MotoGP 2023: “If Joan Mir doesn’t go to Honda, he’ll stay home,” but who said that?

The transfer market for the 2023 season and beyond has entered its final stretch and there is still a big bet to be settled with regard to a world champion named Joan Mir. His integration into the Repsol Honda team has been rumored for years, but while the summer break has begun, no contract has yet been signed. Meanwhile, Alex Rins, his current teammate at Suzuki, says he will be at LCR Honda next year. It is as if the formalization of the scheme had been delayed by the holder in 2020 in the category. A tension that is palpable when the issue is submitted to its manager Paco Sánchez …

We will remember it paco sanchez he is the one who irritated pit beirer from home KTM when speaking of the wage conditions of a Remy Gardner who also cares. A sensitive issue but as a manager, the person concerned is doing their job. In addition, he persists and signs in his assessment of the market situation declaring on the YouTube channel TR MotoGP: “ budgets have been cut, and it’s true especially with European brands. This means that there are few factory bikes that pay pre-Covid salaries. There are few places left attractive for drivers, both sportingly and economically. Pilots’ salaries have been falling for years, except Marc Márquez, Fabio Quartararo and Joan Mir, which remained the same. We are reaching alarming levels “.

It almost looks like an ultimatum, which responds to aa Alberto Puig who told Assen again that Repsol Honda had several candidates to consider for 2023.

Nothing in the World Cup scares Joan He insists again paco sanchez. ” He has the champion mentality That said, the fact that Joan Mir it could run out of prospects if Repsol Honda is not exactly the truth. Because there is another option. But for it to be revealed, it would take a resignation …

Here it alludes to this rumor that mentions a possible withdrawal of Franco Morbidelliwhich would leave a free handlebar to the official team Yamaha… ” Lin Jarvis assured me that Franco would continue regardless of his performance comments the manager. Despite this… ” Another thing is that Morbidelli leaves alone. So if we’re home I guess Jarvis will call me ” finished paco sanchez. Tan, Joan Mir crew member Fabio Quartararo ?
