MotoGP: Ever wondered how much top lever racers earn?


Have you ever found yourself wondering how much money Marc Marquez, Valentino Rossi or Andrea Dovizioso earn? Well, here are the salaries of MotoGP stars for the 2019 season.

It’s worth mentioning that the figures aren’t necessarily 100% accurate.
