The Mallorcan already had an affinity with Australia after winning the 2017 Moto3 race – and the world title – at the Island, and he shone in the third-last race of his rookie MotoGP campaign, finishing a season-best fifth. We know what happened next …
Mir hasn't been to Australia since, but his return will be as a MotoGP world champion, Suzuki's kingpin as it fights the might of five other manufacturers with just two riders, and one of the best operators in the business. Every Australian Grand Prix from 2017-19 produced (or matched) Mir's best result of the season, so hopes will be high come October.
