Big pic­ture Why Jack Miller was high and dry

Miller left high and dry

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

In a race that was more farce than tragedy, the sad sight of a lone Jack Miller sit­ting on his Du­cati as the rest of the field scram­bled back to their pits was some­thing to be­hold. Af­ter a storm­ing qual­i­fy­ing, Miller stuck to his guns and opted for slicks while ev­ery­one else went with wets. Af­ter a sight­ing lap the riders pan­icked and changed rub­ber, while the of­fi­cials pan­icked and changed the rules. Miller fumed in vain for over 15 min­utes as the or­gan­i­sa­tion got their act to­gether, ul­ti­mately award­ing him a 50m head start of one of the mad­dest GP races in re­cent his­tory. See p74.
