Jack Miller will face the last race weekend with the Ducati team. The dream is to end the adventure with an ambitious result.
In the Ducati garage, the focus is on Pecco Bagnaia, one step away from winning the MotoGP title. In Valencia everything is ready for the big world championship, after fifteen years from the world success of Casey Stoner, history repeats itself. But it will also be a goodbye weekend, because Jack Miller he will leave the Borgo Panigale house after this round at Ricardo Tormo to move to his new KTM team.
Ducati and the Australian rider have spent five seasons together in the premier class, he has bet on him despite the three previous seasons in Honda that were disappointing to say the least. His departure is dictated by the advance of Enea Bastianini and Jorge Martin, who competed for his factory saddle until the end of August, when the leaders of the Emilian company decided to focus on the Gresini team from Romagna, now fighting for third place, with a gap of just one point from Aleix Espargarò.
Jack Miller tries the last lunge
The third place finish is a very coveted goal by any driver, since it allows you to collect quite substantial economic bonuses. Jack Miller is 5th in the standings, with a gap of 22 points from Bastianini and 23 points from the Catalan of the Aprilia. Aiming for the world podium seems almost impossible, but the oceanic standard bearer will try to the last. After all, aiming for victory would be indirectly a favor for Pecco Bagnaia …
The goal of ‘JackAss‘is to ruin the party for Enea Bastianini e Aleix Espargarò. “It will be a special weekend for the team with Pecco in the running for the world title, but I also hope to be able to leave Ducati with one last important result. Mathematically, I still have the chance to finish third in the league. It is not easy, but until the end we will work to try to reach this important milestone together“.
On Sunday evening he will say goodbye to his team to migrate to the new KTM garage, where his track engineer will follow him Christian Pupulin. “This will also be my last race with the Ducati Lenovo Team and the Desmosedici GP“Said Jack Miller with some melancholy. “I hope to say goodbye to Ducati with an ambitious goal”.
