Spanish racer Joan Mir will continue with the Suzuki Ecstar MotoGP team for a further two years.
Suzuki Racing Company announced that Joan Mir will continue to ride alongside teammate Alex Rins through 2021 and 2022.
Mir completed the 2019 MotoGP season in seventh place, securing nine top-10 finishes and taking his best result at the Australian Grand Prix with a fifth-place finish.
“I’m extremely happy to sign with Suzuki for another two years – renewing is the best thing that could happen and it’s a dream come true again,” he said.
“It’s really important for me to continue because now I have more time to learn and more time to show my potential.
“Two years can go by quickly, but I am ready to arrive at a higher level, and we are working every day to make that happen. I am also so pleased on a personal level because I have a really good team and crew around me. I really want to thank everyone at Suzuki for their confidence in me, and let’s see if I can get the results that we’re capable of.”
