Jack Miller made a productive return to MotoGP World Championship action today as the series resumed at the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the USA following a three-week summer break. After shaking off some rust in the morning’s opening free practice session, when track conditions were not ideal, CWM LCR Honda rookie Miller made progress in the afternoon.

After shaving 1.2 seconds off his best lap and moving up two positions to finish the opening day in eighteenth, the Australian is confident of finding some extra front-end confidence tomorrow morning’s third free practice as he looks to step up his pace ahead of qualifying in the afternoon.

Jack Miller #43 (18th – 1’34.731)

“I’m pretty happy with today, we made a big improvement in the afternoon session although we are still not where I really want to be. In general I am happy with how the bike is feeling but we do need to get the front end working better. We have some ideas and I am looking forward to testing them tomorrow in FP3. Hopefully they work and help us to close that gap to the positions where I think we should be running.”
