Mir apologizes for Miller’s “horny” because “he’s a good uncle”

It is not the first time that Joan Mir and Jack Miller have it stiff this season. In Qatar it was the Australian who brazenly and intentionally touched the Spaniard in the middle of the straight, which inexplicably came out of rositas, without penalty, and in Austin it was Suzuki’s that gave a trip to Ducati’s in the last lap, which later cost him the sanction of the Panel of Commissioners of lose a position, with which the seventh lap returned to Jackass. This was not quite understood by the reigning MotoGP champion at the end of the Texas race, but he did understand “the heat” that his rival had afterwards on the last lap, something that excused him because “he’s a good guy.”

Mir expressively apologized to Miller, clasping his hands, while he was giving him a huge fight, from helmet to helmet and causing the screen to rise so that I could hear you clearly. In addition, he pointed defiantly at his eyes. You could see everything very well from the camera on board from the Australian and, without sound, it seemed like a funny silent movie scene, but with some tension …

When asking Mir about the conflict with Miller, he gave his version: “I like to talk on the track, I don’t like yelling at another driver and threatening another driver. I can understand Jack’s reaction because I consider him to be a good guy and has not been successful with those threats at the end of the race, But we are pilots, we can understand each other, as I said, he is a guy who almost always performs very well in the race, overtakes well, then it is true that we have had some fights because we have coincided and because we fight in the race, and that’s part of the game. What I will not understand is the decision of the Race Direction in this aspect because I have touched him, but I have not thrown anyone; I mean, they have touched me, my overalls are all painted, he has touched me in the first corner, Binder has also passed me in bad ways, and I keep quiet and try to find the best way to come back, and that’s it. , I do not like to criticize and go at the end to yell at another pilot when everything stops, no. I’ll save it for another time, another race, but I honestly don’t like how Jack reacted. I can understand it, and of course the decision is … surely they are not the same commissioners as in Qatar. “

Mir heard him perfectly

For Mir, his pass, even if there was a touch, was an action worthy of the last lap that did not deserve sanction: “If the maneuver was lawful because it was the last lap? Of course, if not, surely I would not have fallen in love with this sport. There is always this factor, of some contact, without going over, without throwing anyone. What’s the point of trying if I know that a position is going to be taken from me? That’s the show, I think, always with respect to the drivers, but you always have to try these things. I am a rider who always likes to overtake, I always like to try it, and the truth is that I did not like that decision they have made. I was able to understand what Jack was saying to me, he was understood perfectly, I listened to him. “

He did not want to reproduce what he said: “It is not necessary to reproduce what he told me, like he was threatening me. But we really are pilots and I can understand the heat perfectly, and as I said, he is a good guy. “
