MotoGP is one of the biggest racing championships in the world. That is why, it is not surprising that the drivers are rewarded with a large salary per season. Then, who is the racer with the highest salary in MotoGP 2022?

Disitat detikOto from Motosan. es, Friday (18/11/2022), for many years, Valentino Rossi has always been the highest paid racer in MotoGP. However, after retiring, his position was taken over by Honda racer from Spain, Marc Marquez.

In the 2022 season, Marc Marquez received a fee of 25 million euros or around IDR 407 billion per year. However, it was not stated with certainty whether this amount only came from Honda’s annual wages or if there were other sources.

Marc Marquez’s high fee has received criticism from a number of MotoGP observers. Because, he often struggles with injuries rather than racing on the track. Not only that, his performance in competitions has also started to decline recently.

Marquez’s salary last season was four times that of Fabio Quartararo, who was ‘only’ 6 million euros or around Rp. 97.5 billion. In fact, Quartararo only received a salary increase after winning the title in the 2021 season.

Meanwhile, surprisingly, Aprilia racer from Spain, Maverick Vinales is in third place for the racer with the highest salary in MotoGP 2022. He receives a wage of 2 million euros or Rp. 32.4 billion per season. Unfortunately, the amount of wages is not equivalent to its performance on the track.

Interestingly, Francesco ‘Pecco’ Bagnaia, who won the world championship, is not included in the list of the 6 highest paid riders in MotoGP 2022. However, he is most likely to get a salary increase next season and enter the elite ranks.
