Jack Miller Secures Maiden MotoGP Points At GP Of the Americas

Posted:

CWM LCR Honda Team rider Jack Miller secured his first-ever points in the MotoGP class as he finished 14th in the Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

Starting from 19th on the grid, the Australian made a superb start and climbed as high as 11th at one point during the race.

However, he was later involved in a collision that would ultimately cost him a couple of places in the final standings.

Miller ‰ÛÒ who came home under a quarter of a second behind former MotoGP world champion Nicky Hayden, was pleased with the result and insisted he had gathered crucial experience for the season ahead.

‰ÛÏI was really happy with the race, I learnt a lot fighting with the guys like Nicky (Hayden) and the rest of the group." Miller explained.

"I must improve the management of my tyres over the first few laps. I need to learn not to be so aggressive on the front tyre, and especially the rear, so that I have more possibilities at the end of the race.

‰ÛÏOverall, I am very happy to finish the race and finally get some points. But now we have to make the next step and look to try and finish inside the top ten.‰Û
