Finally we have the big news we were talking about the previous days: Jack Miller is not a new Factory Ducati rider from 2021, with the Australian who will have his big chance to shine riding a Factory bike. Miller signed a one year contract with an option to extend it until 2022, but it is not sure yet if he will replace Andrea Dovizioso or Danilo Petrucci.
Jack made his MotoGP debut on 2015 jumping from Moto3 to MotoGP when he was just 20 years old and after three years in Honda he had the chance to race with Pramac Ducati on 2018. The Australian conquered his first victory on 2016 at Assen during a wet Dutch GP riding a Satellite Honda.
Miller made a good 2019 season and was really close to have a Factory seat also on 2020, but at the end stayed with Pramac where he achieved podiums and was able to have good races ending the season with an 8th place overall.
These are Jack Miller’s words: “I would like to thank Paolo Campinoti, Francesco Guidotti and the whole Pramac Racing Team for the great support they gave to me. It is such an honor to have the opportunity to ride a Factory Ducati and I would like to thank the whole management, Claudio, Gigi, Paolo and Davide for the faith they have in me. I cannot wait to start racing this year and I am ready to take my responsibility to be a Factory Ducati Rider from 2021!”
