MotoGP star Jorge Lorenzo tests 2014 Mercedes F1 car at Silverstone (VIDEO)


Jorge Lorenzo may be best known for his escapades on a MotoGP bike, clinching three world championships through his career in the premier class of motorcycle racing, but the Spaniard was recently given the chance to impress in a Formula 1 car with Mercedes.

Lorenzo completed running behind the wheel of the Mercedes W05 Hybrid from 2014, which claimed 16 out of a possible 19 wins with Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

Ahead of this weekend’s championship decider in Abu Dhabi, Mercedes and sponsor Monster Energy have released a video of Lorenzo’s test as he gets to grips with the car.

Lorenzo followed the Mercedes test by winning his final MotoGP race for Yamaha in Valencia, before completing his first test for new team Ducati two days later.
