Jack Miller’s contract with Pramac Ducati has been extended for another year, which means that he will be riding the factory-specification GP20 until the end of the 2020 season.
Miller joined Pramac Ducati in 2018 switching from Marc VDS Honda. He seems to have a great hand on the Ducati GP20 which we’ve seen even in the current MotoGP season.
Speaking about the renewal of his contract, Miller said, “I am very happy to have reached this agreement. Pramac Racing is a team that made me feel comfortable right from the start and the relationship with Ducati is very close. I will have again the official bike at my disposal and will do my best to achieve great results. I would like to thank Ducati and my team for the great work they have done so far.”
There were rumours that Jorge Lorenzo will be joining Pramac Ducati from next season onwards as his performance with Repsol Honda hasn’t been great. But now Miller’s seat in the team is confirmed.
“Our main goal is to grow young riders and give them the chance to ride the factory Ducati bike one day,” Guidotti said. “Jack is proving to have great talent and his current position in the riders’ standings is confirmation of this. We are proud to have him with us also next season and we will now stay focused on our work to achieve even greater results in 2019.”
Let’s see who fills up for Zarco after he exits Red Bull KTM at the end of this season.
