Lewis Hamilton and Valentino Rossi swapped machines in Valencia earlier this week. Up until now there's been no video footage of the event, but finally, some footage has been released. 

It looks like both Rossi and Hamilton enjoyed themselves. From what we can see, both drivers spent a considerable amount of time using each other's equipment. The swap was made possible by sponsor Monster: the energy drink manufacturer sponsors both the Formula 1 team from Mercedes and the MotoGP team from Yamaha.

Combined, Hamilton and Rossi have won 13 world championships. The Doctor, who turns 41 in February, is currently contracted to race in the 2020 MotoGP season while Hamilton hunts down Michael Schumacher's elusive title record.
