His World Championship debut happened on Aussie soil one year earlier, when he was drafted into the Leopard squad to deputise for the injured Hiroki Ono, though any hopes of a good result were lost when the then 18-year-old crashed when Scottish rider John McPhee high-sided in front of him.
The results would come, however, thick and fast. He finished fifth overall in his maiden season thanks to a handful of podiums as well as a race win, earning the Spanish talent Rookie of the Year status.
A quick learner, Mir won the Moto3™ title 12 months later, converting his talent into level-headed consistency with no less than 13 podiums from 18 attempts. He celebrated the win on 10 occasions in that stellar season, a performance which earned him a berth in the Moto2™ Championship for the 2018 season.
He adapted well to the 600cc machinery and scored 11 top-10 finishes, including four podiums, from 19 starts to finish an impressive sixth overall.
Unsurprisingly, the Spanish rider was signed by the factory Suzuki squad for 2019, where he showed early flashes of brilliance as he adapted to the 270-horsepower machinery. In his rookie season, the future MotoGP™ star scored 10 top-10 finishes.
