Joan Mir’s words
Joan Mir is not satisfied with how his season as reigning world champion is going: “I’m a little disappointed. The plan was to repeat 2020. I’m going faster, I have more points. others are faster. Before, going a little less than the limit, I was able to get on the podium, while now, even if I’m not far away, I don’t have the opportunity to fight to win. “
The Spaniard, however, still believes in an encore world champion: “The World Championship can be won. We have to improve the qualification, above all to fight to win the races and to put in difficulty Quartararo who, with a 65-point advantage, is very relaxed. We have to make him a little nervous”.
He comments on the relationship with his compatriot Marc Marquez: “He doesn’t like me? He’s a rival and I don’t have many friends here in the paddock. Maybe because I’ve always been a fan of Valentino Rossi, he never says my name when he speaks. maybe not even his “, he concluded laughing to the Gazzetta dello Sport.
