- Lewis Hamilton is inarguably one of the richest drivers in the Formula 1 history.
- Apart from owing food chains and non-alcoholic tequilla, Hamilton is also the owner of a marginally successful NFL team.
Lewis Hamilton is one of the greatest athletes in the world. His fruitful career has allowed him to build his image and link himself to other ventures. Apart from his many fashion projects and his appearances at various fashion events like Dior and Louis Vuitton, the driver has also managed to find time to fit into other sports.
Hamilton has climbed the ladders of success and, in turn, also seen his networks outside the sport grow. Many showed interest in the champion’s success, exposure, and fashion. However, with his growing socialite personality and popularity outside the sport, the Mercedes driver took to different ventures to promote himself. Soon Hamilton became a brand more than a driver, having already achieved seven world championships.

However, his love and interest in other ventures are what has always set him apart from most. After listing on Forbes as one of the highest-paid athletes, rightfully so, the Briton made his way to owning a team himself.
Considering the 13 years of his career as an athlete, the champion is well aware of his leadership skills and a thing or two about winning. Soon he took his experience to the Broncos team after being announced as the part-owner of the team. The Broncos team is largely owned by the Walton Penner Family Ownership Group and they soon had Hamilton join as one of the investors.

What other businesses does Hamilton own?
Lewis Hamilton has a long list of ventures that he has indulged himself in in the past few years apart from his racing. The Briton has managed to start various businesses of his own to promote veganism, non-alcoholic beverages, and more.
One of the many businesses he prides on is the Neat Burgers food chain with one store opening in New York City last year. The driver started the food chain to promote veganism and run a vegan food chain business. He has also worked with professionals to create a non-alcoholic beverage called Almave that he openly promoted during the Mexican GP.

Almave is a beverage made from blue agave right before fermentation which would make it alcoholic. Hamilton worked with the team through the process of making the drink. He also owns his clothing line, +44 with many collaborations like Hajime Sorayama in his limited editions. Nevertheless, it did not stop the champion from putting himself out there to become the face of a Valentino campaign.
He also owns the Broncos team and has also shown interest in helping his beloved sport, Formula 1, progress and embrace diversity in the sport. His Mission 44 was created to help with the same, bring diversity to the sport, and promote inclusivity in STEM.
