Miller seals best MotoGP™ season in style

Jack Miller celebrates P3 in Parc Ferme at Valencia 2019

Jack Miller ended his best MotoGP™ season in style by claiming yet another podium at the Valencia Grand Prix, which also confirmed his place as the most successful Pramac Racing rider ever.

The Australian rider qualified for Sunday’s race on the front row of the grid in P3, ahead of Ducati Team riders Andrea Dovizioso (P6) and Danilo Petrucci (P10).

An exceptional race start saw Miller lead at the first corner, before relinquishing the spot to Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha), who was later overtaken by Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda).

World champion Marquez won the race, followed by Quartararo and Miller – the Aussie’s fifth podium finish of the 2019 season.

“I think I made up for (the) last (race) in Malaysia, fading back,” Miller said on his official website.

“Today I was consistent, staying there. I was chasing Fabio, I saw him make a few mistakes in the centre part of the race and I felt like I was coming back towards him, got a second wind.

“But an amazing race by those two, flawless – all of us were just hammering away. It was a long but fun race. They go quickly when you’re constantly chasing like today.”

Miller ends 2019 with 165 championship points – more than any other Pramac Racing rider has managed in a single season – smashing his own personal best of 91 in 2018. 

Although the 2019 MotoGP™ season has officially finished, Miller returns to the track one last time for the Valencia Test, providing a sneak peek for the 2020 season, on 19-20 November.
