    Rossi's rumoured fee at Ducati in 2011 is still in question

    FOLLOWING THIS morning's revelation that reigning MotoGP world champion Valentino Rossi has already earned over £20 million from wages and sponsorship fees in 2010, making him the world's seventh-highest paid athlete, the lovely guys at GPOne.com have been calculating who earns what in MotoGP.
    And, for some, it's not as much as you might think ...
    The figures below represent an estimate of the flat salary the riders are paid by their teams, not including sponsorship deals etc.

    1. Valentino Rossi : from 12 to 15 million Euro (although Ducati boss says that's tosh)
    2. Jorge Lorenzo: from 4 to 7 million Euro
    3. Casey Stoner: from 5 to 7 million Euro
    4. Dani Pedrosa: from 3 to 4 million Euro
    5. Andrea Dovizioso: from 1.5 to 2 million Euro
    6. Marco Simoncelli: from 1.5 to 2 million Euro
    7. Loris Capirossi: 1.5 million Euro
    8. Ben Spies: from 1 to 2 million Euro
    9. Alvaro Bautista: 1 million Euro
    10. Randy De Puniet: from 500,000 Euro (+ free Bunny Girls)
    11. Marco Melandri: 500,000 Euro
    12. Mika Kallio: 350,000 Euro
    13. Colin Edwards: 250,000 Euro
    14. Aleix Espargaro: 250,000 Euro

    R.I.P #48 Shoya Tomizawa (December 10, 1990 – September 5, 2010)
    R.I.P. #58 Marco Simoncelli (January 20, 1987 – October 23, 2011)

    Paid pretty much by how they place it seems.

    Even the shittiest wage is still pretty good to ride a motorcycle for a living (IMO). Add onto that the Millions in sponsership deals, and it's not so bleak.
