MotoGP – Mir: "In Misano I wanted to finish the year; not now"

Portimao.- The Spaniard closed the front row of the starting grid, something he hadn’t achieved since the Styrian Grand Prix last year, even though he did it on that occasion after benefiting from a sanction imposed on Johann Zarco. To find the last time that the Suzuki rider qualified on the front row, you had to go back to his time in Moto3, in 2017.

Starting out ahead, of course, had a direct impact on his expectations for the race, in which he repeated the best result of the course to date (Styria).

The victory of Pecco Bagnaia, in any case, automatically gave the Ducati the runner-up in the world that was disputed with the Spanish.

Despite this, Joan Mir was happy to have managed to turn around the bad vibes with which he left Misano two weeks ago.

“Pecco did a great job, I couldn’t hunt him down. I have to be happy; We had a great weekend and we finished it off well. Starting from the front row is another story, you forget about many problems”, summed up Mir, who will finish this 2021 in third place in the points table.

“I am happy, not only for finishing second, but for how we competed. Pecco was impeccable. This time we start the weekend without nerves, with a more competitive package, and that’s how it goes to the races in a different way”, added the rider from Palma, much more encouraged by how he left San Marino, where he went to the ground at the first change: “In Misano I wanted the season to end; Now I don’t want it to end.”
