Cal Crutchlow is sure: Jack Miller has the potential to become the next MotoGP World Champion. The Australian officially signed with Factory Ducati for 2021 and the news started a lot of discussions regarding his competitivity and if he will be able to end Marc Marquez’s reign.
His friend Cal Crutchlow, LCR Honda rider, does not have any doubt at all: “Jack has the talent to beat Marc in a season. He scored a podium in his home race, it is an incredible result for every rider. I believe a lot on him, he need to step up next year to fight against Marc. He is the guy able to do that. Maybe I will give him some tips when I will retire, if he wants”
It is not a secret that Cal and Jack are good friends and the two were even teammates back in 2015, when Jack made his MotoGP debut jumping from Moto3 to the major class without doing a single Moto2 season. A lot of guys thought that was not the right choice for him, but he showed pace and even won a race in 2016 at Assen, his first one in MotoGP, while he achieved podiums last year.
Only time will tell if Jack Miller could really fight against Marc Marquez for the World Title, but surely his time in Factory Ducati is going to be a really interesting one!
