Miller’s miraculous recovery in Malaysia

Monday, 24 October 2022

The Australian found himself almost last after the first lap.

Jack Miller had to work his way through the field at the Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix, eventually finishing sixth after dropping as low as P21.

Miller carried wounds from his collision with Alex Marquez in Australia this weekend and made matters worse when he crashed in qualifying.


“I was suffering quite a lot with the bruises I have on my left leg after the crash at Phillip Island because they’re in a place where I put a lot of pressure on the leg when I’m pushing on the bike, so the rest of the body is sore because I’ve been compensating for that all weekend,” said Miller.

“My leg actually started to feel alright on Saturday morning and then you saw what happened on Saturday afternoon when I high-sided in qualifying, so it was a bit tender again after that. My body right now is pretty toast if I’m being honest.”

The Ducati Lenovo rider was “sandwiched” going into turn one, forcing him to back out and run wide.

In the mind of Miller, his race started after the first lap; “It was all about getting through the first lap safely and starting my race from there, let’s say.”

“It felt like a long race just trying to pick guys off lap by lap, getting my head down and not thinking too far ahead.”

Although the World Championship is now out of the question, Miller is still aiming to finish in the top three and will need a win at Valencia to do so.
