Hamilton would love MotoGP ride

Lewis Hamilton has revealed he would love to ride a MotoGP bike one day.

The three-time Formula One world champion, who trails Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel by 14 points in the drivers' standings, has long been a MotoGP fan and rides a motorbike in his spare time.

But Hamilton says racing one would be a new challenge for him.

"I love bikes - I don't really drive too much off-track, I tend to ride my MV Agusta bikes around," the Mercedes driver told Monster Energy.

"The sense of freedom you get is amazing when it's just you and the bike. But racing one would be a whole different proposition.

"I'm a big fan of MotoGP; it's just a very cool series. I would really love to get my hands on a MotoGP bike one day."
