The former Ferrari and Jaguar driver and 1999 championship runner-up has made a US $128 million fortune in property development since retiring from Formula One in 2002.

1979 world champion Jody Scheckter, now a successful organic farmer, has $96 million, with Prodrive boss David Richards and David Coulthard coming next.

2008 title winner Lewis Hamilton's $80m fortune matches Scottish veteran Coulthard's, which is more than McLaren's other driver Jenson Button at $77m.

1992 world champion Nigel Mansell's fortune is the same as Button's, according to the list.
