Marc Marquez will enjoy another successful year in 2023 as the MotoGP rider with the highest salary.
Marc Marquez, who has been competing in the MotoGP series for exactly ten years, has enjoyed a very successful career with Repsol Honda, winning six championships in that time in the top division and countless other victories.
The fact that he is among the highest paid and has a larger bank account is not surprising for this reason alone; between salary and sponsorship money, he should make at least $40 million this year.
Spanish media outlet Cuatro estimates his net worth, yearly income, sponsorship payments, luxury watch collection details, cost of his enormous new house, and bonuses for competing provide these approximations.
Six-time MotoGP champion Marquez is looking for a seventh title this year, which would tie his rival Valentino Rossi’s record. He is anticipated to begin this season injury-free for the first time in three years when the Portuguese MotoGP gets underway this weekend.
According to Cuatro’s report, Marquez makes money solely by competing in each grand prix, despite missing six races last year while recovering from surgery. He went to the Spanish city last year to recover from an injury and reset his social circle and profession. He has a €10 million (£8.8 million) mansion there.
- He has a total fortune of €80m (£70m)
- He is paid €12.5m (£10.9m) per season by Honda, and has two years left on his contract
- Sponsorship from Red Bull, Estrella Galicia, Alianz and Tissot means his total annual earnings will be €40m (£35m)
Marquez’s bonus payments
- €1.4m (£1.2m) to win the championship
- €570,450 (£498,985) per race to enter
Marquez has acquired some pricey possessions thanks to the enormous wealth he has accumulated over the course of his illustrious career. According to reports, he is also constructing a mansion in Cervera, his hometown.
Marquez also owns 61 Tissot watches in his collection of fine timepieces.
