Lewis Hamilton Is Excited To Be A Part Of The Denver Broncos Story
The NFL team shared a statement from the Walton-Penner Family Ownership Group on Twitter, expressing their delight in having Hamilton partner with them.
Rob Walton, the lead heir of the family, released the message on behalf of Walton-Penner, noting that the 37-year-old sportsman was indeed an excellent asset to the partnership. The statement partly read:
“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.”
It continued, “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.”
While singing praises for Hamilton, the release also pointed out that “his resilient spirit and standard of excellence” would be beneficial to the ownership group and the Broncos organization.
The British racing driver took to Twitter shortly after with a message that showed how excited he was “to join an incredible group of owners and become a part of the Broncos story.”
He was honored to partner with such a world-class team and be an exemplary figure of the importance of “diverse leadership across all sports.”
Hamilton then made a shout-out to his dog Roscoe who could be seen rocking a Broncos jersey and matching neckerchief in a picture below the tweet, as he already thought he “made the team.”

Details of the Denver Broncos partnership were recently brought to light which TalkSport reported, disclosing that an agreement of $4.65billion was reached between the involved parties.
The deal will reportedly be the highest price ever for an American sports group if NFL signs off on the purchase.
Nevertheless, it is expected to be authorized even though NFL heads are set to meet up soon to determine if the deal should proceed as NFL’s finance committee, and league ownership needs to approve the bid.
It is worth knowing that the Walton-Penner family led by Rob will acquire the Broncos from Pat Bowlen Trust, run by the surviving offspring of the late club owner.
With Walton’s ownership team comprising daughter Carrie and her husband Greg Penner, both parties announced the agreement earlier in June but did not specify a sales price.
As for Hamilton, a constant visitor to the United States, he partnered with businesswoman Mellody Hobson and former U.S. secretary of state Condoleezza Rice in having stakes in the organization.
It was also noted that the World Drivers’ Champion was “well positioned to follow his new venture,” and it appeared to be delightful times ahead for the NFL group.
Hamilton’s deal with the Broncos comes after he showed interest in purchasing the English club Chelsea back in April with fellow partners.
As was reported, he was a part of Sir Martin Broughton’s association with the hopes to purchase Chelsea alongside tennis legend Serena Williams before Todd Boehy took ownership of the club.
