The Aragon Grand Prix left many things to take into account. The change of positions in the championship MotoGP is one of them. Fabio Quartararo left the tip of the calcification after a race for oblivion. The fall he had on Saturday left him physical consequences and his motorcycle did not respond as it had done throughout the weekend at the MotorLand circuit.
The new leader of the championship is Joan Mir. The Spaniard had a very sober performance and left Quartararo with no chance of winning first place in the championship. In addition, he will face the final stretch of the season with the ‘tranquility’ that to be a MotoGP Champion, he only depends on his performances.
The Frenchman lost the lead and began to despair. He had achieved an unthinkable pole after his fall, and showed that to achieve his goals, he had to sacrifice. However, as soon as his performance began, he collapsed and in just seven laps he had already lost ten positions in the race classifier. Finally, he did not score any points and finished in the second to last position.
The new championship leader came very close to taking the victory, but settled for third place. The Spanish was very intelligent knowing that Quartararo was not going to add units due to his position. He defended himself very well against the attacks of Maverick Viñales and sealed the leadership of the World Cup. The last pilot of Suzuki who led a world championship was Kenny Roberts, in 2000.
The state of the championship after Aragon
Looking ahead to the Teruel Grand Prix, again at MotorLand, Joan Mir is the first in the championship. The Spaniard has 121 points, against Fabio Quartararo’s 115. In addition, Maverick Viñales managed to get quite close, and finished this date with 109 units with four races remaining to end the 2020 season.
