FIAT Yamaha rider Jorge Lorenzo has revealed that he would like to try out F1 machinery at some point in the future, although the Spaniard insists that he wouldn't want to switch to four-wheels as a future profession.
Following his dramatic victory on home soil at Jerez, Lorenzo was an interested spectator at Catalunya for the Spanish F1 Grand Prix, which was won in dominant fashion by the Red Bull of Mark Webber ahead of home hero Fernando Alonso.
Questioned by the BBC
on whether or not he felt team-mate Valentino Rossi would ever make the switch to F1, Lorenzo admitted he wasn't sure what decision the Italian would eventually make but said he himself would like the chance to sample at F1 car at some point in future.
"The F1 paddock has a lot of glamour but maybe on the track, there isn't the same kind of show as in bikes," he said. "But the technology of the car and the glamour of the people in the paddock is what makes F1 different.
"I don't know what Valentino will do, whether he will stay for another four years in MotoGP or go to this world, but I have a lot of things to do still in MotoGP.
"Maybe one day I would like to try an F1 car but not for a profession."
