Following in the footsteps of MotoGP legends Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo, six-time world champion Marc Marquez has had his first taste of Formula 1 at the wheel of a Toro Rosso at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria.
In attendance to keep an eye on the Spaniard were grand prix winner Mark Webber, Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko and Mercedes non-executive chairman and three-time F1 world champion Niki Lauda.
Previously Rossi and Lorenzo have tested Formula 1 cars previously, Ferrari and Mercedes respectively, with Marquez now getting to sample the Toro Rosso.
John Surtees in the only man to have won world titles in Formula 1 and MotoGP (of the time) with two-wheel legend Mike Hailwood also changing to Formula 1 with less success.
Experiencia increíble conduciendo un F1! Sin palabras para describirlo, muy contento! 🏎
