MotoGP: What does Joan Mir need to be crowned champion this weekend?

Joan Mir has his first chance this weekend at being crowned the 2020 MotoGP champion.

Joan Mir has had a stunning 2020 season, he was an unexpected MotoGP title contender, sat in P14 overall after the first three races of the season, yet has proven was form, consistency and unbelievable mental strength can do, in 2020 he has not cracked under the pressure of leading the championship, instead, he has said it is just his job and there is no pressure, treating each weekend as a separate entity, not thinking of the championship and just going race to race.

He has scored 7 x MotoGP podiums this season and was able to win his first race at the European Grand Prix to extend his championship lead to a monumental 37 points with just 2 races left, meaning that if he leaves the Valencian Grand Prix this weekend with a championship lead more than 25 points, he will be world champion.

This huge advantage means that he does not have to put anywhere near as much work in as the riders around him to take the championship, Mir can DNF this weekend and still win the championship, that is how calm he is able to be entering this weekend, here is how he can win the title:

– If Mir is on the podium he will be crowned champion, no matter where anyone else finishes

– If Mir finishes in P4, P5 or P6 and Fabio Quartararo or Alex Rins don’t win, he is champion

– If Mir finishes in P7 and Quartararo, Rins or Maverick Viñales don’t win, he is champion

– If Mir finishes in P8, P9 or P10 and Viñales doesn’t win, plus Quartararo and Rins don’t finish better than P3, he is champion

– If Mir finishes in P11 and Viñales, Franco Morbidelli or Andrea Dovizioso don’t win, and Quartararo and Rins don’t finish better than P3, he is champion

– If Mir finishes in P12, P13 or P14 and Morbidelli or Dovizioso don’t win, Viñales doesn’t finish better than P3, and Quartararo and Rins don’t finish on the podium, he is champion

– If Mir finishes in P15 and Morbidelli or Dovizioso don’t win, Viñales doesn’t finish better than P3 and Quartararo and Rins don’t finish better 5th, he is champion

– If Mir fails to score any points and Morbidelli and Dovizioso don’t finish better than P3, Viñales doesn’t finish on the podium, Quartararo and Rins don’t finish better than 5th, he is champion
