Let’s move on now in the “roast” regarding the fees of the riders of the World, recently the Italian newspaper Sports Gazette published the amounts.
Marc Marquez – €12.5 millions
Maverick Vinales – €10 from.
Fabio Quartararo – €6 from.
Joan Mir – €6 from.
Francesco Bagnaia – €5 from.
Pol Espargaro – €3.5 from.
Jack Miller, Alex Rins , Franco Morbidelli – €3 from.
Johann Zarco – €2 from.
Alex Marquez, Jorge Martin – €1 from.
Aleix Espargaro – €750,000
Miguel Oliveira – €625,000
Takaaki Nakagami, Brad Binder – €500,000
Enea Bastianini, Fabio di Giannantonio – €375,000
Luca Marini – €300,000
His astronomical salary makes an impression on the above Marc Marquez and the problem he faces to make the appropriate comeback, which will justify the exorbitant amount, as well as his equally large remuneration Maverick Vinales at 10 million euros!
The penultimate (2021) World Champion and contender for this year’s title Fabio Quartararo looks like “thrown” at 6 million euros, especially if we see how the Joan Mir – who also won a championship in 2020 without particularly good performance, but in ’22 he didn’t do anything great either – he’s paid the same money!
His money also seems “little”. I’m sorry Bagnaia but only compared to the 2022 achievement (see MotoGP title) while there must be much grumbling among the brethren Espargaro, since the “non-existent” in ’22 Pol the “winner” also gets 3.5 million euros GP” Alex he gets just 750,000 euros.
“Minimum” is the money he collected last year the unlikely last year Aeneas Bastianini with match wins (just €375.000), while the 300 thousand received by Luca Marini, whom he should have helped somewhat in this matter… his famous brother.
