After 2021 MotoGP champion Fabio Quartararo spent a day surfing with Lewis Hamilton, he was asked if he would like to test drive a Mercedes F1 car.
On Wednesday Lewis Hamilton and Fabio Quartararo spent a fun day on electric surfboards and jet skis, so ahead of the MotoGP British Grand Prix, the French rider was asked if he would like to test drive a Mercedes Formula 1 car.
“About Mercedes, it’s something I’m working to, it’s not something planned yet,” Fabio said.
“But of course it would be something that I would love to try. I’ve been to the simulator, I’ve been in the car but I’ve never had a chance to test it.
“I spent a really nice day with Lewis, but we were not talking about racing, just having fun on the surf and the jet ski.

“It was a good day,” Quartararo concluded.
It would be natural for Quartararo to test drive a Mercedes, as his Yamaha team shares the Petronas and Monster Energy sponsorship.
Additionally, ahead of the 2021 British Grand Prix he completed 50 laps in Mercedes’ simulator at Brackley, and afterwards said the experience was “amazing”, and added he’s “love to drive” an F1 car.
