Jack Miller recovered from a small crash during the morning’s free practice session to qualify in 22nd place for Sunday’s Grand Prix of the Czech Republic.

The CWM LCR Honda rider had made good progress on the first day of practice, but was caught out during the morning of day two with conditions different again.

Having dusted himself off for qualifying in the afternoon, the Australian will now need all of his race-craft to pick his way through the order from row eight at Brno, but has proved himself to be a fierce competitor in the early laps of races in his rookie MotoGP season so far.

“I lost a little bit of confidence after the crash in the morning – we’ve been struggling both days with the front bouncing around on the bumps out there. Qualifying was reasonable though. The position is not good, but the time was good, but it means it’s going to be a tough old race tomorrow. Everyone’s going really fast here so I look forward to some good fights, but first of all we have to get the front end sorted, we’ve got a bit more work to do on that.”

“The whole track was definitely a little bit better today with more rubber having been laid down. The top guys are half a second under lap record pace so it must be all right out there. It’s a hard track to get around, but I’ve been having a lot of fun.”
