Jack Miller searching for confidence as Qatar test wraps

Posted:

Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS rider Jack Miller endured a difficult three days under the floodlights of the Losail International Circuit, where he was participating in the final MotoGP preseason test of 2016.

Miller struggled with a lack of confidence in Qatar, specifically with a lack of feedback from the front tyre. Although he and his crew made some progress over the course of the three days, the Australian is aware that there is still a lot more work to be done in this area when he returns to Qatar for the first race of the season. The predominantly right hand Losail International Circuit also took its toll on Miller‰Ûªs injured right leg, much more so than the mainly left hand Phillip Island.

‰ÛÏQatar has certainly been a test for us, trying to get to grips with everything and also having to contend with all the right hand corners, which were hard on my injured foot," Miller explained.

"The injury is okay, still improving, but it definitely gave me a bit more grief here than at Phillip Island. It was also a difficult test in terms of the set up with the bike; I haven‰Ûªt built up any confidence in the front tyre just yet and had a few moments just trying to stay on two wheels. We did find a few little things, but it‰Ûªs still not where we want it to be and there is still some work to do. Hopefully we can find something between now and the first race so that we can come back here to Qatar a little bit stronger.‰Û
