The hurdles threatening Mir’s early MotoGP coronation
By:

Heading into MotoGP's penultimate round at Valencia, Joan Mir could theoretically wrap up the top-flight crown to complete a stunning season. But a crash in practice put a damper on his weekend - and his title rivals cannot be discounted yet…

The permutations are numerous, but the simplest maths to follow is this: if Mir finishes on the podium, regardless of where any Alex Rins, Fabio Quartararo (who are joint-second), Maverick Vinales, Franco Morbidelli or Andrea Dovizioso end up, he will end a two-decade wait for a Suzuki.
