Jack Miller will ride the Ducati bike in the 2022 MotoGP season, announced by the team.
One of the most desirable seats has already been taken in the 2022 MotoGP grid. It has been confirmed on Tuesday morning that Ducati extended the contract with their Australian rider Miller.
Miller himself reacted to the announcement: “I am thrilled to be able to continue my adventure with the Ducati Lenovo Team also next season! Wearing these colors is a great honour for me, and having been able to win the last two races on the Desmosedici GP is a real dream!”
“It wouldn’t have been possible without the great support that I’ve received from Ducati and the whole team during the last months, and I want to thank Gigi, Paolo, Davide, and Claudio for the faith they had in me. Now I can solely concentrate on the current season. We are fourth in the standings, not far from the leader, and the Championship is still very long. I will do my best to continue this positive trend and fight for the title. Forza Ducati!”
The Ducati general manager Luigi Dall’Igna added: “We are delighted to be able to announce that we will continue with Miller also in 2022. In this first season, Jack has shown great talent, professionalism, and strong determination. He was able to secure two important victories in different conditions after a tough start to the season. For sure, he is one of the riders that better knows how to understand our Desmosedici GP to fully take advantage of its potential in any condition, as the recent success in Le Mans has demonstrated.”
“As always, our goal remains the Championship title, and we believe that with Jack and Pecco, we will be among the main protagonists of the 2022 title charge”.
Miller currently sits 4th in the championship with 64 points scored. He has had 2 wins so far in Spain and France.
