Prince Harry Formula 1

Prince Harry attended last Sunday's British Formula 1 Grand Prix at England's Silverstone Circuit where he was on hand to present the trophy to the winner of the racing event, Fernando Alonso.

Second and third place winners, Sebastian Vettel (above) and Mark Webber, were also honored with a congratulatory handshake from the handsome prince.

However, if Harry had it his way he would have been congratulating McLaren drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton, both of whom he was rooting for before the start of the race, saying:

“I’ll be cheering on Jenson and Lewis, big time. Obviously weather is playing a big part, as it always does at Silverstone. I’m hoping for rain, just because I think it will be better for McLaren, but we will have to wait and see.”

Check out more pics of Harry at the event below mingling with racing royalty like former former Formula 1 World Champion Nigel Mansell.

Britain's Highest Paid Sports Star Is…

Lewis Hamilton highest paid British sports star

Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton!

The 2008 Formula One World Champion and boyfriend of pop star Nicole Scherzinger reportedly earned $18 million last year.

Think that's a lot of money? The figure still doesn't even include his endorsement deals!

He may be Britain's richest sports star, however, he trailed behind the top two earners on ESPN's list of highest paid sports stars.

Baseball player Alex Rodriguez and boxer Manny Pacquiao earned almost DOUBLE last year (once again, without endorsement deals included)!

According to the sports mag, the salary figures they obtained represent "only base salary from the most recently completed season or calendar year from each sport, and excludes any other source of compensation, unless otherwise noted."

We knew we should have listened to our parents and stuck with T-ball! LOLz!
