Mir: "The airbag went off because they thought I was falling"

The Spaniard has been out of the decisive qualifying round for three consecutive Grands Prix, which makes up the top twelve positions on the grid.

In Assen he will start 14th, from the fifth row, and with a lot of work ahead of him if he wants this Sunday to be the turning point that allows him to break the negative dynamics in which both he and Suzuki, in general, navigate, since the Hamamatsu brand announced that this season will be the last in which it competes in MotoGP.

Mir was one of the drivers who was affected by the series of yellow flags that were shown in the last moments of the third free practice session, and that made his last laps not count.

That led to him having to play for a place in Q2, but the lack of stability of his GSX-RR , and a crash as a result, prevented him from qualifying for the final round.

“The last moments of the third free practice session were chaos because of the yellow flags. Then I crashed in Q1 and tried to get back out. We have to improve,” summed up Mir, who is still looking for the first podium of the season.

“My airbag went off in the second sector, and that is because I lack stability in the fast corners. I think the problem comes from the rear of the bike. But we are not well, and in no case could I be fighting for the two first rows. In that case, starting from the third row, the fourth or the fifth, hardly changes”, deepened the Balearic, who still does not reveal where he will run next year, even though the entire paddock takes it for granted that he will He will wear the Repsol Honda team suit.

Regarding the signing by Aprilia of José Manuel Cazeaux, Alex Rins’ track engineer, and how these types of movements can affect Suzuki’s results for the rest of the season, the 2020 world champion understands it is normal that all members of Suzuki seek to ensure the future: “You have to look for life, each one has to look for his own”. At the same time, the Palma runner wants to think that this type of operation will not make the troops lose focus.

“It’s a complicated situation, but the technicians are professionals and they have to stay focused until the last race,” Mir stressed.
