Appearing at home, Jack Miller indicated that he would ignore the Ducati team order. The 2022 MotoGP will race in Australia this weekend, which is Jack Miller’s home country.
At this time, Ducati wanted to make Francesco Bagnaia world champion. Therefore, recently there has been a lot of buzz about team orders to help the Lenovo Ducati rider achieve maximum results in every race.
The Italian is the closest to leader Fabio Quartararo. They are only two points apart.
The issue of team order is known to make the Ducati racers heated up. One example is when Gresini racer Enea Bastianini urged Francesco Bagnaia in several races such as in San Marino, Aragon, and Japan.
Miller looked at the matter neutrally. But on the other hand, he still follows Ducati’s strategy to run the team order.
But it will be different when crossing the Phillip Island Circuit tomorrow, October 14-16. In front of his own public, Miller is determined to win the championship regardless of the team order.
“These kids [Bagnaia-Bastianini and the other Ducati riders] have a fight among themselves,”
“I will try not to do anything silly, but of course, it’s every rider’s dream to win a Grand Prix at their home,”
“It feels great to be back here on a factory bike. There’s no doubt I’ll do it.”
Miller now has a difference of 40 points with the leader of the standings. This means that he still has a chance to win in the remaining three series.
Even so, it is undeniable that the chances are slim. That’s what makes him appear carefree in the remaining races.
“I feel [being] 40 points behind is not ideal, it’s less than ideal but we will continue to do what we have been doing.”
