    Current WRC driver salaries listed

    Ogier 8-9 m€
    Latvala 4-4,5 m€
    Neuville 2,5-3 m€
    Mikkelsen, Sordo, Paddon, Tänak, Meeke 1-1,5 m€
    Lappi 1 m€
    Breen 0,6 m€
    Rovanperä, Evans 0,1 m€
    Suninen only sponsor money, about 0,2m€

    Also stuff about the bonus system, like Ogier getting 10% bonus for each win and also bonuses from last year titles. Toyota gives bonus from finishing 2nd or 3rd in the championship. And an interesting bit of fact was that the co-drivers are paid by their drivers, except for Citroen where the team pays their salaries as well.
    Tanak would have to have a really shitty agent for him to be making as much money as Paddon or Sordo after last season and having two teams wanting him this past summer.

    That is clearly a given, considering the position he was in to negotiate his deal.

    At first you would imagine that Meeke and Tänak are making considerably more than Sordo and Paddon, but then again, Sordo probably has some Red Bull K€'s there included and Paddon might have some financial support coming from Oceania. For Meeke and Tänak, that figure could be more the baseline than anything else.

    Btw, isn't Miika Wuorela (the writer) working for TGR? Somehow I think he's the one updating TGR WRC twitter account and writing the press releases or am I completely lost here?

    In 2017 it was 2mil+ for Tänak, discussed even here. Taxes/without taxes and 2 mil. may come to that yes. Mikkelsen and Neuville live in Monaco, probably "pay" there also, so a huge addition from that already.

    Wuorela is not nor have ever been involved with TGR. He does WRC event-to-event basis as a mixture of communications officer for Buagsport (Jouhki) and freelance journalist (Yle, Ilta-Sanomat, Vauhdin Maailma).

    Thanks for the clarification. I had a hunch you might know it better

    About the salaries: it probably varies from resource to another because there's so many ways to calculate it. With tax or without? With winning bonus or without? With expenses (co-driver salary, manager % etc) reduced or not? With sponsor money included or not? In case of Mikkelsen, Latvala and Ogier, with the previous contract salary applied or not?

    However, I would consider Miika Wuorela as a very trustworthy journalist.
