Lewis Hamilton joins Denver Broncos ownership group ahead of $4.65billion sale

Lewis Hamilton has joined forces with the ownership group of the Denver Broncos ahead of the Walton-Penner Family’s $4.65billion takeover of the NFL franchise.

Seven-time F1 world champion Hamilton joined forces with Serena Williams back in April in an attempt to buy Chelsea FC, as part of Sir Martin Broughton’s bid, but LA Dodgers owner Todd Boehly’s bid ultimately proved victorious.

But the 37-year-old, who regularly spends his winters at his home in the Colorado mountains, has joined forces with the Broncos’ new ownership group, with Rob Walton saying Hamilton’s “resillient spirit and standard of excellence will be an asset.”

Hamilton will work alongside former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who was also added to the ownership group just over two weeks ago.

“We’re delighted to welcome Seven-Time Formula One World Champion Sir Lewis Hamilton to our ownership group,” a statement on the Broncos website read.

“He is a champion competitor who knows what it takes to lead a winning team and a fierce advocate for global equality, including in his own sport. With over 100 race wins, Lewis is considered the most successful F1 driver of all time.

“His resilient spirit and standard of excellence will be an asset to the ownership group and the Broncos organization.”

The Walton-Penner Family are on the verge of completing their multi-billion takeover of the 2015 NFL champions, which needs approval by the NFL owners when they meet in Minneapolis next Tuesday.

If the purchase is approved as expected, the deal would be the highest price ever for an American sports franchise.

Hamilton, who is focusing on off-track ventures amid the F1 summer break, could attend an NFL game in Denver around the festive period, following the conclusion of the Formula 1 season in Abu Dhabi on November 20.

The Mercedes star is currently sixth in the Drivers’ Standings but has been on the podium in the last five races, most recently finishing second at the Hungarian Grand Prix on Sunday.
