bull mello commented on the post, Hamilton keen to get back on a bike again

In the round-up: Lewis Hamilton indicates he’s planning to further his Superbike education but says he isn’t looking to get into bike racing.

What they say

Hamilton was asked about his plans to attend this weekend’s Moto GP season-opener in Qatar:

I have always been in love with the bike. I’m really excited: I’m not going to get to see the whole race I don’t think but I’m really intrigued to go and see how the riders operate, how different qualifying is compared to our qualifying. The feedback, the things they’re working.

I’m going to be using it as an experience to learn a little bit. But don’t look too much into that, I’m too old to do the Moto GP. I’m not bounce-proof like young Marquez! But I still have some fun.

I’m always full throttle, that’s the only way I know how to go. But when I did the Superbike I wasn’t keen to get to full throttle the same as the Superbike riders so there’s a lot to learn. It’s a completely different style of riding compared to driving. It’s an exciting one to learn.
