Alma Pramac Racing today announced that Jack Miller has been confirmed for the 2019 MotoGP season. The Australian rider, who is directly under contract with Ducati, will defend the colours of the Tuscany-based team on the 2019 version of the Ducati Desmosedici GP. He is also expected to step into the factory team from 2020 on wards. Last race weekend was a tough for the rider. He started conservatively by protecting his tires in the early laps and the strategy was the right one. But after nine laps when the Australian rider started to push and reached ninth position, a technical problem forced him to quit a good race.
“I managed to save the tire in order to be competitive in the second half of the race. I was with Vinales and Zarco and felt confident. Then I had a technical problem. It is a shame. I could make a good result. I can’t wait to be in Assen”.
