Four-time MotoGP champion Marc Marquez drove a Formula 1 car for the first time at the Red Bull Ring on Tuesday.

The Honda factory rider completed 43 laps behind the wheel of a 2012 Red Bull in Toro Rosso colors at a special test convened to promote the forthcoming F1 and MotoGP races at the Austrian circuit, before handing over to current Honda MotoGP teammate Dani Pedrosa in the afternoon.

Marquez was watched by Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko, Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz, Honda motorsport boss Masashi Yamamoto and Mercedes non-executive chairman Niki Lauda, and coached by nine-time grand prix winner and former Red Bull F1 driver Mark Webber.
