Reigning F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton has headed straight from the final round of the 2018 season in Abu Dhabi to Jerez in Spain, to spin some laps with his latest toys, a pair of Yamaha R1 superbikes prepared by World Superbike team Pata Yamaha.

Lapping with the team’s WSB riders Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark over two days at the circuit used earlier this week for MotoGP and WSB testing, with MCN’s sources reporting that the five-time world champion was lucky to get away with a crash at the track’s fast turn seven.


It isn’t the first time that Hamilton has taken to track, with the F1 driver a keen bike fan and reportedly fast to boot. An MV Agusta ambassador who has produced a number of limited-edition machines in cooperation with the Italian manufacturer, he also spent two days last year lapping with Cal Crutchlow in California.

What we'd now like to know is how to you think he would fare against MotoGP champion Marc Marquez, if the pair swapped disciplines. Cast your vote below:
