Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

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.
