Jack Miller could not have started his Japanese Grand Prix better, as he finished the first day of this sixteenth round of the season with the fastest time.

” It was a good day admits JackAss. ” I enjoyed the longest session., I was able to do a lot of work. It was good to change the bike a bit and then compare it with the same tyres. We understood what gearing means for the bike in constant weather conditions. “. And he adds: Of course, we still keep an eye on the time we had left. We ended up putting on a new set of tires. The track is in good condition, the bike works very, very well here. Correct, lap time could have been a bit betterbut we can still improve tomorrow “.
