The team Suzuki It was one of the most even of the 2020 season. In that way, and with two very talented drivers, he won the title of MotoGP, in a championship that seemed to be defined on the last date. Yamaha’s decline throughout the championship and the consistency they generated Alex Rins and the new driver’s champion, Joan MirThey were fundamental to be able to beat the rest of the teams. However, this year, Rins is aiming for a much bigger fight within Suzuki. “I feel number 1,” he stressed.
Joan Mir took the title due to his great ability to handle pressure and criticism. The Spaniard took several races to achieve his first victory, and managed to be the best of the entire grid with a single crown in the year. His partner, Alex Rins, was his great bulwark. However, this year everything will be different. In the search for the double, Mir will have to show the talent that led him to the title, while Rins does not want to be left behind.
Rins warns and does not want to betray. He knows that this year he has a great opportunity to beat a World Champion, with the same bike. Although he was left with the desire in 2020, the main objective for 2021 is to win the World Cup, something that his partner will seek in the same way. Although Mir is the king, Rins does not want there to be favorites, he knows that he is a candidate and he will not give anything to anyone.
“I feel like number one on my team. I work very well with my team, strong; and there has never been any problem. We know that this year has happened what has happened. I was honestly happy. I liked that staying at Suzuki. If it wasn’t me, let it be him. So my main objective is to beat the rider next door and this year we are going to try ”.
Finally, the Spaniard assures that this year will be very difficult, due to the high competitiveness of the rivals of the other teams. Because of this, he knows that a return of Marc Márquez it could complicate things. “It is complicated because there will be many drivers fighting. In 2020 there were many fights in many races. This year is going to be similar. I would like to see him there (A Márquez). In the end he is a very strong rider, you learn a lot from him when he is on the track ”, he declared.
