Lewis Hamilton races Cal Crutchlow on track, admits MotoGP is ‘more hardcore’ than F1

When F1 meets MotoGP...

Lewis Hamilton and Cal Crutchlow

'WHAT [Cal Crutchlow] does is more hardcore than F1’, Lewis Hamilton has admitted, after he joined the MotoGP race winner on track.

Not that we didn’t know that already, but I digress.

In a video made by their mutual sponsor Monster Energy, four-time F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton joined Crutchlow in Southern California, where the pair took to Chuckwalla Valley Raceway on superbikes.

‘Cal invited me down for a day at the track,’ says Hamilton, in the minute-long short.

‘We're out here doing something completely different to what Lewis normally does and having some good fun,’ adds Crutchlow.

Hamilton is a keen motorcyclist, and is even endorsed by Italian manufacturer MV Agusta, and helped to create his own limited edition model, the F4 L44.

He is also a big fan of two-wheeled racing, although admits that the discipline is on a different level to his own.

‘What's [Cal] does is more hardcore than F1,’ the 33-year-old said.

‘The speeds these guys do, it's insane. I'll be back here pushing. The back end has been sliding out. Now I'm hooked.’

So now we've seen Hamilton on a superbike, is Crutchlow about to get behind the wheel?
