Joan Mir could race another 8-10 years in MotoGP™ – realistic, given he’s only 26 – and would never have a season that could come close to the physical battering and mental misery he endured in 2023, a year so dispiriting that he admitted to contemplating retirement.

Last year’s Honda didn’t discriminate – Marc Marquez, Alex Rins and Mir all broke bones and missed races after being spat off it – but the Spaniard seemingly spent the entire campaign either sidelined or riding under duress. More crashes in one year than the rest of his MotoGP™ career combined led to more race starts (30) than points (26), a statistical anomaly that would have broken lesser characters.

Mir is much, much better than his Honda tenure so far, and the consistency that underpinned his assured 2020 championship run still lurks within. Continuity – and injury luck – are the first non-negotiables of a long, but achievable, rebirth.
