The salaries of all 24 drives on the grid have been revealed in a report compiled by the Spanish paper El Mundo, citing figures compiled by Business Book GP.

The list highlights double-world champion, Fernando Alonso, as the top earner (£24.5m) on almost double second placed man Lewis Hamilton's £13m annual salary.

Kimi Raikkonen also made the list, despite having left the series in 2009. Ferrari continue to pay the Fin a salary matching Hamilton's, making him the joint-second highest earner.

Felipe Massa and Jenson Button both lag behind their team-mates on £11.4m and £7m respectively.

Meanwhile, Mercedes pay their drivers equally with both on £6.5m a piece.

The surprises of the season are Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel. The team-mates earn just £3.4m and £1.6m respectively, however they make far more from good results than most other drivers.

Lotus driver Jarno Trulli came in ahead of Vettel on £2.4m whilst his team-mate, Heikki Kovalainen, matched the Red Bull driver's salary.

Both Karun Chandhok and Sakon Yamamoto pay for their seats, but the exact figure of how much they pay isn't widely known.

Theres a few intersting stats in their:

#18 Vitaly Petrov IS a pay driver in the sence that his Father brings multimillions in sponsorship to Renault and requests that his son (Vitaly) is one of the drivers.

#21 Adrian Sutil making 250K USD is a crime. He needa a new manager (and team).

Being one of, if not my favorite driver on the grid, I couldn't agree more. I knew he wasn't at the top, but like you said, that is an absolute travesty.
