P5 and top Ducati honours for Miller at Catalan GP

28/09/20

The Aussie was in podium contention early on.

Australia's Jack Miller held off a fast-finishing Francesco 'Pecco' Bagnaia to claim top Ducati honours at the Catalan GP.

Miller started from fourth on the grid on Sunday, the best of the rest as Yamaha once again dominated qualifying and locked out the front row.

The Aussie was in podium contention in the early stages of the MotoGP™ race in Barcelona before tyre degradation saw him lose touch with the pace at the front.

Miller crossed the line in fifth place, just 0.127 seconds ahead of teammate Bagnaia, as Fabio Quartararo took the chequered flag and World Championship lead.

"I did a good race, but I wasn't fast enough," Miller said.

"I made a mistake in Turn 10 during the first lap and I lost time.

"But anyway, I got points, and now I will take some rest and I will focus on Le Mans."

Miller is sixth in the 2020 MotoGP™ standings, 33 points behind Petronas Yamaha's Quartararo.

Meanwhile, Miller has donated the visor tear-off strip that ended his race prematurely at the Emilia Romagna GP to charity.

Bids can be made at this link, with proceeds to support Two Wheels for Life, the official charity of the FIM and MotoGP™.

Miller returns to the track in a fortnight for the French GP at Le Mans on 9-11 October.
