Miller: “Conditions were atrocious today”

Assen GP winner takes P3 on a rained-off Day 1 at home

Australian Jack Miller (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) had a good day on the timesheets as action opened at Phillip Island as he ended FP1 and the day in P3, but conditions were bad enough to red flash FP2 and cancel the reminder of the session. With conditions too dangerous to ride in, the Aussie laments not being able to put on a good show for the home fans – and hopes the weather is better for them tomorrow, despite having confidence in himself in the wet.

Jack Miller (P3): “I’ve got to say the conditions were atrocious today, so firstly I want to say thanks to the Australian fans who still came out and supported me. We got out on track this morning and it wasn’t too bad in terms of learning something for the rain set-up, but this afternoon it was far too wet and dangerous. It’s a shame we couldn’t put on a show this afternoon but it was the correct decision to cancel the session because we simply can’t ride in those conditions. Hopefully for everybody’s sake the weather is better tomorrow and if practice and qualifying is wet then I’m confident I can be strong and do a good job. I felt I had good speed in the wet this morning and I don’t think missing two dry sessions will hurt us too much if it is dry tomorrow.”

Miller: "This could benefit us"
