Come next year Moto2 ace, Joan Mir will ride in the premier class, after Suzuki promoted the 2017 Moto3 champion.

The 20-year-old will partner Alex Rins, as a replacement for Andrea Iannone on a Suzuki GSX-RR for the next two years.

Mir emerged as an ace on the MotoGP circuit after winning the Moto3 in 2017.

“Joan Mir is only 20 years old now, already a world champion with an impressive 10 wins last year,” said team manager Davide Brivio.

 

“He is fierce, he is witty, he is nice and he can be very fast. All the characteristics that we like to search for in a young rider, who wants to join us not only for the prestige of a factory machine in the top class but most of all because he believes in our racing project.

 

“Talking to him I realised how much he has a clear mind, how much he liked our Suzuki project and wanted to join us. This has been a great boost for us.

 

“Of course, we know very well that he will need time to gain experience and grow with us, but we have full confidence in his potential.”
