Runner Up by a whisker of the 2014 Moto 3 championship, the Young Australian Jack Miller is known to be a fierce Rider who never gives up. Add to his undeniable talent and strong will, his persona of a untamed 'speak what I shall feel, whatever it may be' attitude, has earned him a lot many fans inside the paddock and outside too. His talent is so evident that his bagging of a Moto GP seat and skipping the Moto 2 class altogether didn't even come as a surprise.
As a rookie to Moto GP next season, the CWM LCR's new recruit Jack Miller is entitled to extra test days in order to smoothen the transition to the premier class, and was joined out on the 5.543-kilometre circuit by various test riders. Temperatures were cooler than during the scorching October race at the track, peaking at around 32°C, but with only four riders testing the surface took a while to clean up.
The Australian, was able to put in 39 laps of the track on his new Honda RC213V-RS until light rain at 4pm brought a halt to any further progress. Testing continues at Sepang for Miller and the CWM LCR Honda Team on Thursday and Friday, when the 19 year-old will hope for better conditions to carry on with his adaptation to the new bike.
Jack Miller said "Today we got a chance to learn another track on the new bike and it is a completely different style here compared to Valencia. It was actually quite a difficult day because the bike was slipping and spinning up quite a lot, with there not being many bikes out on-track.
By the end of the day, though, I started to really enjoy myself. I’m learning more and more about how to adapt my style to the CWM LCR Honda and how to set it up a bit better. The bike is still incredible, I’m really happy with the power it has and so to ride it here in Malaysia and to be able to use its full potential is great. Tomorrow we will continue working on my riding style and we’ll see where I get to in the end."
