The LCR team makes the signing of Alex Rins official

At 26 years old and after six seasons in MotoGP, all of them wearing the Suzuki suit, the Catalan will change brands in 2023 , forced by the slam of the big S manufacturer, who will leave the championship at the end of the course after taking a sudden decision and that leaves most of the members of the team in the street.

Waiting for Joan Mir and Honda to close the agreement they have been working on for months, and which should lead to the Majorcan landing in the official HRC workshop, alongside Marc Márquez, Rins signed the agreement a couple of weeks ago which will make him a broker in the Lucio Cecchinello structure, even though his contract links him directly to the golden wing company.

Rins currently occupies ninth position in the classification reserved for drivers, with 75 points, two less than Mir, after having missed the Dutch Grand Prix as a result of the crash he suffered in Montmeló, where Takaaki Nakagami took him led ahead.

Honda, which is going through the most delicate moment in its history and which, with the long-term absence of Márquez, occupies the last place in the classification reserved for manufacturers, hopes to take advantage of the experience of the Cervera (Lleida), Mir and de Rins to turn the RC213V around. The latest version of the prototype generated a lot of expectations in preseason, even though so far, after the first 11 stops on the calendar, it has only garnered one podium, that of Pol Espargaró at the start of the World Championship, in Qatar.

“I am delighted to announce that Alex Rins will race with the LCR team in 2023. Rins is an experienced rider, fast and one of those who usually gets on the podium,” says Lucio Cecchinello, in the concise message posted by the Monegasque team on his Facebook profile.

“The experience we have, hand in hand with his ability to transmit the right comments to the technicians, as they have told us, will help us take a step forward with our bike,” the former rider emphasizes.

What is still not clear is who will be his neighbor in the workshop, given the poor performance exhibited by Nakagami , combined with the regularity exhibited by Ai Ogura , who is fighting for the title in Moto2 –he is only one point behind the lead– and who he’s the best placed to get that second Honda.
