But the accolades go beyond the specialized sporting press. The general Spanish media also afford cover space to Mir on Monday. “Mir is crowned with the World Cup” is the headline chosen by El Periódico, which also points out that Hamilton draws level with Michael Schumacher in F1 titles. El País also focus on the fact that he has just come through his rookie year, saying that he is “Champion in his second season”. El Mundo, for its part, focuses on Mir becoming the “fourth Spanish champion”, following in the footsteps of Àlex Crivillé, Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Márquez.
