Miller: “I just feel confident and comfortable"

EG 0,0 Marc VDS rider stuns as second quickest on Day 1 in Jerez

Jack Miller (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) put in a stunning performance on Day 1 of the #SpanishGP, as the Assen 2016 winner took second on the timesheets as the only man in the 1:39 bracket behind Friday’s fastest Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team).

Miller: "Today was really solid"

Miller was also top Independent Team rider on Friday ahead of P3 man Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda), and will be looking to secure direct entry to Q2 in the last practice session counting towards automatic graduation – FP3 on Saturday morning.

Jack Miller, P2: “I felt really comfortable on the bike in the wet this morning and was happy to be battling inside the top three. The start of this afternoon’s session was a bit tricky because there were still quite a few damp patches around. But at the end it was completely dry and I was happy with my lap time. I did a 1’39.964 and that’s my best lap here at Jerez. I did that time alone as well and I just feel confident and comfortable with how the bike is behaving around this track. I’ve got some great feeling from the front end and I can put the bike where I want to without being too close to the limit. It’s a brilliant way to start the weekend and hopefully we can build on this for a strong result on Sunday.”
