Motorcycle News (UK) - - 2016 Motorgp Silverstone Preview -

Al­ready an un­likely win­ner in wet con­di­tions this year and al­ways strong at Sil­ver­stone, if it rains again this year, it’s hard to rule out Jack Miller.

De­nied a chance to bat­tle for a podium last year by an un­for­tu­nate mis­take that took out both him and team-mate Cal Crutchlow, if the Aussie was ca­pa­ble of run­ning at the front on the dis­as­trous Honda pro­duc­tion ma­chine then there’s no rea­son why he can’t re­peat the per­for­mance on the more ad­vanced Marc VDS RC213V.

And, with his dry-weather per­for­mances im­prov­ing as well, it would be no sur­prise if he was able to im­press, even if the sun shines. The only is­sue might be fit­ness, af­ter a mon­ster crash dur­ing warm-up in Aus­tria left him miss­ing Brno with hair­line frac­tures to a wrist and a ver­te­bra. Only time will tell.
