Tennis has a more world wide appeal.
If Danica was in F1, she may just pass Maria.
The richest ever was F1's Shumacher. He blew away Tiger and Jordan.
As a US athlete in a very "home-grown" sport like NASCAR, Danica is doing very well.

I don't think that was all from F1, unless you consider the endorsements he earned as a result of his driving, as part of his F1 earnings.
To my knowledge, he was around $80 mil in his prime. And I believe that included endorsements.
The man got $10 mil a year just for wearing a "Shell" cap.
His net worth is estimated between $800 and $850 million today, in USD. Give or take 10 mil. ;)
