MotoGP: Honda Repsol signs with Suzuki’s Joan Mir

It’s official; The 2020 MotoGP champion has just been signed to the Honda REPSOL team – and given Suzuki’s intentions to leave MotoGP, Honda are planning to have Mir alongside Marc Marquez for the next season could not be better prepared.

Of course, the young runner must first repair the fracture suffered in his right foot following his heckling at the Redbull Ring; with the last 9 races sporting six DNFs (Did Not Finish), new blood on a new mount means new results for Mir’s transcript, allowing him to gracefully end his time with Suzuki.

And that’s definitely something to celebrate.

“We will take advantage of my experience accumulated over the years in MotoGP with Suzuki to contribute as much as possible to the project and fight together to become world champions again.”

“Now it’s time to keep focusing on my recovery to get back on the tracks as soon as possible and have a great end to the season with Team Suzuki Ecstar.”
