    This sounds about right.

    Also, Elfyn has a job at the garage in-between rallies so clearly not on mega bucks, if any. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jArNseEd_8I

    Mikkelsen was asked to pay if he wanted to drive a DMack car (refused obviously), so definitely the only salary would be from his sponsors, according to the article they didn`t take sponsorships into account. Full of rubbish and nothing else.

    Are WRC driver's the poorest paid at world-level in motorsport ?

    I doubt WRX get paid too much, but when you compare it to F1, Indycar, Sportscars, basically any professional circuit racing, I'd say yes.

    Back in the day McRae was apparently one of the highest salaried sportsmen in the UK. At the time he was on a rumoured £4m+ which would be more than most premiership footballers at the time.

    In terms of current stars, I suspect that Latvala would earn more than trials riders or raid drivers. Plus I doubt that any drag racer outside of the US is on much of a salary, given that it costs so much to run the cars.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    No

    its the same in any top level motorsport

    those that can win, get paid.

    Those that make up the numbers are lucky they get anything.

    rumour is Ogier on $6m USD inc bonus, and that excludes personal endorsements.

    Mikkelsen & Neuville not living in Monaco for nothing, any less than a few million usd a year, or its not viable.

    If that's Euros then it's about £160,000 per week, that's well in the range of top paid sportsmen.

    Mikkelsen & Neuville both come from wealthy families. Very wealthy in Mikkelsen's case. Both of them could afford a Monaco apartment just as a storage unit.

    I sounds like the Seb's have been the only ones that earned well as none the rest could really fight them for a title.

    Maybe when VW left others were in with a better chance so got paid more. But if they already had a contract I wonder if any re-negociated ?
