After the European MotoGP series was held at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, Sunday (11/8/2020) evening WIB. Joan Mir took the main podium.
He was able to secure his position as the leading rider after overtaking his partner, Alex Rins, on lap 17, at Turn 8 to be precise.
Thanks to this victory, Joan Mir won the top podium for the first time MotoGP 2020 scrolling.
He also became the 10th racer to have his feet on the main podium.
In addition, Joan Mir’s success in winning the first position made him firmly at the top of the 2020 MotoGP standings.
The 23-year-old racer is comfortable at the top of the 2020 MotoGP standings with 162 points.
He was 27 points ahead of Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT) and his partner, Alex Rins, who collected 125 points.
This means that he only needs one more main podium if he wants to ensure the 2020 MotoGP world champion.
Because, if you reach the main podium in the next series, MotoGP Valencia, the points cannot be overtaken by its competitors in the closing series.
Yes, MotoGP 2020 only has two more series left, namely the Valencia MotoGP and the Portimao MotoGP.
If Joan Mir managed to reach the main podium at the Valencia MotoGP, he would be sure to be the world champion.
