Lewis Hamilton found himself in the headlines for action on two wheels over the weekend after it emerged that had had taken a test spin on World Superbikes machinery in Jerez over the weekend. The five-time Formula 1 champion reportedly escaped uninjured after taking a fall and shared some clips from behind the scenes of his run.
Hamilton is a known fan of action on two wheels and has previously teased the idea of taking part in MotoGP or World Superbikes.
He had a chance to sample the action at Jerez as he tested the YZF-R1 bike used by Yamaha-backed WSBK teams in 2018.
Hamilton's ride was blacked-out, with only his racing number – 44 – featured on the underside of the saddle.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Hamilton took a spill at Jerez's turn five, but was soon up and back on two wheels again.
The Brit shared a series of clips on his Instagram page, revealing that WSBK competitors Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark had also been in attendance.
