he Sunday Times Rich List takes into account people living in Britain, not just British citizens.
Three-time F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton made the list for the first time with a fortune valued at $206 million. He got there on the back of a recent three-year deal with Mercedes, signed for a reported $112 million not including bonuses.
Hamilton's Mercedes boss Toto Wolff and wife Susie were listed jointly, while McLaren leader Ron Dennis' $562 million also earnt him a spot among Britain's elite.
Ecclestone will be hoping the rest of 2016 proves to be more profitable, but he's been in the news for more than just his monetary woes. Last week the 85-year-old caused a stir when he suggested women drivers wouldn't be taken seriously because they weren't capable of driving quickly.
"I don't know whether a woman would physically be able to drive an F1 car quickly and they wouldn't be taken seriously," he said at a conference in London.
He also let people know about his peculiar political preferences when he said Russian president Vladimir Putin "should be running Europe" and Donald Trump should be the US president.
"We should get rid of Brussels and he (Putin) should just be in charge," Ecclestone said. "He does what he says he's going to do, he gets the job done.
"I think (Trump) would be fantastic (as president).
"I'm sure he's much more flexible than most of them. If he's made a mistake, he's more likely to say, 'It was a good idea at the time.'"
