Pramac Ducati has confirmed that Jack Miller has signed a one-year extension with the team and will remain with Ducati next year.
Speaking about the new deal, Miller said:
“I am very happy to have reached this agreement. Pramac Racing is a team that made me feel comfortable right from the start and my relationship with Ducati is very close. I will again have the official bike at my disposal, and will do my best to achieve great results. I would like to thank Ducati and my team for the great work they have done so far.”
Miller will be riding a GP20 next season, as will team-mate Francesco Bagnaia. This means for the first time ever, there will be four identical factory Ducati bikes on the MotoGP grid.
2020 will be Miller’s third with the Pramac team, having switched from Marc VDS Honda in 2018. Miller has secured two podiums this season, including his first dry-weather podium in Austin. He currently sits eighth in the championship, six points behind Fabio Quartararo.
Pramac Racing riding high
Ducati Corse Sporting Director, Paolo Ciabatti, is delighted to have Miller on-board for another season. He commented:
“We are really glad to have reached an agreement with Pramac Racing that will allow our factory supported team to field Desmosedici GP 20 bikes for both Jack and Pecco next year.
“It will be the first time that Ducati will have four identical bikes in MotoGP, two for the factory Ducati Team and two for Pramac Racing. This exceptional effort will help us to collect and share more information and improve the development process. The aim is to obtain even better results and stimulate a fair and positive competition among our riders.
“We are very pleased that Jack will continue with us next year because he has shown continuous progress since he joined us in 2018. We want to thank Pramac Racing for their continued commitment to Ducati.”
Miller will return to action next weekend for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
