The 37-year-old driver is regarded as one of the sport’s greats, with a joint-record seven F1 titles. In 2020, the Sunday Times Rich List estimated his net worth at over $250 million, so he would certainly be capable of making a significant investment into the Broncos.
The Broncos’ new ownership group has been linked to some big names. One of them was Peyton Manning, though the former quarterback seems to have other plans for the moment.
