There were a lot of rumors about Jack Miller and his future, especially after Summer break, where almost everyone talked about Jorge Lorenzo who wanted to move back to Ducati taking Australian's seat. At a certain point it seemed a real possibility, but after Austrian GP weekend it was clear that Miller was about to be confirmed also for 2020. Anyway, it was not wrong that Jorge tried to come back to Ducati and even Gigi Dall'Igna told about that possibility in the interviews post race in Spielberg. But Paolo Campinoti, Pramac's boss, arrived in Austria during the weekend to close the agreement with Jack Miller.
That means also Ducati will have four GP20s next year, as long as Francesco Bagnaia will ride an official Ducati on 2020 and the same will do Jack Miller again, with the two being teammates for one more year, over than the two Factory Ducatis of Andrea Dovizioso and Danilo Petrucci. A great opportunity for both Pramac's rider to shine with a competitive bike also for 2020, with the Australian who got some good results this year with two podiums conquered actually, one in Austin and the other one just two weeks ago during Czech GP.
"I am really happy, Pramac is a fantastic team and since the beginning they were amazing. My relationship with Ducati has been always close, I will have again an official bike and I will do my best to get great results. I want to thank Ducati and my team for the hard work they did", said Jack after the agreement.
Francesco Guidotti, Pramac Racing's Team Manager, was really satisfied as well: "Our goal is to help young riders on developing their talent giving them the opportunity to ride Factory Ducati. Jack is showing great talent and potential, his position in the Championship Standings confirms it. We are really happy to have him for one more season, we want to stay focus on our job to get other great results this season".
Also Paolo Ciabatti, Ducati's sports Director has something to say: "We are really happy for this agreement with Pramac Racing, we will have the opportunity to have on track other two GP20 for Jack and Pecco (Bagnaia) next season. For the first time Ducati will have four identical bikes in MotoGP: this will help a lot our development and share more datas. We are pleased also that Jack will stay with us next year, he showed a lot of progress since he joined us in 2018 and we want to thanks Pramac Racing as well for their constant work with Ducati"
