Motorsport: Mir new world champion MotoGP
15.06 hours: The Spaniard Joan Mir is the new world champion in the MotoGP. The 23-year-old driver of Suzuki finished seventh in the Grand Prix of Valencia and that ranking was sufficient to gain an unbridgeable edge over the competition in the championship in the penultimate race of the year.
The Italian Franco Morbidelli, who was still contender of the title, did what he had to do. The driver of Yamaha won the race after a spectacular duel with Australian Jack Miller, but Mir scored enough points in his rankings to secure the title. He is the successor to Marc Marquez, the six-time world champion who broke his right arm at the beginning of the season and stopped coming into action.
