Reigning F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton has said that Formula One is broken and MotoGP is a better championship.

Speaking to Autosport magazine, after the penultimate day of testing at Barcelona, Hamilton was asked if F1 was: “Broken, lacking direction, or in rude health?”


He answered: “I would probably say the first two you suggested.”

He was then asked about his interest in MotoGP and the Brit said that he not only wanted to get to more races but that he also wants to ride one of the prototype race bikes. Autosport has quoted the Champ as saying: “MotoGP is just so cool, much more exciting to watch, I would say, just because it’s closer racing.

“I really need to try a MotoGP bike. I’m dying to at least get on the back of one. That would be so cool. I just won’t tell my team that I’m doing it! I definitely want to make it to more races this year – I’ve only been to one in a season, and I want to get to some more.”


Hamilton entered into a partnership with MV Agusta in 2015 producing a limited edition version of the company’s Dragster under his name, Hamilton has been well documented as an eager motorcyclist for years and has been photographed riding superbikes to and from F1 races.
