Suzuki rider Joan Mir will be keen to maintain his lead and good form at the Teruel Grand Prix. 
The Spanish star remains one of the most consistent riders this season having secured five podium finishes. 
However, Mir is yet to win a race in the current campaign and he will be determined to record a win in Alcañiz.

The latest race in the 2020 season was the Aragon Grand Prix which was won by Mir's teammate Alex Rins. 
Honda rider Alex Marquez and Mir finished second, and third respectively in an enthralling race. 

Mir is now sitting at the top of the riders' standings and he is followed by Yamaha duo of Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Vinales respectively. 
The 23-year-old is only six points above Quartararo heading into this weekend's Teruel Grand Prix.

Mir is happy to have moved to the top of the riders' standings and he explained that he is taking it one race at a time.
“It was really positive because we took important championship points, I am disappointed and expected more in the last part of the race," Mir said.
"I was saving a lot my tyre and being really smooth on the first laps and middle of the race. I think that we did not manage the tyres well which is a problem.” 
“I will not change the way I approach races, I will continue going race-by-race trying to score as many points as possible and win the race. In the last race [of the season], we will look at the championship and see where we are.”
Yamaha are sitting at the top of the Manufacturers' Championship standings with 183 points. 
Ducati and Suzuki are placed second and third with 160 and 143 points respectively on the standings.
