In the round-up: Lewis Hamilton says he is “super-excited” about his planned ride swap with seven-times Moto GP champion Valentino Rossi.

What they say

Hamilton will ride a Moto GP bike and Rossi will test a Mercedes Formula 1 car in the event after this weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix:

I’m super-excited about it. I’ve been riding bikes for the last couple of years. I’ve only done like three days on a track but they’ve been incredible.

I’m always watching Moto GP, it’s great because there’s a small group of us within the team that love rising and it’s something I’ve always wanted to generally do since I was really young. But it’s pretty hardcore.

Just being on the same track at the same time as Valentino is going to be very, very surreal and a real honour because he just such an icon in the sport and he’s done so much for it. And it’s be cool to see him in my car as well.
