Jack Miller (Ducati / 6th): “I feel awful!” / MotoGP

Ducati ace Jack Miller was satisfied with 6th place in view of the situation at the MotoGP race in Mugello and speaks openly about the tragedy surrounding Jason Dupasquier.

The Australian Jack Miller crossed the finish line of the MotoGP race on Sunday in Mugello in 6th place. The warrior with the factory Ducati was six seconds short of winner Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha). After all, the two-time winner of the season (Jerez and Le Mans) clearly defended fourth place in the World Championship against Joan Mir, who finished third with the best Suzuki.

“For me I could talk about the race, it doesn’t change anything. I did my best. The wind was very irritating today, I had problems with it. I then slowed down and saw what I had to change. I was able to find my rhythm again afterwards. “

Miller admits, “I lost my flow a little then. The race was very fast, the guys were strong. I had to change my driving style a little. My main goal then was just to go home with points. I was in 6th place and quite happy with it. I’ve only been able to finish one MotoGP race here in Mugello in five years and wanted to see the checkered flag again. “

«I feel as you can imagine. It was terrible, a tragedy. A young lad was killed. He had to leave way too early. He’s a son, a brother. I see a lot of myself in Jason too. He showed great speed in Moto3 this year. It’s terrible! All you can say is he died doing the thing he loved. My condolences go out to his family. It must be terrible for a mother and a father, nobody wants that. We hate to see something like that. “

The Australian admits: “I feel bloody awful. We had dinner with the team last night. I then asked everyone to turn off the screens. The pictures were shown again several times. There should be no access to such TV material. But that’s just how it is in the world we live in. Jason was a racer. I’m sure he would have wanted the race to take place. The minute’s silence was very emotional. “
