Lewis Hamilton was in attendance during Denver Broncos’ latest NFL clash against Los Angeles Chargers
Lewis Hamilton is making the most of his leisure time in the United States ahead of this weekend’s Grand Prix. He was spotted watching an NFL match between Denver and Los Angeles on Monday night. Hamilton is a part of the consortium that purchased the Denver Broncos for a record US$ 4.65 billion back in August.
The principal owners of the Denver Broncos franchise are Walmart heir Rob Walton and his daughter and son-in-law. Hamilton is a new part owner of the franchise and last night, he attended his team’s match for the first time since the takeover. However, it was not a memorable outing for the Broncos team as they slumped to a 19-16 deal in front of their new owner.
The purchase of Denver Broncos by Hamilton and other co-owners is the largest for any professional sports franchise. Besides Hamilton, the new ownership team includes Rob Walton, who is now the richest owner in the NFL. The ownership group also includes Starbucks board chairperson Mellody Hobson and former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
