Miller stays positive after crashing from the lead

Monday, 5 September 2022

The Aussie is looking on the bright side.

Hopes were sky high for Jack Miller after claiming his first pole position in four years at the San Marino Grand Prix.

The situation quickly turned sour on Sunday after the Aussie crashed on lap two after getting a great start.


Miller was able to quickly re-join the race but with no rear brake and wings on one side, his Ducati proved to be a bit of a handful.

The Queenslander eventually brought his bike home in 18th place, bringing his run of podiums to an end.

"After I managed to take the lead, I started to push to try and create some margin over the rest of the group, but on the second lap, I went a little wide, ended up on the kerb and crashed,” Miller said.

“It's a shame, but these things happen in racing.

“I try to look at the positive side of this weekend: we were always competitive, and my feeling with the bike continues to be incredible, so I can't wait to get back on track at Aragon to try again".

His Ducati teammate Pecco Bagnaia won the race after an epic duel with Enea Bastianini for the win.

Miller now sits sixth overall in the riders’ standings, only two points behind Johann Zarco in fifth.

He’ll have one week off and will take to the track again at Aragon from September 16 to 18.
