Miller: “The positives far outweighed the negatives"

Miller: “The positives far outweighed the negatives'

Jack Miller’s Argentina GP would eventually end in the gravel, but not after an incredible start and fight through the field.

The Argentina GP posed a unique challenge for Jack Miller, the Australian in just his second year in the premier class, facing a flag-to-flag race due to tyre issues. Miller showed well in the opening laps of the race, pushing his Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Honda hard and up into the top ten. In the process he overtook a number of riders, including Jorge Lorenzo (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP). As is often the case with young riders, Miller would eventually crash as he kept pushing his Honda RC213V to its limit. While most would be bitterly disappointed by the result, Miller feels he made significant progress with the bike and is ready to get back on track in Austin.

Many had questioned Miller’s decision to skip Moto2™ and advance directly to MotoGP™, but his charge in Argentina was proof that the move was justified. With the improvements found in Argentina, Miller and his team are hoping to use the lessons learned to return to the points in America and again battle for the top ten.

Jack Miller: “I really enjoy the Circuit of the Americas. I won the Moto3 race in 2014 and I have a lot of fun riding there. It should offer better grip than we had in Argentina, so hopefully we can adapt the bike quickly. The result wasn’t what we wanted in Argentina but we found some good improvements with the bike and I was able to make some steps with my riding style better that suited the package more. The positives far outweighed the negatives last weekend. Now I’ve just got to make sure I don’t push as hard!”
