Kevin Schwantz Joan Mir can win more titles from Marc Márquez for sure
Kevin Schwantz got up early again to watch the MotoGP race, as he does with all of them. It was 7am in Austin, but I was excited and I knew it was worth it. His brand, Suzuki, won the title with Joan Mir, the one he conquered in 1993. To celebrate, and to relax … he went fishing .Later, the Texan told MARCA how he lived this peculiar day. ” It was a great day : Joan Mir finished seventh and secured the world title. For me, it is a really special feeling . It has been a very long time for Suzuki, since 2000 with Kenny Roberts Jr. when they won the World Cup, it is 20 years. It is a long period between both championships, although I know they raced, left and came back. It is an incredible achievement. Rins was also fighting for the World Cup and will fight with Morbidelli for second. It will be interesting to see what happens in Portugal, “he commented.’El Pajarito’, as he was baptized in Spain in his time as an active pilot, has no doubt about the justice of this crown. He believes that not even the absence of the previous champion subtracts an iota of value. “Joan Mir deserved this World Cup. No one gave it to him. Yes, we can say: where was Marc Márquez? But he was not lost. He was doing his job . He was not there because he was injured. Nothing more to say, for nothing that came from outside, nothing that can detract from his merits, nothing dark behind. He just made a mistake and part of racing is making mistakes at the world championships. Joan Mir won this World Cup. He can say: ‘I won this World Cup and everything the world was there. ” Also Marc Márquez, because it was there at the beginning. Then he was out for the rest of the races, but he was at the beginning of the season, “he says vehemently.The American legend also does not doubt that the Spaniard is more than capable of repeating wound in the not too distant future. ” Joan Mir can win more World Cups, for sure . He is 23 years old and with the maturity he has shown, the speed, the consistency throughout the season. He made a mistake at the beginning, but everyone made mistakes this year. they cost more points than others. This is how this game is. You had to be there until the end and that’s what Joan did, “he says.The North American myth also praises Rins , Joan’s companion. “Rins showed great speed at the end of the season, but he was in a big hole part of the season because of his injury at the beginning. He missed that race, came back to the next one, but couldn’t run well. He missed a lot of points there. He also made a mistake in Austria, when he was in front and had a great chance to win. Joan also saw that red flag that prevented him from winning. Suzuki should have a couple more victories that fell by the wayside. Both riders have done a great job. They both have a great future ahead of them. That what they do within Suzuki is totally up to them, but I think they have a really good house there, “he explains.Of course, Schwantz predicts that there may be a certain pique in the Japanese box, but advises both to remain in the Japanese formation. “The same if next season they go to their ball, and the competition becomes more ‘hot’ between them , maybe someone decides to go elsewhere, who knows. Or maybe both of them. But what Joan Mir achieved, and also with Álex Rins, it ‘s thanks to the team’s effort . This World Championship is thanks to the development that the team made with the bike. They gave good instructions and had good feedback (response). All the team’s engineers, including those from Hamamatsu, They did a great job. It’s great to see them and it makes me very happy, “he says.Joan wants to have dinner with Kevin … and a ride with her 500ccThe Mallorcan does not shy away from talking about the Texan myth. “Kevin Schwantz is an icon for this brand. Someday I would like to be like him for this brand, ” he says. Mir reveals what he would like to do with the American. “Throughout the year, I had messages and congratulations with him. It is a pleasure to hear these things coming from him. Maybe one day I have dinner with him, I would like to do it one day. Of course I would let him test my bike . It would be an honor. It would be necessary to remove some of the traction control to make it more like his 500cc. I would like to take his 500cc, “he said. The American is for work. There may be a motorcycle swap on a future visit to Austin.
