HRC confirm the signing of Joan Mir on a two-year contract

The 2020 MotoGP™ World Champion will become Marc Marquez's Repsol Honda teammate in 2023 and 2024

Ahead of the Gran Premio Gryfyn di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini, Honda Racing Corporation have confirmed that Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) will join the Repsol Honda Team ranks in 2023 on a two-year contract.

The 2020 MotoGP™ World Champion will become Marc Marquez’s new teammate next season and in 2024, and joins current teammate Alex Rins in moving across from Suzuki to Honda after the 2022 campaign draws to a close.

Mir became a two-time World Champion in 2020 when he backed up his Moto3™ title triumph in 2017 with a premier class crown, with the 24-year-old Spaniard boasting a fantastic record of 12 Grand Prix wins and 33 podiums to date. 

Joan Mir: "I'm very excited to officially announce that I will join the Repsol Honda Team next year. Thanks to HRC for trusting me and giving me the opportunity to defend these historic colours, which are full of history and world titles. We will take advantage of all my experience accumulated over the years in MotoGP with Suzuki to contribute as much as possible to the project and to fight together to become world champions again.

“Now it's time to continue focused on my recovery to return to the circuits as soon as possible and have a great end of the season with Team Suzuki Ecstar.”
