The Mercedes driver has apparently enhanced his wealth by £8m over the past 12 months with F1 compatriot Jenson Button second on the list with a whopping £63m.
Tennis player Andy Murray's earnings were boosted by his success in winning Wimbledon with his wealth increasing from from £32m to £40m.
He is Scotland's richest sportsman with golfer Padraig Harrington Ireland's richest sportsman boasting some eye-watering figures of £36m.
The list does not only include earnings solely from sport, but also other assets such as property, art, racehorses and shares.
