Ducati say farewell to Jack Miller

The Italian brand have paid tribute to the Aussie after five years of racing together

Jack Miller’s time with Ducati is coming to an end. The Aussie has spent five years with the Bologna bullets, three of which were with the Pramac Racing squad and the last two as part of the factory Ducati Lenovo Team. It’s been a period littered with success as the number 43 has stood on the podium on 16 occasions during that time, two of which have been on the top step.

Miller also played an integral role in helping Ducati take the Constructors’ World Championship crown in 2020 and 2021, and the title of Best Team in MotoGP™ in 2021. The figureheads of the Italian team were quick to pay tribute to Miller’s efforts with them, including current teammate Francesco Bagnaia who tweeted it was “an honour to share the box with you [Miller] for these four years.”

With 11 rounds still to go in 2022, there’s plenty to play for as Miller and Ducati look to make it a memorable farewell!

Luigi Dall’Igna, General Manager of Ducati Corse: “Together with Jack, we have spent five wonderful seasons, during which we have achieved truly significant goals for us, such as the two Constructors’ World Titles obtained in 2020 and 2021 and last year’s Best Team Title. In addition, we should not forget the numerous podiums and the two stunning victories at Jerez and Le Mans. Miller is a very talented rider who has been able to understand our Desmosedici GP at its best. He is a fair and loyal person on whose full commitment we have always been able to count. I would therefore like to thank him on behalf of Ducati, the Ducati Lenovo Team, and all our partners for these five years spent together and wish him all the best for his near future!”

Jack Miller: “It’s been a really important five years for me: together with Ducati, I’ve achieved several podiums, including two wins that I’ll never forget. In addition to the two Constructors’ World Titles and the Team Title, last year, I finished fourth in the Championship, and that was my best result ever in MotoGP. Together with the Pramac Racing Team and the Ducati Lenovo Team, I have grown a lot as a rider and year after year, I have always felt like the best version of myself. Next year I will take on a new challenge, but right now, I want to think only about finishing this last season with my team in the best possible way. I thank all of Ducati Corse, my team, Gigi, Paolo, Davide, and the people who have worked with me over these five seasons.”
