There have been many rumors about the exchange of vehicles between the British driver - Lewis Hamilton - and the Italian rider - Valentino Rossi - who swapped them today in the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, in Valencia. Nevertheless, the Spanish circuit could be a little bit hostile and it isn’t one of the most suitable for both the vehicles.
We know that Valentino has an advantage because he already drove a Ferrari in 2006 and 2010, but we also know that cars are changing and, then, this exchange could be incredibly challenging for the Yamaha rider.
Hamilton, on the other hand, trained on a Yamaha Superbike R1 for two days, but as we know for sure, Superbike is much different than MotoGp. Moreover, the British driver tried the R1 with Alex Lowes in Jerez last year.
As the Italian sport daily, “Corriere dello Sport”, said, the exchange between Lewis Hamilton and Valentino Rossi already happened today, but unfortunately they raced against each other in a closed-door exhibition because the main sponsor who organized the event, Monster Energy, is planning to film a documentary that will come up in the next few weeks.
In addiction, they both shared on their social networks some pictures about the most awaited moment of all.
Super excited to swap rides with the legend Valentino Rossi very soon... Watch this space guys. You ready @ValeYellow46? 🏍💥💨 @MonsterEnergy @MercedesAMGF1 @YamahaMotoGP #LH44VR46 pic.twitter.com/yVcalan8Vo— Lewis Hamilton (@LewisHamilton) December 5, 2019
Furthermore the Italian wrote: "I think Lewis Hamilton and I will have some fun soon ".
For now all we can do is to wait the Monster Energy special about these two World Champions.
