Lewis Hamilton has responded to a rumour that he wants to buy a MotoGP team in the future.

It was recently reported that the seven-time Formula 1 world champion is interested in purchasing the Gresini MotoGP team.

Gresini is currently the boss of brothers Marc and Alex Marquez. The former, one of the most successful riders in MotoGP history, is leaving the team for Ducati.

It wouldn’t be the first time Hamilton has ventured into sports property, as he joined a group that acquired the NFL’s Denver Broncos.

He was also a team member in the Extreme E off-road racing class for a number of years.

When asked if he was interested in purchasing the Gresini MotoGP team, Hamilton told media including RacingNews365: “I have always loved MotoGP.

“I’m interested in the potential growth of the sport, but I haven’t looked that far into it yet. But anything is possible. I’m certainly interested in, as I said before, equality, and with the Broncos it was already a first step in team ownership.

“And so, yeah, I think hopefully over the next five to 10 years there will be more. We’ll see where.”

Earlier this year, MotoGP was acquired by Liberty Media, which is also the commercial rights holder of F1.
