MotoGP Champ Jorge Lorenzo Tests Hamilton’s Mercedes-AMG F1 Car

MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo got a rare opportunity to get behind the wheel of a championship winning Formula 1 car. Lorenzo drove Lewis Hamilton’s 2014 Mercedes-AMG F1 W05 Hybrid racer at Silverstone recently. The Spaniard is used to racing on two wheels and it took some warming up before getting into a Formula 1 car.

Prior to heading out in the multi-million dollar F1 car, Lorenzo spent some time in simulator. He also got his hands on Formula 2 car from 2012 just to get the feel of an open-wheel race car. That said, he was pretty quick in the F1 car as he lapped the Silverstone International Circuit in 50.452 sec.
