Miller silent on reports of switch to Ducati
AUSSIE MotoGP rider Jack Miller has reportedly signed for Ducati for 2018, leaving Honda after three years.
Miller, who is in Japan testing for the Suzuka 8- Hour race at the end of the month, has not commented on reports out of Europe which place him with the Pramac Ducati team, replacing Brit Scott Redding and partnering Danilo Petrucci.
The 22- year- old told redbull. com three days ago that contract talks were continuing.
“The truth is that I’m close to being able to say what I’m doing next year but can’t confirm it yet, but it’ll be soon, I hope,’’ he said.
The Queenslander jumped from Moto3 to the premier class in 2015 when he joined LCR Honda for one year before joining Belgian team Marc VDS Racing. Miller would be the first Australian to join Ducati since Casey Stoner who won his first world title with the Italian team in 2007.
