Seven-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton at 37, is already building investment portfolio for his retirement, the latest being investing in three-time Super Bowl winners – the Denver Broncos.
Hamilton has been brought into the group of owners of Denver Broncos by boss of Walmart Rob Walton, who is in the process of completing a reported $4.65bn takeover of the franchise.
With Hamilton’s £224million net worth, he joined the likes of former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Rob Walton who believed Hamilton will transfer his success on the F1 track to a role with the Colorado side.
Rob Walton said: “We’re delighted to welcome Seven-Time Formula One World Champion Sir Lewis Hamilton to our ownership group. “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 organisation.”
Hamilton’s decision to join the Broncos comes after he lost out in a £10m bid to own Chelsea football club in April.
In 2020, Hamilton also started his own all-electric racing team to help raise awareness in climate change.
In 2018, the Brit launched his own clothing line with Tommy Hilfiger and a year later Hamilton also created a vegan restaurant called Neat Burger.
