Miller: “Losail is going to be a little bit harder"

Miller: “Losail is going to be a little bit harder'

Jack Miller heads to Qatar for only his second run on track in 2016, excited for bike time but cautious of his injury.

The final MotoGP™ pre-season test will take place at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar, riders and teams again looking to make the most of three days on track. This will be Jack Miller’s second test of 2016, the Australian forced to miss Sepang due to a training injury. Despite the mixed weather in Phillip Island, he was able to make steady progress as the left hand nature of the track took pressure away from his injury. Miller ended the three days in Australia 15th and within 0.9s of the fastest rider.

 With Qatar having many more right hand corners, Miller  heads to Qatar with a more tentative approach. As the first race of the year will also be in Qatar, this will give Miller and Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS a preview as to what they can expect in terms of how the injury may alter Miller’s results.

Aside from assessing his still healing right leg, the test will be important for Miller to further understand the Honda RC213V he will campaign 2016 on. Although he has already had a year in the premier class, the 2016 bike is a much different beast to his 2015 Open Honda, which struggled for engine performance.

Jack Miller: “I’m really excited for Qatar. It will be my first opportunity to test the full package for the upcoming season and I’m looking forward to getting to work on that with my crew. With so many right turns compared to Phillip Island, the Losail track is going to be a little bit harder on my injury, but I’ve been working hard with my physiotherapist here in Australia the past few weeks, so I’m feeling positive.”
