A few weeks ago, Jorge Lorenzo had the chance to test the Mercedes Formula 1 W05 Hybrid at Silverstone. He was quite enthusiastic about the experience and he worked hard with his usual professionalism.
In the video above, you can see the summary of those days in England where the Majorcan learned a lot about the F1 world. “Riding a bike is like walking for me, but cars are something new” he explained.
First he took on the simulator and then he climbed into the cockpit of the Mercedes with Silverstone as his playground. “A dream that will come true” is how Jorge defined it.
Class is uncommon and the five-time world champion impressed the Formula 1 engineers as well.
“The power is incredible, but the most fantastic thing is the speed on the corners. The ones you take in first gear on a bike, in the F1 car you take in third”, he described the car.
