Seven-time world motorcycle champion Valentino Rossi has successfully passed the seat of a Mercedes F1 car, which he will test on the track in Valencia next week, with Lewis Hamilton sitting on his motorcycle.

The event will take place under the auspices of the sponsors of both Monster Energy racers and is scheduled for December 9, when the three champions will head south of Spain. While Lewis Hamilton will test out the Yamaha M1 MotoGP Championships, Valentino Rossi will sit at the wheel of a Mercedes.
Although Hamilton has ridden motorcycles several times, this will be the first ever MotoGP motorcycle test for the British.
On the other hand, Rossi is no stranger to racing with the F1 car, as the Italian has repeatedly tested Ferrari racing cars in the past.
