Miguel Oliveira’s victory closed 2020 MotoGP season

The Portuguese GP which took place last week (22/11) marked the end of the 2020 MotoGP campaign. The race which took place at the Algarve Circuit, Portimao, Portugal was won by Red Bull KTM Tech3 rider, Miguel Oliveira.

Miguel Oliveira’s victory is not surprising, considering that he is also the home rider. But this victory feels special because it was a farewell gift for the Red Bull KTM Tech3 team.

For information, starting from the next 2021 season, a 25-year-old racer will join the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team to replace Pol Espargaro who decided to leave the Repsol Honda Team.

Miguel Oliveira himself thanked the Red Bull KTM Tech3 Team.

“I also thank Tech 3, because this is our last race together. This is goodbye, but this is also a good day for Tech 3 and KTM.” He said after the race at Portimao.

Returning to the results of the last race of the 2020 season, Pramac Racing Team Rider Jack Miller finished second fastest, followed by the runner up in the final standings, Franco Morbidelli.

The world champion for the 2020 season, Joan Mir, failed to reach the finish line due to a motorbike problem. However, these results do not necessarily change Rider Suzuki Elctar’s position at the top of the standings.
