Alex Rins puts disappointment from his crashes in Austria and Le Mans firmly behind him with a third career MotoGP victory for Suzuki in Aragon

Alex Rins showed some relief as he became the eighth winner of the 2020 MotoGP World Championship season with a victory in the MotoGP Aragon race after being criticized for being too reckless in crashes while racing ahead in Austria and France

Starting from ninth, with more eyes on his sixth-placed teammate Joan Mir, it was Rins who nevertheless made the headlines on Sunday as he took the lead early before showing a impeccable defensive driving to hold on Alex Marquez at the end

His third career MotoGP victory, while his first two wins in COTA and Silverstone came with late duels coming from behind, this time Rins was in charge for most of the race

Inspired by a great start – lining up the first corner straight on the outside as rivals jostled and lost momentum inside him – Rins immediately jumped from ninth to fourth, before taking on the Yamahas one by one. as they retreated

Speaking of the lead on lap seven, Rins held his own for much of the race before remaining calm in the face of Marquez’s late attack

“We had a very good race, this is my first victory leading the race [leading for a long time], the last two wins were against Valentino [Rossi, COTA] and Marc [Marquez, Silverstone ] but this one was harder because it’s easy to make a mistake when leading but tried to stay calm and felt I was riding pretty well

“At the pit, I could see Joan and Alex arrive very quickly but I tried to keep my calm, tried to save the tires for the end of the race because running with the soft rear, it doesn’t is not easy This first position for me and Suzuki, we do a very good job with the podiums and this victory shows how they have worked this season Of course they really want this victory

“Not many people expected me to win but I was calm, I studied the line at the start and we had a good start and suddenly I was fourth to fight with Yamahas When I was behind them I could see they were suffering a bit to be faster I was behind Maverick and he demonstrated this weekend that he has a faster pace than everyone else but now we’re going to go I found it it’s easy behind him so I decided to overtake him, do my race and open a gap “

Rins’ victory is just the latest twist in an extraordinary 2020 MotoGP season, a season that now sees his Suzuki teammate Joan Mir at the top of the standings with four rounds to go, even though he’s not part of the of these eight riders to have dominated the podium

It might have been a different story in the standings if Rins hadn’t been surprised with an energy-draining shoulder injury in the first round, as he threw up shots for the victory in Austria and Le Mans after falling from strong positions Without these he could have been with Mir in the standings, so Rins admits there is some relief in changing the subject of his season.

“We struggled to get this first position I had the potential in a lot of races but in the end they never came, this first position for a mistake or a crash Finally he arrived and I am so happy, because it was not easy

“A lot of people tell me ‘you have to be calmer’ because I had two crashes trying to pass Austria for the lead and Le Mans in the wet, but I knew I had that potential and I have the bike to do it “
