Miller: “I am very happy to finally get some points”

Jack Miller secured his first-ever points in the MotoGP class as he finished 14th in the Red Bull Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin.

Starting from 19th on the grid, the Australian made a superb start and climbed as high as 11th at one point during the race.

However, he was later involved in a collision that would ultimately cost him a couple of places in the final standings. Miller – who came home under a quarter of a second behind former MotoGP world champion Nicky Hayden – declared himself pleased with the result and insisted he had gathered crucial experience for the season ahead.

Jack Miller:
“I was really happy with the race, I learnt a lot fighting with the guys like Nicky (Hayden) and the rest of the group. I must improve the management of my tyres over the first few laps. I need to learn not to be so aggressive on the front tyre, and especially the rear, so that I have more possibilities at the end of the race. Overall, I am very happy to finish the race and finally get some points. But now we have to make the next step and look to try and finish inside the top ten.”
