In the last race of Jerez de la Frontera, Jack Miller he returned to victory in MotoGP after his success at Assen in 2016, sweeping away doubts about his complex start to the season in the Ducati factory team, marked by compartment syndrome problems which were then resolved with an operation. Miller thus climbed to sixth place in the world championship standings, to 27 points from the championship leader, teammate ‘Pecco’ Bagnaia. The Australian will try to give continuity to the Spanish GP already at Le Mans, a track that gave him two fourth places in MotoGP and a success in Moto3 in 2014.
The victory in Jerez. “I had a mix of sensations, on the one hand there is a kind of relief, on the other you have even more desire to get back on track and compete. In the end we are pilots and we always want more and improve ourselves. No doubt now I will try to repeat a nice weekend. I was quite calm after Jerez, and I was able to train as the weather was good in Spain. I arrive here well prepared, I’ve always done well in the wet, so if it rains, good for me. I have an account to settle with Le Mans after last year. “

Reactions of the family. “I talked to my parents and they are fine. They were certainly super excited about the victory, even if the times were very different due to the time zone. They celebrated until the early hours of the morning. We talked about the race and hearing their point of view was very nice. Lucy was also very nice to me. While Cal (Crutchlow, ed) said he taught me everything.”
Expectations for Le Mans. “I have a love and hate relationship with France, especially with Le Mans. I think I have a nice package in my hands, we are always close to winning. I think that here and at Mugello we will have a good chance of finishing on the podium, as on all the other tracks. The last sector is the one I like least, because the last two corners are very tight.“
