Miller: “It was a rubbish race to be honest”

Miller: “It was a rubbish race to be honest”

The Gran Premio d’Italia TIM proved to be one to forget for Jack Miller as he crashed out of the race after just two laps.

Having started from the ninth row, the CWM LCR Honda rider made a good start at the team’s home track. However, Miller was hampered by front-end problems from the off which ultimately proved his downfall as he slid out at the final corner of the circuit. That meant the Australian failed to finish for the second race in succession, but he remains upbeat about the rest of the season and believes there is plenty of potential to improve. 

Jack Miller: “It was a rubbish race to be honest. I had an awesome start and was going good, but already by the second lap I was having moments with the front. Where Cal unfortunately fell off, I was also close to losing it and Nicky (Hayden) slipped by. I got back past him, but then I had another moment and then it was moment after moment until I couldn’t hold it up anymore. When I got to the final corner the front just went on me and it was beyond recovery. It was really hard here, especially with the front of the bike. I’m still positive, we’re still in good shape. We’ve shown we’ve got the speed, it’s just getting more comfortable on this thing. We seem to be really struggling with the front end, but it’s not only us, there are other guys out there too struggling with it. We’re working on it, it’s only the last couple of races that haven’t been good to us and we need to just focus on getting better and better.”
