Miller: “I’m looking forward to coming back next year'

Jack Miller concludes his rookie MotoGP™ World Championship campaign with a 21st place finish in Valencia.

Making the move from the Moto3™ World Championship directly to the premier class was never going to be easy, but Jack Miller was able to achieve respectable results during a tough year. With 18 crashes during his rookie season, it could have gone smoother for the Australian but he was able to finish as the top Open Honda rider and produced several stunning rides. Miller holds his 15th place in Phillip Island as his best race of the season, even better than his first Open class victory in Argentina. His relationship with the LCR Honda team ends with a 21st place finish at the Gran Premio Motul de la Comunitat Valenciana.

For 2016 Miller moves to the Marc VDS team and steps to a satellite Honda, finishing in the top ten of each race is a clear aim for both the Australian and the team. Some have doubted Miller’s ability in 2015 and his second year in the MotoGP™ class will be a make or break year for the 20 year old.

Jack Miller: “First of all I’d like to thank the LCR Honda team for taking this risk and putting me in this year. It’s been an awesome year, I’ve enjoyed it a lot. We’ve had some ups and downs and didn’t quite achieve the goal of a top-10 finish that we wanted, but we showed some really strong performances during the season and I’m looking forward to coming back to the MotoGP class next year.

“I think we improved a lot during the course of the year – especially compared to when we tested here at the start of the year, we’ve improved by nearly two seconds and that’s not easy to do. I think Phillip Island would have to be our best race of the season and now I’m looking forward to improving again next year.”
