Hamilton enjoys Le Mans MotoGP visit
20 May 2013 – Lewis Hamilton took time out of his schedule to watch MotoGP at Le Mans, France on Sunday. The Mercedes driver, who toured the pit lane and met with riders including Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, was hosted by Monster Energy, a sponsor of the Silver Arrows in F1 and a well-known brand in the top echelon of motorcycle racing.
"It was great to meet Valentino, I’m a huge fan of his," said Hamilton. "I also swapped helmets with the great Jorge Lorenzo. It was a mega day. I have always been a huge fan of MotoGP but never had the chance to watch it live... but I watch every race on TV!"
Dani Pedrosa claimed his second victory of the season at Le Mans, while Britain's Cal Crutchlow (featured with Hamilton above) and Marc Márquez completed the podium.
