Jack Miller: Ducati is taking steps in the right direction

Thursday, 11 November 2021

The Aussie admits there’s a lot more work to do.

With the 2021 MotoGP™ campaign coming to a close at Valencia this Sunday, Australia's Ducati Lenovo Team rider Jack Miller joined In the Fast Lane co-hosts Matt Clayton and Chris Vermeulen to sum up the best world championship finish of his career, how Ducati has made giant strides this season, and talk about Remy Gardner's chances of winning the Moto2™ world title this weekend.

Miller is close to wrapping up his most successful MotoGP™ season to date, however, the Aussie admits there’s a lot more work to do.


“As it was last year, we left a lot of points on the table. Whether it was through my mistakes, or let’s say some other issues, throughout the campaign,” said Miller.

“It’s another step forward, another step in the right direction. So, we’ll take that but next year will be another step again,” he continued.

Ducati has now won back-to-back Constructors’ World Championships; Miller says thanks to good riding and improved bikes, the team now challenges for a podium finish at circuits that are traditionally difficult for Ducati.

“We go to places that they say, you know, are not particularly a Ducati track, I feel that’s false now. We don’t really need to be saying that too much anymore, unless maybe at a place like Assen. But I think with the developments we’ve got for next year, I think we can really even improve quite a considerable amount there,” said Miller.

“The beauty with Ducati, especially now, we’ve got so many good riders on the bike and so many good bikes on the grid, so not one of them is a three-year-old piece of junk... that’s what’s built Ducati to what they are now.”
