Suzuki brings optimism and hope into Barcelona

Joan Mir

Team Suzuki Ecstar come into the Catalan Grand Prix following a disheartening race weekend in Italy just days ago where both riders were unable to reach the chequered flag. However, with Alex Rins and Joan Mir familiar with the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya and keen to get back to form, the squad are hopeful of success. 

Rins was born in Barcelona, and he holds a great love for its circuit. Over the years he’s had several podiums and Top 5 finishes here, including third on his last visit in 2020. He missed the GP last year due to a wrist injury, so he feels more determined than ever to get back on track. 

Similarly, although hailing from Mallorca, Mir spent much of his formative years racing in Barcelona and he’s also very familiar with the track. On his MotoGP debut here he scored a very impressive sixth place, which he followed up with a podium one year later and a fourth place in 2021.
