Sebastian Vettel has reportedly signed a three-year-old deal with Aston Marti. Before the move, Vettel was the 2nd highest earning current F1 driver.
Meanwhile, According to Gazzetta, the Vettel Aston Martin deal will see the 33-year-old bag € 15m per year ($17.7 million). He will also be named the ambassador for the car manufacturer Aston Martin.
This is a huge pay cut taken by Vettel as he used to earn around $30-36 million at Ferrari till his last contract with the Italian outfit. This pay cut will definitely take him down in the list of highest-earning drivers drastically.
Vettel doesn’t have a huge amount to boast through advertisements and endorsements, but it isn’t clear how much he will make from the reported role of Aston Martin car.
Whatever it would be, certainly it will not make up for how much he currently earns at Ferrari.
