Alex Rins has won races in every category, and often won them in style; his 2022 Australian Grand Prix win was remarkable, topped only by his Valencia triumph two races later to end Suzuki’s time in MotoGP™ with a barely-believable bouquet. But Austin 2023? That’s another level of extraordinary entirely.

Rins winning his third race for Honda at the Circuit of the Americas was the outlier of all outliers, given what happened to him and his machinery afterwards. The Spaniard missed the majority of the season after breaking his leg in Italy, and as his Honda stablemates spent half the year finishing nowhere and the other half crashing, Rins signed with Yamaha to partner Fabio Quartararo.

The YZR-M1 – an inline-4 like the Suzuki he relished – will suit the rapid Rins down to the ground, and gives the Japanese factory a rider line-up that might just be the best in MotoGP™.
