Jack Miller secured the best grid position of his rookie MotoGP World Championship season with an outstanding performance in qualifying at Indianapolis this afternoon. In hot but cloudy conditions the CWM LCR Honda rider made constant progress, building on the work he had done yesterday and working with his crew to solve the front-end issues he had experienced in free practice.

The Australian came out strongly in Q1 and posted a best lap of 1’33.381, an improvement of 1.4 seconds on his best effort from yesterday and enough for sixth fastest in that session and sixteenth overall on the grid for tomorrow’s race. 

Jack Miller #43 (16th – 1’33.381)

“I’m quite happy with today, it’s my best qualifying so far but not only that, this is the best I have ever felt riding this bike. It feels like a long time that we have been working to get this comfortable and now we are here.

“Tomorrow will be a tough race but I am happy with what we have achieved here so far so who knows what can happen. Our aim is to get the best possible start and after that we will see!”
