DUCATI LENOVO TEAM

Jack Miller

 

Born in Townsville, Australia, on 18th January 1995, Jack Miller took the first steps of his racing career in motocross, collecting six Australian titles before switching to road racing in 2009. Moving to Europe to compete in the German 125cc championship, Jack won his first IDM title in 2011, aged just 16. Following his success in Germany, the Australian made his World Championship debut the same year, racing six Grands Prix in the 125cc class.

In 2012, Miller took part in the entire Moto3 World Championship, racing with the Caretta Technology Team. He also contested the 2013 Championship with the same squad, becoming one of the main protagonists at the end of the season. In 2014, Jack became a title contender with the Ajo Motorsport Team. After a hard-fought season, which saw him taking ten podiums (including six wins) and eight pole positions, the Australian rider finally ended the year as runner up in the Moto3 World Champion, just two points behind Alex Márquez.

The extraordinary talent he showed in 2014 earned him a direct promotion to MotoGP the following year. After a first season trying to adapt to the new category, Jack joined Team Marc VDS in 2016. In that year, he obtained his first extraordinary success in the rain at the TT Circuit Assen in the Dutch GP, despite a year marked by repeated injuries, which forced him to miss some races. After collecting a series of top ten results in 2017, always with the same team, Ducati chose Miller, and in 2018, he moved to the Pramac Racing Team.

Riding the Desmosedici GP bike, Jack scored his first pole position in the premier class in Argentina that same year. In 2019, the Australian rider was finally able to showcase his talent: with five podium finishes throughout the season in the GP of the Americas, Czech Republic, Aragón, Australia and the Valencia GP, he finished 2019 in eighth place overall with 165 points. In 2020, in his third year with the Borgo Panigale red machine, Miller was once again a protagonist on several occasions, adding another four podiums to his MotoGP tally and proving himself ready to wear the factory Ducati team colours.

Jack joined the Ducati Lenovo Team, the factory team of the Bologna-based manufacturer, in 2021. After a difficult start to the season - marked by arm pump issues in his right forearm (which required surgery) and a crash - the Aussie rider was finally able to regain his competitiveness at the Spanish Grand Prix. Jack won the race at Jerez and secured the podium's top step in the French Grand Prix just a fortnight later at Le Mans. A third-place in Barcelona followed his two consecutive wins, bringing Miller 25 points off the leader. The fluctuating results in the second half of the season did not allow him to stay in the title fight until the end, although he managed to score two more third places in the last two races of the year, at Portimão and Valencia. With five podiums, including two victories, the Ducati Lenovo Team rider finished 2021 in fourth place overall (181 points), his best MotoGP finish ever. 

In his second year as an official rider for the Bologna-based team, Miller aims to add himself to this year’s list of title contenders.
