Joan Mir admits being “angry” at losing his chances for the MotoGP title has he believes he is “a better rider.”

Why it matters: The recent results from the reigning World Champion have placed him too far in the points from the lead.


  • Quartararo’s advantage to Mir is now of 67 points, something hard to recover from with only 4 races left in the calendar.
  • Mir admitted being angry because he believes his potential this year was better than in the 2020 season.

What he had to say:

  • “I’m a bit angry because I know my potential of this year and I’m angry because I’m riding better, I’m making less mitakes, I’m a better rider and I will not get the championship.”
  • “It’s difficult to understand. But, what also I have to say is making me happy is Suzuki going in the same direction.”
