MDP Live - Suzuki Ecstar rider, Joan Mir, confirmed that his condition is now fine after experiencing food poisoning during a pre-season test at the Mandalika Circuit last week.
Joan Mir's food poisoning was certainly very detrimental to himself and Suzuki. The reason is, the 24-year-old man couldn't help his partner, Alex Rins, to tinker with the GSX-RR motorcycle on the last day of the second 2022 MotoGP pre-season test at the Mandalika Circuit on Sunday (13/2).
Before the third day's session began, Mir was known to have been rushed to a nearby clinic for treatment. At that time, the doctor who handled him suspected that the 2020 MotoGP champion had food poisoning.
As a result, he was forced to miss the third day of the pre-season test at Mandalika. Of course, this is very unfortunate considering its performance in the last two days of testing there is very promising.
On the first day, Joan Mir was in eighth place with 0.778 seconds adrift of the rider in first place, Pol Espargaro. Then on the second day, he managed to improve his time record by posting a time of 1 minute 31.586 seconds and was ranked fifth.
Despite his achievements, currently Mir has revealed his current condition. The Spanish rider admitted that he had improved and expressed his gratitude to all those who had given him support.
“Feeling much better. Thank you for all your messages and support. See you soon," wrote Mir in his insta story on his Instagram social media account.
On the other hand, Mir was also very satisfied with Suzuki's performance during the tests at the Sepang Circuit and the Mandalika Circuit. He also said that he was ready to start the 2022 MotoGP competition which will soon open at the Losail Circuit.
"Unfortunately I couldn't perform today due to some digestive issues. But we have done a very good job over the past few days at the Sepang and Mandalika tests, and we are ready for the Qatar MotoGP," wrote the rider in his post.
