Moscow: Ace McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton has endorsed the idea of conducting a competitive Grand Prix race during the night in the streets of Moscow after falling in love with the Russian capital’s scenic beauty.
Hamilton was showing off his moves as part of the finale of the Moscow City Racing event along with Marussia``s Charles Pic and Ferarri test-driver Giancarlo Fisichella.
The former champion is gearing up for a personal landmark of 100 F1 races at Hockenheim on July 22
“I’ve seen some images of Moscow at night and it looks absolutely spectacular. So, I think, having a night race here one day, as we do in Singapore, would be one of the highlights of our season,” The Daily Mail quoted Hamilton, as saying.
“I hope that you guys welcome us. A street circuit around a city is the most exciting thing. You see the lights, you see the architecture, you get to see so many incredible things when you’re racing,” he added.
Russia is currently preparing to host their first Grand Prix in 2014 in Sochi.
