Australia’s Jack Miller remains upbeat despite suffering his first DNF on a Ducati at the Italian GP on Sunday.
Miller, who started from P11, crashed out on the second lap, ending his run of eight consecutive top-10 finishes.
“I’m very disappointed,” said the Alma Pramac Racing rider.
“The feeling was always very positive throughout the weekend and I think we made the right choice with the medium rear tyre.
“I think I could have competed well, but that didn’t happen this time. I have learnt a lesson. It will be different in Barcelona.”
Jorge Lorenzo won the race, his first victory on a Ducati, with Andrea Dovizioso and Valentino Rossi completing the podium.
The result sees Miller drop to ninth place in the MotoGP™ standings with 49 points.
“It sucks, but these are the moments that make the other ones better,” he said.
“Not the end of the world. Still 13 rounds to go. We’ll have a few more opportunities, I'm sure.”
MotoGP™ heads to Barcelona next for the Catalan GP on 15-17 June.
