Joan Mir has 'full commitment' with Honda for 2024

Gold and Goose

Joan Mir claims that he will be riding for Repsol Honda next season despite rumours that the 2020 MotoGP world champion would leave after only one season.

Joan Mir has been a hot topic of conversation this year, and not because he has been putting in stellar results on track. In reality it has been because of how poor he has been performing throughout the 2023 season.

At the start of the season Mir made the switch from departing Suzuki to the prestigious Repsol Honda squad. This move made many people believe Mir would be able to fight for podiums and wins. However, the Spaniard has only scored points on one occasion this season.


There have been rumours that the 25-year-old would leave Honda at the end of the 2023 season. But the 2020 MotoGP world champion put these rumours to bed in an interview recently with Crash.net.

“No, we didn't speak with Yamaha because we have a contact for next year,” Mir told Crash.net.

"I’m honestly not looking at any (other) place. I have full (commitment) with Honda as they have with me and I will try to do my best until the contract finishes and then we will decide. But I still believe that this can work.

“What I want is to start to enjoy a bit. This is the first thing, finish races, get good information and wait (until) some improvement on the bike appears. And then with full health and everything, be able to say ‘OK this is working’ and try to be where I want.

"But for me it doesn’t make sense to start to crash like I did in the past, (just) to finish outside the top ten. For me what probably makes more sense, which at the beginning I was not doing, is trying to have a lower expectation for myself."
