Joan Mir remains focused on the tasks of trying to find the correct solutions to improve the overall speed of the bike because at the moment in that chapter they are halfway down the table against the Ducati howitzers.
DAY FOR TESTS
“Today I tested the new engine for 2022, which has interesting things and we have focused on testing all the parts that Suzuki has brought for this test. To understand what works and what doesn’t. I believe that tomorrow we will be able to start working more on performance for the race and take the right steps to be competitive for the GP ”
THE NEW ENGINE FOR 2022
“I saw that the engine was a bit more powerful on the straight, although I have not yet passed a Ducati. It seems to work well and that’s a good thing because it looks like the foundation is good. The character remains the same, so we are on the right track. Hopefully after these tests we have done they will give it another twist and can do it even faster.
IF I COULD IF I WOULD ASSEMBLE IT NOW
“He surely has more potential, but I don’t know if it would give time to adjust for the race. Besides, the Japanese do not like to do things so hastily. Yes, I can tell you that it has more potential and that can be seen by putting it on track. The speed is a little higher and in everything else it is similar to what we already have. The base is good, but I don’t think this engine will be the one we will bring in 2022, but they will continue to improve it “
THE NEW SWINGARM
“It is a piece that we are still pending to confirm, we also test electronic things that are working well. What we are trying to improve is the overall speed of the bike. This will make everything a little better and times will go down. That is the direction in which we are working ”
DO NOT WORK IN ONE LAP
“We are not focusing on improving one lap, but on improving it in general. Maybe in these two days we will focus more on making it work better on one lap, because at race pace we are not bad at all. We are not the best, but we are in the top 3- top 5 ”
THE RETURN OF MARC MARQUEZ
“I suppose Marc and his physios see the possibility of being able to be well, although he has not yet tested any motorcycle that we know of. And based on how you are, you will decide to come or prepare for the next race. I do not know. Nothing changes me. We have the package we have and we are focused on improving.
