Miller drops the title

The Australian driver does not want to be nominated as a candidate for the World Championship: "The last time I said that I could fight for the title, when Márquez retired, I crashed in Jerez."


Austria and Ducati, Ducati and Austria. The binomial between the Red Bull Ring and the house of Borgo Panigale continues in 2020. If since returning to the World Cup, the Italian factory had made full of victories, in this double stop it has taken a win and a second place. Andrea Dovizioso has once again emerged as the rival to beat and Jack Miller, with the satellite team, has made two podiums that have raised him to third place in the World Cup, confirming him as a serious contender for the title.

However, the Australian pilot prefers not to consider himself a candidate. Although the numbers are what they are and they put him squarely in the fight, Miller remembers the fall of Márquez in Jerez and his words after the race, running as a contender for the Championship. The following weekend, at the Andalusian GP, the one from Townsville lost control of his Ducati and added a zero to his locker, something that he does not want to repeat: "Sure, I'm only 14 points behind the leaders, but The last time I said that I could fight for the title this year because Marc Márquez retired, I fell in Jerez. "

For this reason, Miller sets the goal of the next race, now that he seems to have solved the problems of past races: "That's why I always look at the next races and not at the whole championship, I learned the lesson in this regard in the most After the crash in Jerez and the problems we had in Brno, we have now been able to get some big points. Things went well in Austria and there are still some great circuits on the World Championship calendar that I am going to enjoy. We'll see where that takes us ".

The action will return with the San Marino GP at the Misano circuit, which opens asphalt this season. "We have new asphalt there and the Ducati GP20 tends to perform especially well when the grip level is high. So we have to make the best of the next two races," concluded the Pramac Racing driver.
