George Russell net worth: The 23-year-old Formula One driver is already worth a fortune.
GEORGE RUSSELL is making waves in the world of motorsport and has amassed a tremendous quantity of money as a result.
George Russell is only 23 years old, yet he is already a household figure in the motorsport world. The professional British racing driver is a member of the Williams team and participates in Formula One. His vehicle number is 63, and he is competing in the 2019 Australian Grand Prix for the first time. He’ll be joining Mercedes with Lewis Hamilton next year, but how much is George worth? George Russell’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million (£700,000) according to celebrity websites.
George’s yearly income is estimated to be $1.2 million (£876,000) by Fox Sports, and while it may seem like a lot of money, when compared to the richest race car driver in the world, Lewis Hamilton, who earns roughly $76 million (£55.5 million), George still has a long way to go in the industry.
However, if George can add a few more victories to his resume and please sponsors, his earnings will rise as a result of brand sponsorships and investments.
