Memorias espectaculares e imborrables en la corta historia de Fórmula E. Algo que muy pocos pilotos como @lucasdigrassi podrían lograr. 👏🏼💪🏼⚡️🏆 • @fiaformulae Where were YOU watching the Hong Kong race from when @lucasdigrassi went from 19th place to 2nd?! #abbformulae#racing#motorsport
In 2018, MotoGP stars Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa swapped their regular two-wheeled machines, for a four-wheeled monster, in a test at the Red Bull Ring. Using what was actually a Red Bull RB8, decked out in current Toro Rosso livery and with Pirelli show tyres, the Spanish riders were coached by ex-Red Bull F1 driver Mark Webber in an event that was also attended by Helmut Marko, Niki Lauda, Dietrich Mateschitz and Honda motorsport chief Masashi Yamamoto. - Following simulator sessions, Marquez and Pedrosa were given 3 flying laps at the Red Bull Ring and were set a target laptime of 1:13.396, by Webber. Marquez mainly struggled with gear shifts and braking points, with the 5x MotoGP Champion eventually able to post a fastest lap of 1:14.608. Webber and Marquez were both satisfied with this, despite falling short of the target time. Dani Pedrosa managed a highly impressive laptime of 1:13.622, which was around a second faster than Marquez' effort and a mere 0.226 secs away from the target set by Webber. - Helmut Marko certainly seemed happy with proceedings, saying "To put that kind of performance in within such a short time says everything about his huge talent," of Marquez, via Sky Sports F1, going on to confirm that the Spaniard will get more opportunities in an F1 car. Marquez himself declared that, "maybe Formula 1 will be a serious idea for me in a few years' time!". Despite Pedrosa's outstanding performance, there has never been any official confirmation, from Red Bull or elsewhere, that Pedrosa will pursue F1 in the future. - All very interesting stuff. With that in mind, are there any drivers from other series that you feel an F1 team should give a test? Anybody from F2, FE, IndyCar, MotoGP, NASCAR, or any series that you can think of. 🏁🏁 | CREDITS: MOTORSPORT IMAGES | #f1#formulaone#f1news#f1memes#f1pics#formula2#abbformulae#singaporegp#russiangp#motogp#redbullracing#redbullring#scuderiatororosso#repsolhonda#hondamotorsports
