Several-time MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo has made his maiden appearance in a Formula 1 car, having tested the 2014 World Championship-winning Mercedes W05 earlier this week in Silverstone.

Lorenzo, like three-time and defending World Champion Lewis Hamilton, is supported by Monster Energy and as such, the Spaniard had a chance to sample the two-year old car.

Both the team and Lorenzo posted about it on social media; pics are below.
