2020 MotoGP World Champion Joan Mir exudes confidence after a strong showing in Austin » FirstSportz

Joan Mir

At the Suzuki Ecstar driver Joan Mir won the 2020 MotoGP Championship, fans around the world cheered loudly as he was one of the most consistent riders on the track. In 2022 he’s upped his pace and been silent about his improvements, but now he’s clinched fourth place on the World Championship charts and is exuding confidence in his most recent post-Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas interview.

Joan Mir has never attempted to defeat rivals like Bastianini and Quartararo, but he has steadily but quietly moved to the front of the line. With MotoGP racing now heading to Europe, the Spaniard has already had some close podiums with back-to-back P4 finishes in Argentina and Austin. By the time the season opened in Qatar he had scored a P6 and then repeated his performance in Mandalika, Indonesia.

With some standard race results to give him a boost, Joan Mir is looking to enter the European leg of the championship with guns blazing. His teammate Alex Rins has finished second in the championship, just behind Bastianini. With the unfolding of this new campaign, each bike manufacturer can secure the top spot, with riders having the chance to earn 25 points in their championship results at each race.

At this point, Mir’s steady improvement speaks a lot for his potential podium finishes in the future. Even when he became world champion in 2020, he had always claimed that consistency was his only key to this place.

Ahead of the Portuguese Grand Prix weekend, Mir needs 15 points to catch current World Championship leaders Enea Bastianini. After the race ended in COTA, Joan Mir’s team’s crew chief said he had never seen the rider so confident and it was one of the best performances of Mir’s career.

When asked about his performance, Mir said: “It’s a track where if you don’t like driving you’re always missing out, isn’t it? Finishing here in fourth place is something great, it means we are making positive steps forward.

He further said: “We came from behind that the last part of the race was positive. And step by step I overtook and felt great. So [I’m] happy with how everything is going, fourth place is always a place you don’t want to finish in, better either fifth or third [laughs] but anyway, it’s great.

Overall, it’s safe to say that Joan Mir is in a good place right now. He keeps a cool head and steers calmly through the race track. With teammate Alex Rins at his side, the Suzuki Ecstar rider can hope for some good results with podiums and even race wins in the near future.
