Jack Miller labels Assen P9 as 'not good enough'

Jack Miller has managed to bring home a ninth-place finish and currently resides eighth in the championship standings despite difficulties in Assen.

The Australian described the Dutch GP as the 'most boring race of my life'. 

Miller, who started from tenth on the grid battled high winds and lamented excessive tyre wear during the race.   

The Pramac Racing rider ended up finishing 26 seconds behind winner Maverick Vinales, who took Yamaha’s first win of the season.

“I made my thoughts clear to the guys in blue (Michelin) and to other people, just to see what the **** is actually going on here because it’s two races in a row that we can’t use the soft at all,” Miller said via crash.net.

“It was the most boring race of my life. I was just sat there. I tried to follow Crutch (Cal Crutchlow) and (Franco) Morbidelli in the first couple of laps. 

“I was pushed off-line. I could not turn. Turning is already one of our weak points. With the wind it was just near on impossible. You have no idea how many times at turn 15 I was off on that marble-y sort of stuff just trying to hold it up.

“Ten seconds between Petrucci and myself is not good enough. I’m not happy with that. But I didn’t feel comfortable. We needed some points today. I managed to do that. I never lost a position over the race so I’ll take it."

The Australian has enjoyed his best start to a MotoGP™ season so far and even managed a podium back at the Americas GP. 

Miller will be keen to put in a good performance at this weekend’s Grand Prix at the Sachsenring in Germany 5-7 July.
