    Marquez to test Red Bull F1 car

    Four-time MotoGP champion Marc Marquez is all-set to try out a Formula 1 car for the first time as part of a Red Bull-organised private test that will take place in Austria next month. Marquez's Honda MotoGP team-mate Dani Pedrosa and nine-time motocross world champion Tony Cairoli will also take part in the test that will be held the Red Bull Ring on June 5-6, 2018.

    It remains unclear exactly what type of car will be used by the three riders in the test, but it is likely to be V8-powered and therefore dating from 2013, or earlier.

    Marquez, Pedrosa and Cairoli will all head to Red Bull's F1 headquarters in Milton Keynes in the coming days for seat fittings and to spend time on the team's simulator.

    This Red Bull initiative mirrors that of their rival energy drink firm Monster, two years ago, when they arranged a test for Jorge Lorenzo in Lewis Hamilton's 2014 title-winning Mercedes at Silverstone.
