Lewis Hamilton still winless in 2022 after watching new team in NFL action

Lewis Hamilton made an important stop en route to racing at this weekend’s United States Grand Prix in Austin.

Earlier this year, the seven-time world champion officially joined the ownership group of NFL franchise the Denver Broncos and watched team in action as they took on the Chargers at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Monday night.

Hamilton posted a quick video on social media, saying: “Hey, what’s up Broncos Country. It’s Lewis Hamilton here. Here to support the team. Go Broncos.”

Hamilton also posed with his own Broncos jersey with his name emblazoned on the back.

During the game, he was spotted in deep conversation with billionaire Rob Walton, who leads the new ownership club which paid $4.65billion, a global record for a professional sports team, for the Broncos in August.

As well as Hamilton, the ownership group features Walton’s daughter, Carrie Penner and her husband Greg, businesswoman and friend of Hamilton, Mellody Hobson, and former US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice.

Upon buying into the Broncos, Hamilton tweeted: “Excited to join an incredible group of owners and become a part of the @Broncos story!! Honoured to work with a world class team and serve as an example of the value of more diverse leadership across all sports.”

Sadly, the Mercedes star’s presence couldn’t inspire the Broncos to victory over the Chargers, who secured a narrow 19-16 victory.

Hamilton will now move on to Texas for the next stop on the F1 calendar. The 37-year-old has four races left to ensure he doesn’t go through an entire season without winning a race for the first time.

It is almost a full year since Hamilton tasted victory, with his last win coming at the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix in early December before he controversially lost the title to Max Verstappen in Abu Dhabi.
