‰ÛÏIt was a really good race and I can be happy with the result," Miller declared. "But in all honesty I should have trusted my team more and come in earlier for the bike change. It‰Ûªs a real shame I stayed out a little bit too long because I am sure I could have been standing on the podium again.
"It was a tough call to make and there was about seven laps to go and I kept thinking about finishing the race on the wet tyres," he explained, "It was frustrating to see everybody come flying by me and I knew I had to come in and change. As soon as I went back out on slicks I just said ‰Û÷why didn‰Ûªt I do this earlier?‰Ûª It was a big lesson for me to take on board but it was my first real flag-to-flag race and it is good experience for me.
"I still had a lot of fun racing at the front with the likes of Valentino and I nearly passed Dani on the last lap to take the top six. When I was out on the slicks at the end my pace was really competitive and that gives me a big boost of confidence for the future," he concluded.
Michael Bartholemy: Team Principal, added, ‰ÛÏJack put up another great fight in what were extremely difficult conditions but it was clear that he came in too late to change to the slick tyres. If he had come in three laps earlier then I‰Ûªm sure he could have at least maintained his position in the top six and possibly fought for the podium again. Seventh place is still not a bad result and Jack is on a good run of form at the moment, which gives us plenty of reason to be optimistic that he can take another step after the summer break."
Today‰Ûªs seventh place though was his third successive top 10 finish to continue his impressive streak of form heading into the summer break.
