Mir has not recovered well and considers "stopping" after Saturday's FP3

The 2020 world champion suffered a hair-raising crash on the first lap of the Austrian race and missed the San Marino Grand Prix and the official Misano tests through injury.

After two long weeks of intense rehabilitation, the Suzuki rider appeared this Thursday in the preview of the Aragón Grand Prix with courage and optimism for his reappearance.

However, for Joan Mir things did not go as expected and he finished the day 21st on the time sheet, with the Majorcan looking like he had many problems stopping the bike under heavy braking.

“I’m a little disappointed, we’ve worked a lot to get here with a good feeling and it’s worse than I expected, I can’t do the force I should with the brake lever, and in the right-hand corners I can’t put my foot down, no I can turn and I have to adapt to what the pain leaves me, it’s not what I expected,” Mir explained this Friday at MotorLand .

“Let’s see how we recover tonight and how I get up tomorrow, if I’m better and I can ride in a more acceptable way, it makes sense to continue, but if I’m going to be the same as today, without being able to get one hundred percent out of the bike and the riding , perhaps we will have to stop for a few days,” he warned.

Mir was asked if forcing the injured foot could affect recovery when he is on the verge of a 3-pointer and five runs in six weeks.

“I don’t know if the recovery can go backwards, but if I continue I’m sure I won’t recover as quickly as if I were standing or undergoing rehabilitation, and this can slow down the issue. We have to assess the situation well tomorrow. I didn’t expect it, I’m surprised, we have worked a lot to be here and now living all this is giving me a little laziness”, he lamented.

The moment to make the decision in one way or another will be after going out on the track in the morning.

“After FP3 we will decide if I continue. Now I am disappointed and that is why it looks worse, but we have to work as much as possible and more now to understand what is happening and where we can be tomorrow,” settled the Spaniard.
