Jack Miller enjoyed a very encouraging start to the British Grand Prix weekend as he went 14th fastest in free practice on Friday. On a largely sunny day at Silverstone, the LCR Honda rider improved markedly in the afternoon session to give himself a big boost heading into qualifying on Saturday.

Miller was down in 22nd place after the morning session, but then went almost three seconds quicker in the afternoon. Indeed, he finished the day one spot above team-mate Cal Crutchlow on the timesheets and is now looking to maintain his early momentum throughout the weekend.

“I’m really happy with how things went today, especially this afternoon. This morning we struggled a lot, but we seemed to find something between myself and the bike this afternoon and we had a big change in results.

“I really feel comfortable and look forward to going over today’s data and finding something that can help us go even better tomorrow in qualifying so that we can do a really good job.”
