Incredible day was lived in the Ricardo Tormo circuit of Valencia. The penultimate date of the championship of MotoGP left as the undisputed leader of the classification Joan Mir. The Spanish was able to achieve the long-awaited victory and took advantage of an error of Fabio Quartararo to increase your advantage. Further, Suzuki is shaping up to be the best team of the year.
With a very bumpy start, Pol Espargaró he couldn’t capitalize on the pole position he got on Saturday. As a consequence of this, the track was clear for both Suzuki riders. Alex Rins he took the post, but had a mistake at the entrance of a curve (or so it seemed), which left him empty-handed. From there, Joan Mir was unattainable.
The championship seems to be cursed for the team Yamaha. Upon reaching Valencia they found that they would lose the first position in the constructors’ championship. The organization sanctioned the Japanese brand with points deduction, after some anomalies in the engines of the first races. That is why the points harvested in the first two tests were taken from him.
When the championship began, Fabio Quartararo was the great candidate to win his first MotoGP title. Especially after the two victories obtained in Jerez and the absence of Marc Márquez. However, the French rider deflated as the dates went by and today he looked like a rookie. In the first lap of the race he went to the ground and let his chances of being champion slip away.
Joan Mir is with his first match ball to sentence the history of the Motorcycle World Championship. The Spaniard has 162 points after his first victory. Fabio Quartararo was left with 125, since he added only 2 in Valencia. Álex Rins climbed to third place in the classification, with the same amount as Quartararo. The top four closes it Maverick Viñales.
