Pramac Ducati’s Jack Miller is happy to go to the Aragon MotoGP round ‘in one piece’ after trying to race at Misano with very little grip under his Desmosedici.
Miller, and the rest of the Ducati men, struggled badly all weekend with the low-grip track, and the Australian says he is happy to be going somewhere this weekend that his bike will work properly.
“The rear I had no dramas the whole way through, but the front was moving around a bit too much, especially in the last quarter of the race,” said Miller at Misano.
“Turn 14 was a nightmare, Turn 10, all those slow ones. Just paranoid every time you go in there, you’re hoping you come out the other side.
I had a big moment probably with five to go when Mir passed. I was already having some moments before that but when he came past I started struggling a little bit more. I tried to go with them and I nearly ended up on my head.
“Then I saw there were seven seconds or something back to the next guy, so I just cruised round after that, brought it home. The way the weekend was going, to bring home some points, we’ll take it.
“Definitely looking forward to putting this weekend behind us and getting to a decent track. should suit our bike, our style.
Miller outlined the number of serious injuries that occurred during the Misano weekend, where there were 64 crashes over the three days.
“Just getting back to a normal grip level would be nice. It just goes to show. Niki Tuuli, broken femur, broken wrist, Oncu on Friday, broken collarbone, Marcel, broken collarbone…
“There have been so many people cracking bones, so just to come out of here in one piece with some sort of points, I’ll take it.”
