Fabio Quartararo, the current MotoGP winner, may be scheduled for a final-quarter F1 test with Mercedes.
Quartararo might become the next to switch from two wheels to four in a special test with Mercedes, perhaps after in the footsteps of nine-time former champion Valentino Rossi, who raced a Ferrari F1 car on many times while still riding in MotoGP, most famously in 2006.
Quartararo expressed hope to race an F1 car in the near future while watching the French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard, a race in which Max Verstappen claimed a dominant win after Charles Leclerc shockingly fell out from the lead.
“We are working to be able to get on a Formula 1 at the end of the year, so we cross our fingers,” Quartararo told DAZN on the starting grid. “Formula 1 is very different from MotoGP, but I like it a lot. I hope to be able to get into a car one day.”
Quartararo will be conducting a Mercedes test towards the end of the year, so keep an eye out for that, according to longtime Sky Sports F1 pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz, who said as much on Sky.
The rider who currently leads the 2022 MotoGP season by one point over Aleix Espargaro has once more been on fire.
The last race before the summer vacation, in Assen, saw Espargaro and final race champion Francesco Bagnaia retake the lead in preparation for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, which will take place the following month.
Quartararo, who has a strong admiration for seven-time F1 winner Lewis Hamilton and vice versa, is set to take the wheel of the #44 vehicle, as he did on Sunday.
If Quartararo does drive a Mercedes F1 car, it will be the 2nd visit in four years that a Yamaha factory racer has done so.
2019 saw Rossi and Hamilton trade off their individual W08 and M1 motorcycles in the Valencia area. Rossi is Hamilton’s motorcycle hero.
