One of the most tense moments of the Doha GP MotoGP race has had as protagonists Jack Miller and Joan Mir In the absence of 10 laps to go and that could have had dire consequences due to the out-of-tone of the Australian who has lost all reason.
At turn 10. Mir has made a maneuver quite close to the limit to pass him and they have touched. The Spaniard has recognized his mistake and has taken his leg out, a universal gesture to apologize to the rival. But the Australian has taken it very badly and has deliberately taken off the track Mir on the straight with a touch to 195 km / h and after that he has put himself in parallel with him and has begun to vehemently rebuke him.
Even though Race direction has analyzed the incident during the test has not seen punishable action. Even so Suzuki has gone to appeal this decision to wash his hands.
This is how Joan Mir explained it: “I have changed his line to the limit a bit, it is true and I have apologized by sticking my leg out and apparently he has gotten angry, he must not like to see that he is not performing as expected of him and in the last corner I have sneaked a a little and when I came back I have gone sticking to the left, what we all do, another one has happened to me with Aleix who has sneaked in, he has returned to the left I have seen him and I have approached him without touching him and I have seen this situation that was coming accelerating to touch me and it has to be judged, it cannot be repeated, it has been very dangerous on the straight with drivers behind passing the limits ”.
This is how Jack Miller explained it: “He hit me three times in the middle of the curve. The Suzuki turns well but it hit me hard, I was tired of so much touch. It is nothing personal, I understand that the Suzuki turns well and they can park wherever they want, but three touches are a lot: in the second corner at the beginning of the race, then in the six and in the ten. I was tired of so much touch ”.
“We all saw what happened, and nothing else. If they had taken me a black flag they would have been wrong. I know what happened: he went long and wanted to come back, but nobody is too concerned with what happens to others ”.
