There is a lot of research in behavioral psychology to indicate that the two are not inseparable. The most obvious example is the experiment where people are asked if they would like to have $20 and have someone else have $25, or have $15 and someone else have $10. The vast majority go for $15.

But as someone else has pointed out, this belongs more in CS&M than in Racing.

I will say that it is my impression that money is a secondary consideration to the elite athletes in the MotoGP paddock. There are a number of them who could be earning a lot more than they are if they were to switch to WSBK, but they prefer to remain in MotoGP.
