Lack of grip leads to ‘disappointing’ result for Miller

06/06/22

The Aussie struggled for pace in the heat.

Jack Miller encountered a tough race at the Catalan Grand Prix, only managing to finish fourteenth.

The Aussie qualified in P11 on the grid which made him vulnerable for the race start on Sunday.

He dropped all the way back to 17th position in the opening laps and he had his work cut out for him to make his way back up the field.

Although he managed to climb his way back to eleventh, his tyre was so worn at the end, that he could not defend his position, eventually ending the race fourteenth.

"It was a really strange and disappointing race,” Miller said after the race.

“I suffered a lot from the lack of grip from start to finish.

“I decided to race with the hard tyre hoping that I could be strong at the end, but it didn't work out that way.

“The rivals were able to pass me both on the inside, and the outside and the rear tyre was so worn that I couldn't keep my lines. It's a pity."

Following the race, Miller now resides in ninth overall in the riders’ standings.

Multiple reports have indicated that Miller will be leaving Ducati at the end of the season and is on his way to KTM Factory Racing next year.
