Jack Miller...Factory rider from the 2021 MotoGP season.
Jack Miller has impressed everyone in the MotoGP Paddock with his performances at Pramac Ducati, with his regular podium finisher over the last two seasons firmly establishing the Australian as a leading prospect for a factory Ducati deal. In his first five years in the premier class, he has managed to win the Dutch GP in 2016 and has finished on the podium on numerous occasions at many differing circuits.
Miller said..."First of all I want to thank warmly Paolo Campinoti, Francesco Guidotti and all the Pramac Racing Team for the great support I have received from them in the two and a half years spent together." Miller commented. "It is an honour for me to be able to continue my MotoGP career with the Borgo Panigale manufacturer and I would like to thank all the Ducati management, Claudio, Gigi, Paolo and Davide, for having trusted me and given me this incredible opportunity."..."I look forward to starting riding again this year, and I am ready to fully commit to the responsibility of being an official Ducati rider in 2021."
Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding added: "Since he arrived in the Pramac Racing Team, Jack has grown steadily, proving himself one of the fastest and most talented riders in the championship". "So we are happy that he has agreed to ride the official Desmosedici GP bike of the Ducati Team next year.".."We are convinced that Jack has all the right skills to fight continuously for the positions that matter, in every race, starting already this season with the Desmosedici GP20 of the Pramac Racing Team, and taking a further step forward next year thanks to the support of the Ducati Team."
It is yet to be confirmed 'officially' who Millar will replace at Ducati, but Danilo Petrucci's manager announce just yesterday that Petrucci will move to the World SBK Ducati team where he will race alongside Scott Redding.
