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. They’ve been calculated by the chaps at Motorrad magazine in Germany so they’re probably pretty close – but they haven’t been confirmed by the riders or teams. Either way, they still offer an interesting insight into what riders earn at the highest level of motorcycle racing.
