Lewis Hamilton states that Formula 1 remains his priority amid an attempt to become a Chelsea Football Club co-owner.

It was reported last week that Hamilton joined a consortium that had an intension to purchase Chelsea Football Club, meaning that he could become one of its co-owners. The Mercedes driver assured that his plans would not affect his F1 career.

“Well, at the moment, my primary focus is continuing in Formula 1, and this isn’t my first business venture or investment,” he said.

“It’s something that I’m excited about. I would say early on, for sure, I’m not going to be able to be as hands-on as the other people that are a part of it.

“We haven’t won it yet, but if we do, there are lots of opportunities to get involved more and more over time, which is super exciting, and particularly beyond racing, of wanting to help with the success they’ve already had and help it be even more successful.

“The consortium is a consortium of lifetime Chelsea fans and others that have come to it later, like myself.

“There’s not anyone that’s a part of it, that’s with the mindset of losing. I think Chelsea already has a winning mindset, but I think we can do better with how we move it forward.”
