Australian Jack Miller as confirmed he’s working in the right direction of finalising his Ducati Desmosedici GP19 set-up following three days of MotoGP World Championship testing at Losail International Circuit in Qatar.

The Pramac Racing ace closed out the final pre-season test with the 10th fastest time on day three despite attempting a time attack in less than ideal conditions, capping off a valuable three days on the motorcycle.

“We worked effectively on the set-up and geometry of the bike even though in the end we had to deal with a technical issue [on day two] that slowed us down,” Miller commented. “I was able to improve my time despite the humidity that certainly didn’t help and for this, I thank the team that did a great job.

“I’m satisfied with these three days of testing. We did a good job and the race pace was very good. At the end of the day, we tried a time attack with a good lap-time even if the conditions of the track were not the best. There are still some details that we need to improve but we are in the right direction.”

The test was topped by Maverick Vinales (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) on the final day ahead of rookie Fabio Quartararo (Petronas Yamaha SRT) and reigning world champion Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda).
