Michael Schumacher - World's Second Richest Sportsperson
text size: A- A+
Other sports-related people have also earned considerable sums of money, namely Michael Jordan with $517 (€396) million and David Beckham with $258 (€198) million. But Schumacher trumps these figures with ease.
When it comes to F1, he has a substantial lead over Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button, both of which earning in the region of $160 (€122)million each, and Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button with half of Alonso and Button’s earnings.
Despite the whole idea of one person having so much money and power being repulsive, in the case of Michael, we can make an exception as he’s truly a special and unique figure in F1 and in sports in general.

Michael deserves to have good pay after all he works hard and puts his life at stake, i love the guy, i find no faults or complaints against him. i am sad he is leaving formula 1 again, without him formula 1 viewers will fall, it is him that made formula 1 so interesting, never mind at least he is the greatest and achieved a great deal, i wish him and his family good luck and good health and thank you Michael for giving my weekends something to looking forward to and that was you with your awesome style of driving.
