Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport reported the Mercedes F1 driver worked with Crescent during the test, which was organised by British track day firm No Limits, riding a completely black bike with stickers bearing his racing number 44.

His day was hampered by a small crash, but he escaped the incident without any injuries, and was able to continue riding afterwards.
