Three-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton says he would like to race the Daytona 500 one day.

Heading into this weekend's Bahrain Grand Prix, most of the talk in the paddock has been centered around Fernando Alonso's decision to miss the Monaco Grand Prix to race in the Indianapolis 500.

Asked on Thursday if he would like to race elsewhere other than F1, Hamilton replied: "I wouldn't miss out any of the races in Formula One. I'd definitely continue to do all the races, but I'd like to do MotoGP. I'd like to ride a MotoGP [bike]. Is there another race? Probably a NASCAR race, like the Daytona 500 maybe."

Hamilton drove a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series car when he did a ride swap with Tony Stewart at the Watkins Glen International road course in New York in 2011. Hamilton was also on hand for the 2015 Cup series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida when Kyle Busch won the Championship.
