McLaren's Fernando Alonso and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series star Jimmie Johnson will be trading places at the end of the month in Bahrain.
The two-time F1 world champion and the Hendrick Motorsports driver will meet up in Bahrain on November 26 for the mother of all car swaps!
The pair teased their upcoming switch in a short video released on social media, in which Johnson calls Alonso to tell him that he's "been thinking about some things…".
"I have this feeling too.." responds the Spaniard before the pair ask in unison "Will you let me drive your car?"

Johnson won't be stepping into Alonso's Grand Prix car unprepared however. After this year's Nascar Cup finale at Homestead on November 18, the American will head for Woking where he will spend the necessary hours in McLaren's simulator before joining the team at Abu Dhabi.
Everyone will then meet up in Bahrain for an exciting day of 'trading places'!
