The year 2021 has entered the month of December, and Suzuki Ecstar racer , Joan Mir , already has a list of New Year’s resolutions for 2022, one of which is to win the MotoGP world title again . This he conveyed in a blog he wrote for Suzuki 2021 Winter Magazine which was released on Tuesday (14/12/2021).
As is well known, 2021 was not Mir’s best season, especially considering he had won the year before. This Spaniard ended the season in third place and collected six podiums. However, he has not won again since the European MotoGP at Valencia in 2020.
Mir has also learned a lot from this season. For example, the most important key is to keep fighting. Throughout the season, I fought really hard and finally got good results at the end of the year. In the process, I learned to work hard and never give up,” he wrote. .
Enjoy Comeback Action
At the beginning of the season, Mir stumbled due to the weak performance of the GSX-RR motorcycle on the single lap so that Suzuki was always sluggish in the qualifying session. However, towards the end of the season, their form began to look to improve in that area, making it easier for Mir and Alex Rins to fight at the front, although still not winning.
Even though this year was not brilliant, I really enjoyed my comeback , all the fights and great overtaking. I am satisfied to end the season in third place after fighting tough competitors,” said Mir.
The racer who is also the 2017 Moto3 world champion also confirmed progress on the latest GSX-RR which he had tested in the Jerez test, Spain, on November 18-19 last. Mir is happy that the bike’s agility in corners remains, and feels the increase in the rear ride height device. However, top speed is still a big PR.
World Degree Becomes Main Target Until Retirement
The Jerez test went well, and we will be back in Sepang. My first impression of the progress of the bike is quite good, and this makes me want to get back to fighting soon. But , it is also important to see our strengths and weaknesses,” said Mir.
Mir will also return to the track in pre-season trials in Sepang, Malaysia, 5-6 February, and Mandalika, Indonesia, 11-13 February. He also hopes to find greater progress from Suzuki in both trials, so that he can return to fierce competition for the world title in 2022.
However, the main thing is that I want to win the title again. That will always be my main focus, and this will not change until I stop racing. Obviously I want to win titles, to win, to podiums and to share moments. -That moment with the fans who really support me,” he concluded.
