Jack Miller (EG 0,0 Marc VDS) stole many of the headlines on Saturday at the French GP, as the Queenslander had a spectacular crash in FP4 that left him a little bruised ahead of the race. Still, Miller took another impressive top ten in P8 despite being a little bruised, and then headed home to recover in time for Mugello.
Double-checked and given the all clear, Miller is now ready to race again at the spectacular Autodromo del Mugello. Having tested himself out with cycling and supermotard ahead of the event, the Aussie thinks another top ten is another good target for the coming weekend.
Jack Miller: "As soon as I got home from Le Mans I had a scan on the hand and the knee just to make sure there was nothing broken and since then I've been working with the physiotherapist to reduce the swelling in both. I've been doing a lot of cycling this week, but I also managed to get out on the supermotard and had no problems with the hand or the knee, so it's looking good for the weekend ahead. Mugello is one of those special circuits on the calendar and like a lot of other riders I really enjoy racing there. With the long straights it's a bit of a horsepower track, but it's also one that demands a lot of confidence in the front, and we've made big steps in this area since the start of the season. This means we should be able to make up in the corners and in the fast changes of direction what we lose down the straights, so I'm confident another top ten finish is a realistic goal for us this weekend."
