Recently, the Formula 1 (F1) champion Lewish Hamilton had the opportunity to control the Yamaha YZR-M1 superbike that Valetino Rossi used on MotoGP. Below is a video of that moment.
Last year, Lewis Hamilton experienced the feeling of a two-wheel race with a Yamaha R1 M on the Jerez track and suffered a minor accident. At the time, WSBK drivers Michael van der Mark and Alex Lowes were the ones who guided Formula 1 champions.
However, it was only until this time that Lewis Hamilton truly understood the feeling of holding a reincarnation of a true MotoGP superbike. The car Hamilton drives is a Yamaha M1 of Valentino Rossi. The instructor for Hamilton was Franco Morbidelli, the driver of the Petronas Yamaha SRT satellite racing team.
Although the champion of Formula 1, the F1 racing car is completely different from MotoGP racing, from the feeling of driving, speed, to cornering techniques. This can be considered as a completely new experience of the British champion.
