Whirlpools World

Nine-time world Moto GP champion Valentino Rossi and six-time Formula 1 Champion Lewis Hamilton will be swapping seats in Valencia this Monday in Valencia, with Rossi driving the 2019 title-winning F1 car and Hamilton getting out on Rossi’s factory Yamaha M1 bike.

Hamilton comes to Spain hot on winning the final GP of the season in Abu Dhabi last Sunday, having already retained his world crown.

The swap-meet has come about through Monster Energy which is a major sponsor for both drivers’ respective teams and will take place at the Ricardo Tormo circuit, which recently staged the Valencia Moto GP won by Marc Marquez.

Getting out on the factory Yamaha will be Lewis Hamilton’s first time on a real MotoGP bike but the six-times Formula 1 champion is hardly a slouch on fast bikes having put a Yamaha R1 around Jerez last year.
