Max Verstappen has won a Grand Prix for the ninth time in a row. In the wet Zandvoort, Verstappen secured another win. We already knew that the driver earns a lot of money with his performance. But to get a better idea of the astronomical sum, let’s refrain from a nice calculation.
In this article, we calculate how much Max Verstappen earns per minute.
How much does Max Verstappen earn?
The race in Zandvoort was anything but smooth. Already at the beginning of the race, rain caused some chaos. But a heavy rain finally brought the whole race to a standstill! Nevertheless, the Dutchman got the win.
Before we start the calculation, we must first clarify exactly how much the Dutchman earns. De Telegraaf states that this amount is between 40 and 50 million euros per year.
That’s not wrong! If we assume that Max Verstappen earns 50 million euros, his monthly salary is 4,166,666 euros. That’s just over 1 million euros a week.
Verstappen’s salary per second
We continue the calculation by dividing the weekly salary by the number of days in a week. We learn that Verstappen earns almost 150,000 euros a day.
That is 6,200 euros per hour and 103 euros per minute. After all, our Max Verstappen earns 1 euro and 70 cents per second. Every second, even when the 25-year-old Dutchman is taking a nap. And that until 2028!
Let’s make it clear again:
Per year: About 50 million
Per month: 4.16 million
Weekly: 1 million
Per day: 150,000
Per hour: 6,200
Per minute: 103
Per second: 1.70
