Hamilton keen on 'epic' F1-MotoGP crossover

Could an F1/MotoGP cross-over be coming soon?

Lewis Hamilton believes a potential cross-over weekend between Formula 1 and MotoGP would be "epic" after the recent Liberty Media takeover.

F1 owners Liberty recently purchased a 86% ownership stake of MotoGP and its owner Dorna Sports for just over €4 billion.

A cross-over between the two series has not been ruled out by MotoGP bosses, with Hamilton, who took part in a ride-swap with Valentino Rossi in 2019, believes any link-up would be a good thing.

"I didn't really think a lot about it, but obviously I read the headlines about it," Hamilton told media including RacingNews365 at Suzuka ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix.

"Liberty has done an amazing job with Formula 1, with the value of it [rising since the 2017 takeover], so I think they can do a great job with MotoGP.

"It is exciting because I love MotoGP, and it would be epic if we can have them on the same weekend.

"Maybe, I could do a race in MotoGP and race a Formula 1 car on the same weekend, that would be really cool [but] impossible."
