F1 salary list Not Qualifying- no spoilers
I thought this was an interesting list to review once you see the results from qualifying.

The annual list of F1 salaries has again been published, and while Fernando Alonso remains top, he has now been joined by Lewis Hamilton.

The report - published by Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo and citing information compiled by Business Book GP - reckons both are now on around €20 million, Hamilton getting an extra €4 million per year following his switch from McLaren to Mercedes.

Interestingly though, the same publication had Alonso on a retainer of €30 million in 2012 – it is unclear why this estimate for the Ferrari #1 has now been revised...

Jenson Button meanwhile remains third, taking home €16 million, while triple F1 world champion, Sebastian Vettel has got an increase and now earns €12 million with Red Bull, €1 million a year more than Nico Rosberg and €2 million a year more than Mark Webber.

Felipe Massa has had a pay cut, reduced from €10 million a year to €6 million, while Kimi Raikkonen seems to be a relative bargain for Lotus on only €3 million a year (€2 million less than the figure quoted in 2012), although it is rumoured his pot is boosted substantially according to how he performs and how many points he scores.

Further back, Sergio Perez is now earning three times more than last year following his move to McLaren, with the Woking-based team paying him €1.5 million a season. Romain Grosjean, Nico Hulkenberg and Pastor Maldonado are the only other drivers said to be in the €1 million a year bracket, with Valtteri Bottas on €600,000, ahead of Jules Bianchi and Adrian Sutil on €500,000 apiece.

The full breakdown is below...

4. Sebastian Vettel Red Bull Racing €12m
5. Nico Rosberg Mercedes €11m
