Lewis Hamilton has just signed a new multi-million dollar contract with Mercedes, which will guarantee him an unprecedented salary and benefits. Lewis will make over $55 million per year in salary alone. The British seven-time F1 world champion driver has a net worth of approximately $285 million.

The Sunday Times also reported him as the richest sportsman of the year 2020.

Hamilton has valuable properties in several cities around the world such as Monte Carlo, Geneva, London and Manhattan. Lewis also has a collection of luxurious supercars, as well as having invested long-term, differentially.

Lewis' investments include its investment in Neat Burgers, a plant-based burger chain. He also invested in Zapp, a grocery delivery app. Besides these he has many other valid investments such as the Denver Broncos. Collaborating with the renowned brand Tommy Hilfiger, Hamilton is ready to present an exclusive series of clothing under his name.

Lewis is also reportedly earning $10 million in bonuses that come from podiums, race wins and constructor standings.

Hamilton is a brand ambassador for many big brands such as IWC, Tommy Hilfiger, Bose, Electronic Arts, Mercedes-Benz, INEOS, Puma, Police and Monster Energy.

Hamilton is much more than just a motorcyclist figure, and this makes him very marketable for brands. Some of his recent collaborations come with IWC, where they presented a watch together. He has also collaborated on a clothing line with Tommy Hilfiger.

Like the previous year, 2023 opens with the team in difficulty compared to its rivals; in the first two GPs of the season, in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, Lewis had to settle for fifth place. In the Australian Grand Prix he achieved his first podium of the season, finishing second behind Max Verstappen.

In the next two GPs in Azerbaijan and Miami he finished sixth. He returns to the podium at the Spanish Grand Prix, where he manages to recover from fourth place on the grid to second place overall.
