Miller: “I can't wait to get into it now!"

Solid third and final day at Losail for the Aussie

2016 Dutch GP winner Jack Miller (Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) finished the third day of the #QatarTest in a solid P16 after some good showings throughout the preseason, putting in a best lap of 1:55.455 on Day 3 to secure P16 both in the session and overall.

The main focus for Miller on the third day of the test was to complete a full race simulation using the latest spec Honda engine, and the Queenslander put together a 21 lap run on Day 3. The Aussie then switched his attention to a fast lap on the softest of the tyre options provided by Michelin – and feels he has a little more in his pocket when the grid return to Qatar to race.

Jack Miller, P16: "It's been another good day here in Qatar, I felt really comfortable on the bike and we got a lot of work done. I'm pretty happy with my consistency over the long run and the pace was strong, so when we return for the race we just need to continue working in the same direction. It was nice to get the lap time in at the end; it wasn't quite as fast as I'd have liked it to have been, we just didn't put it all together, but it means I have something up my sleeve for when we come back here in nine days time to race. I can't wait to get into it now!"
