Jack Miller has expressed his pleasure in the initial feeling he experienced aboard the Ducati Desmosedici GP19 at Valencia’s post-season MotoGP test.

The Australian struck technical difficulties on day one, hindering his ability to progress on the new premier class contender, however the issues were rectified on day two, allowing him to lodge the fourth fastest time – just 0.182s off leader Maverick Vinales (Yamaha Factory Racing).

“I’m very happy,” Miller stated. “We’ve had two days of very interesting tests. The feeling with the bike is very good. It’s clear that there’s still work to be done on the setup and fixing some details but the first sensations are extremely positive.”

Miller utilised day two to work on set-up ahead of continued testing at Jerez in two weeks time, while his rookie Pramac Racing teammate Francesco Bagnaia impressed with a time just outside of the top 10.

“It’s been two important days,” said Bagnaia. “The first impact with Ducati was impressive and I must say that I immediately found myself very well with the whole team that made me feel at ease. We have made great strides forward and in Jerez we will work to continue to improve.”
