Who's the highest paid British racing driver? That's an easy question and you probably won't need telling it's Lewis Hamilton, and by some margin. Working out who ranks underneath him in the pay scale of racing Brits is much more difficult.
This is our attempt to come up with a list of the top earners from Britain in our sport and is part of a much wider examination of the British professional racing scene that you can read in this week's Autosport magazine. Of course, it can only be based on informed estimation, because only a handful of sets of eyes will have seen each driver's contract.
What constitutes a professional driver is also far from straightforward. There are drivers, including some of the highest paid members of the Formula 1 circus, who earn their crust by taking a cut of the sponsorship they or their management find. For us, that doesn't count.
