F1 star Lewis Hamilton cheers on his NFL team Denver Broncos for first time since becoming co-owner

LEWIS HAMILTON cheered on his NFL side Denver Broncos on Monday night, the first time he has done so since becoming co-owner of the team.

The 37-year-old Formula 1 superstar became an investor in the three-time Super Bowl champions back in August.

And he attended his first game as an NFL owner in California as the Broncos took on the Los Angeles Chargers.

Hamilton posted a snap from the SoFi Stadium onto his Instagram story.

And he added the caption: “Watching my team for the first time. So excited to be he here. Let’s go @broncos.”

Broncos’ official Twitter account also shared a clip of Hamilton talking to the camera, with the seven-time world champion saying: “Hey, what’s up Broncos Country, Lewis Hamilton here. Here to support the team. Go Broncos.”

However, the Brit, who is worth around £250million, will have to wait a bit longer to see a first Broncos win as they lost 19-16 to the Chargers in LA.

Hamilton joined the Broncos’ ownership as part of the Walton-Penner family takeover.

And he took his seat alongside a number of his co-owners, including Rob Walton, Greg Penner and Carrie Walton Penner.

The Broncos were officially sold to a group of Walmart heirs for a record-breaking price of £4.1billion on August 9, with Hamilton coming in as a minority owner.

Meanwhile, Hamilton will return to the F1 track this weekend when he heads to the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.

The Mercedes driver is looking to avoid a winless season for the first time since he debuted in the sport back in 2007.

Hamilton has won at least one Grand Prix every year for the past 15 campaigns, but is yet to secure one in 2022.

He has managed six podium finishes, but the Silver Arrows have failed to compete for both the drivers’ and constructors championships.

Max Verstappen clinched his second successive title last time out in Japan.

Hamilton is down in sixth, 27 points behind Mercedes team-mate George Russell.
