The Ducati Lenovo Team MotoGP team extends its contract with Jack Miller through 2022.
2021 is the premiere season for Jack Miller with the factory Ducati Lenovo MotoGP team, after three years of competing for the satellite Pramac Ducati team. His recent success of back-to-back race wins in Jerez and Le Mans just may have helped increase his stock as Ducati Lenovo has agreed to extend Jack Miller’s contract through the 2022 season.
As of publishing, the Australian-born Miller is currently positioned in fourth place in the championship points after the first five races of the 2021 season. Ducati and the Ducati Lenovo Team lead the Constructors’ and Teams’ standings.
“I am thrilled to be able to continue my adventure with the Ducati Lenovo Team also next season! Wearing these colours is a great honour for me, and having been able to win the last two races on the Desmosedici GP is a real dream! It wouldn’t have been possible without the great support that I’ve received from Ducati and the whole team during the last months, and I want to thank Gigi, Paolo, Davide, and Claudio for the faith they had in me. Now I can solely concentrate on the current season. We are fourth in the standings, not far from the leader, and the Championship is still very long. I will do my best to continue this positive trend and fight for the title. Forza Ducati!” – Jack Miller, #43 Ducati Lenovo Team.
“We are delighted to be able to announce that we will continue with Miller also in 2022. In this first season, Jack has shown great talent, professionalism, and strong determination. He was able to secure two important victories in different conditions after a tough start to the season. For sure, he is one of the riders that better knows how to understand our Desmosedici GP to fully take advantage of its potential in any condition, as the recent success in Le Mans has demonstrated. As always, our goal remains the Championship title, and we believe that with Jack and Pecco, we will be among the main protagonists of the 2022 title charge.” – Luigi Dall’Igna, Ducati Corse General Manager.
