen’s

Lewis Hamilton has a huge net worth that towers above that of his Formula One title rival Max Verstappen.

The duo will face off in the title deciding Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday as they go in to the final race of the season level on points.

Hamilton was 32 points behind his rival at one point this season before being able to claw himself back into contention for a record eighth title.

Verstappen could secure his first Drivers' Championship on Sunday and will hope that victory will also help him close the gap on Hamilton when it comes to their respective net worth.

Of all this season's drivers, Mercedes driver Hamilton has the highest net worth, with the Brit worth more than 10 other drivers combined.

According to MotorSportWeek, Hamilton is worth £206million thanks to prize money, his Mercedes contract and a host of endorsements.

Hamilton joined Mercedes in 2013 and his latest contract extension will keep him with the team through until 2023.

In addition to his salary and the prize money from his seven world titles and 103 race wins, Hamilton has also amassed a large amount from sponsorships and endorsements.

The 36-year-old is known to be into his fashion and has previously completed lucrative collaborations with the designer Tommy Hilfiger.

This deal is joined by endorsements with Monster Energy, Puma, Sony and Bose to ultimately take him to his impressive net worth.

Hamilton's net worth even dwarfs that of Verstappen, despite the Dutch driver being believed to be the second-highest paid driver in F1.

Having signed a new deal with Red Bull at the start of 2020, Verstappen is understood to earn around £18million-per-year from the team.

This has helped give him a net worth of £44million, although this is still less than a quarter of Hamilton's wealth.

Like Hamilton, Verstappen is aided by a number of endorsements and sponsorships, having first raced in F1 at the age of 17.

His sponsors include Jumbo Supermarkets, Ziggo, Red Bull, G-Star Raw and CarNext.com.

The duo will go head-to-head in the United Arab Emirates on Sunday to decide who is the 2021 Formula One world champion.
