They say diamonds are made under pressure and what a way to be crowned in Valencia than with a MotoGP crown and the bells and whistles that go with the honour! The Grand Prix was exhilarating and ended with Joan Mir crowed as MotoGP World Champion, Franco Morbidelli and Jack Miller pushing each other until the line for the victory and others crashing out with sadness, that in particular, Fabio Quartararo. It was a dominant third win for Morbidelli who was comfortable, feeling like himself and racing with a relaxed mindset, a real credit to his racing style. With the Championship lost, Quartararo will have to analyse his mistakes, look towards 2021 with a new bike as he arrives into a factory team and be prepared to work even harder because Team Suzuki Ecstar are in for the long haul! When you look at the races in 2020, you can see why Mir became the Champion:

1. He was consistent.

2. He was confident in the team’s ability to perform.

3. He was always humble.

4. He fought hard and continued to stay focused.

5. He utilised the Suzuki like never before to excel and hit targets.

6. He never complained about the lack of performance and instead found ways to improve.

7. He listened to his crew, bosses and worked collectively to achieve a common goal.

8. He never stopped pushing even when the pressure was mounting at this race event.

9. Overall, Mir is more than deserving of the honour and with a win to his name!
