Toto Wolff made it to the list of the richest people on the planet. He also improved year-on-year.

This is Wolff made it to the list of dollar billionaires published by Forbes magazine for the second time in a row.

Wolff took 1945th place. His fortune is estimated at $1.6 billion. The head of Mercedes improved year-on-year. He appeared on the list of billionaires for the first time last year, when his fortune was estimated at 1 billion dollars.

Wolff owns a third of the Mercedes team. Another third is owned by Mercedes and the last by INEOS.

There are also other names more or less associated with F1 on the list of billionaires. Lawrence Stroll took 809th place. According to Forbes, his wealth has been growing for a long time. In 2015, it was estimated at 2.4 billion. Last year it was 3.6 billion and this year already 3.9 billion dollars.

In 1286th place is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Ferrari John Elkannwhich improved from $1.7 billion to $2.6 billion.

It is sometimes said that it is better to have 10% in a good company than 100% in a bad one. Enzo Ferrari sold Ferrari to FIAT during his lifetime, but kept a tenth of the share. Today, Ferrari is divided among a number of shareholders, but the son of Enzo Ferrari Pierre still holds a significant share. So it’s no surprise that it’s ranked 295th on the list. In 2016, his fortune was $1 billion. Last year it was already 5.5 billion and this year it was 8.6 billion. He is of course helped by the rise in Ferrari shares ( RACE ).
