In an historic moment for Lewis Hamilton and Valentino Rossi, and their respective sports, the pair completed an unprecedented track day as each swapped machinery at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo on Monday.
Valentino Rossi drove the Mercedes-AMG F1 W08 EQ Power+, the car Lewis used to win the 2017 FIA Formula One World Championship with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, whilst Hamilton rode the 2019 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP YZR-M1 bike which only weeks earlier had been piloted by Rossi at the very same circuit.
The significance of the occasion was not lost on either Lewis or Valentino who have made no secret of their admiration and respect for each other in recent years.
Acting as mentors for one another, the pair were able to complete multiple runs on each other’s machinery, and share insights and learning about each other’s craft.
