Honda to switch Rins and Mir?

Listener questions dominate this week’s MotoGP podcast featuring Keith Huewen, including several on the subject of COTA winner Alex Rins and Honda.


Rins, riding for the satellite LCR team, celebrated Honda’s first MotoGP win since Marc Marquez in 2021 and now holds third in the world championship.


But former Suzuki team-mate Mir has had less early success on the RCV, with a best finish of eleventh for 19th in the world championship, after missing one race due to injury.


With both riders on factory HRC contracts, podcast host Harry Benjamin raised recent speculation that Honda should think about trying to swap Rins and Mir. Contractually, it’s a non-starter, but even if it was possible, would Repsol even be the right move for Rins?
