Alain Prost tops annual list of highest-paid racing drivers
In 2018 it looked like the racing driver’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (May 14) that Prost is the highest-paid racing driver in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between April 2020 and April 2021, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The French racing driver has an estimated net worth of $185 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Prost Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Lorette Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderprost - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Alain) and a fashion line called “Alain Prost Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Alain fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
