Joan Mir says he can’t get close to Fabio Quartararo so he’s the perfect heir to the MotoGP title

Joan Mir says Fabio Quartararo is the perfect heir to that MotoGP crown … because he can’t get to him on the track.

The young Quartararo is expected to win his first world title at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix on Sunday in Misano.

Such is Quartararo’s dominance this season, Mir’s title defense was as good as over before it even started – because he was too fast to compete with him.

“Most riders and veterans have achieved whatever they want. The young riders are starting to take their places.”

Despite the advent of the new generation, an eye will remain on Marquez for the next season as he tries to recover from the upper body injuries that left him out of the 2020 season.

Many expected the six-time premier league champions to be at their best again this season, but Mir insists the country’s situation is different now.
