 Mick Doohan praises: © Motorsport Images Joan Mir is eight points behind Fabio Quartararo Will Joan Mir become the first Suzuki World Champion in the modern MotoGP era? In the past few weeks, the Spaniard has had an unparalleled run of success. Mir hasn't won a race yet, but with four podiums in the past five races, he has become a title contender. Mirs is eight points behind Fabio Quartararo. The Frenchman has already won three races. The consistently better results, however, had me.

Instead of Andrea Dovizioso Mick Doohan would think about retiring or switching to the Superbike World Championship - test rider a "lonely" job

Andrea Dovizioso will be in the coming year expected to be a MotoGP test rider. The talks with Yamaha are said to be well advanced. It has not yet been decided whether there will also be wildcard starts. In parallel to tests, the Italian also wants to have the opportunity to drive motocross races.

The coming weeks will show whether there will be an agreement between Dovizioso and Yamaha and what the key points are exactly. Dani Pedrosa at KTM and Sylvain Guintoli at Suzuki have shown that an experienced man can advance a project.

"Dovizioso still has a lot to offer," says MotoGP legend Mick Doohan with conviction. "He has a lot of experience. He can race and win and potentially the world championship. I'm not close enough, but it would be strange if he couldn't find a good team."

"It will be difficult for him if he doesn't find a good team. If it were me, I'd say you'd better quit or switch to the Superbike World Championship," said the Australian at 'MotoGP.com' . "He would certainly be competitive there."

Like Pedrosa: Dovizioso would be a valuable test driver for a team.

Dovizioso has always categorically ruled out a move to the Superbike World Championship. In mid-October, the three-time vice world champion spoke openly for the first time that could imagine the role of test driver .

Five Questions for Mick Mulvaney

  Five Questions for Mick Mulvaney "In hindsight. could we have done things differently? Sure. But the president doesn’t have the benefit of working with hindsight. Only his critics do."No. Obama had four chiefs in his first term, and one in his second. Being chief in a first term is much, much more pressing, as the president is not only running the country but is running for reelection. My guess is that things look a little different in the second term. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone already in the White House or someone close to the president took the job for the whole four years.

In the current MotoGP, fast test riders with a lot of experience are in demand. "In my day the test drivers were several seconds slower," Doohan recalls the 1990s. "In reality we tested."

"They did test parts, but in the end we had to confirm that or take a different direction . As a driver, however, you want to race. In test drives, the risk is just as great if you can get within a few tenths of a second of the times. "

"It's also a very lonely experience because you do your laps on your own," says Doohan. "If such a job were available for him, he could enjoy it and at the same time lead a different life, then it could be a win-win situation for both sides."

"You have seen that Pedrosa has brought progress for KTM. In Dani you have found someone who can lead the project in the right direction. It could be similar with Dovizioso. Someone like Dovizioso can be an advantage for a team. "

Mick Mulvaney told a think tank in Ireland that "high-energy" Trump will lead the race to be the Republican candidate in 2024. "Now, I think folks are starting to realise that if Donald Trump loses, he might be the guy, and I'm telling you absolutely," Mulvaney said."I would absolutely expect the president to stay involved in politics and would absolutely put him on a shortlist of people who are likely to run in 2024. He doesn't like losing."He said that Trump was "high-energy" despite his age and might even run in 2028, at which point he'd be 82 years-of-age.
