“We are still in the adaptation phase”


The Spanish MotoGP rider Joan Mir (Repsol Honda) stated on Tuesday that the start of the new season has been “very intense”, despite being “still in the adaptation phase”, for which he hopes to complete an Argentine Grand Prix “without incident” to “keep building” and “do more miles”.

“It has been a very intense start to the year as we head straight into the next race. For us, who are still in the adaptation phase, it is positive because we can have more time on the bike and immediately test some new ideas. In Portimao We had an uneven weekend, so I hope that this weekend everything runs smoothly and I can do more kilometers on the bike,” Mir said in a statement published by Repsol.

The Spaniard added his first points at the start of the course in Portimao with a creditable eleventh place, after a great comeback in the race. “The goal is to continue building and improve our speed in both races. In 2022 I achieved a good result in Termas, so let’s see what we can do this year,” said the driver, who already won in Argentina in 2017, his third year in Moto3, while last year he was at the gates of the podium.

Mir will not be accompanied by Marc Márquez at Termas de Río Hondo, after he underwent surgery after fracturing a bone in his right hand in his fall in the race on Sunday. “I want to wish Marc the best in his recovery, it’s always better to drive by his side on the track and have him in the box,” said the Spaniard before the second GP of the year, which will also include the sprint race, on Saturday 8:00 p.m.
