Mir: 2020 World Champion in Valencia IF…

It’s match point to the Suzuki star at the penultimate round of the season, but what needs to happen for Mir to lift the MotoGP™ title?

After securing his long-awaited maiden MotoGP™ victory at the Gran Premio de Europa last time out, Team Suzuki Ecstar’s Joan Mir now has his first match point of 2020 after extending his title lead to 37 points with just two races to go. This means the Spaniard can lift the premier class crown at the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana if the following results occur:

  • He is on the podium, no matter where his rivals finish

  • He is 4th, 5th or 6th and Fabio Quartararo or Alex Rins don’t win

  • He is 7th and Quartararo, Rins or Maverick Viñales don’t win

  • He is 8th, 9th or 10th and Viñales doesn’t win, plus Quartararo and Rins don’t finish better than 3rd

  • He is 11th and Viñales, Franco Morbidelli or Andrea Dovizioso don’t win, and Quartararo and Rins don’t finish better than 3rd

  • He is 12th, 13th or 14th and Morbidelli or Dovizioso don’t win, Viñales doesn’t finish better than 3rd, and Quartararo and Rins don’t finish on the podium

  • He is 15th and Morbidelli or Dovizioso don’t win, Viñales doesn’t finish better than 3rd and Quartararo and Rins don’t finish better 5th

  • He fails to score any points and Morbidelli and Dovizioso don’t finish better than 3rd, Viñales doesn’t finish on the podium, Quartararo and Rins don’t finish better than 5th.

 

In addition, Suzuki head to the Valencia GP with a seven-point lead over Ducati in the MotoGP™ Constructor World Championship and could clinch the title at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo for the first time in the premier class since 1982, if the following happens: the first Suzuki rider across the line scores 18 points more than the first Ducati rider, one point more than the first Yamaha rider and doesn’t concede more than three points to the first KTM rider.
