Jean Alesi tops annual list of highest-paid racing drivers

In 2019 it looked like the racing driver’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (August 4) that Alesi is the highest-paid racing driver in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between July 2020 and July 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 Alesi Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Avignon Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderalesi - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jean) and a fashion line called “Jean Alesi Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Jean fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
