Lack of grip costs Miller dearly at Aragon GP

19/10/20

The Aussie struggled for race pace.

Jack Miller said a lack of grip cost him dearly at the Aragon GP, as the Australian settled for a P9 finish in Sunday’s MotoGP™ race.

Miller, running medium tyres front and rear, started from fifth on the grid but struggled for pace as the race progressed at MotorLand Aragon.

Alex Rins (Team Suzuki Ecstar), who qualified tenth, took the chequered flag ahead of Alex Marquez (Repsol Honda) and Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar).

“Definitely not the result we wanted, but we did everything we could,” Miller said.

“It was not a bad race, but I had no grip, and it was very difficult to keep a fast pace until the end.

“Anyway, next week we will race here again and, with the data we have, hopefully, we can do better.”

The 25-year-old dropped one place in the MotoGP™ World Championship standings to eighth overall.

Mir leads the title race on 121 points, ahead of Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT, 115 points) and Maverick Vinales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP, 109).

MotoGP™ returns to MotorLand Aragon this weekend for the second of two consecutive rounds at the circuit, the Teruel GP on 23-25 October.
