Confidence shaken but Jack Miller positive | EVENTS

Jack Miller #43 managed a solid 57 laps in Day 2 of testing in Sepang with his fastest time of 2’03.083 placing him 23rd on the timesheet.

The Aussie young gun admits riding in the premier class in the Open category RC213V-RS is a challenge but he’s hopeful of greater progress on his lap time in the week ahead.

“So, it wasn’t such a bad day for us, we are learning step by step about the MotoGP bike. We missed this morning because I had a small crash with the old tyres and after that it shook my confidence a little bit. By the end of the day we started to become a bit more comfortable with the bike and we were working on long distance again, working to conserve the tyres. Tomorrow morning we will look to push for a good lap time in the early hours before the temperatures rise too much. All in all we’re sort of happy today, I’m still not where I want to be but we are improving step by step.”

Miller made the jump to MotoGP in 2014, skipping Moto2 to move straight through to the premier class.
