    He won't be getting Petruci's spot but Ducati want him competitive, I don't reckon there would be much between Pramac and the factory rides.
    It's gr8 to see at the Czech GP the only guy willing to sit on the grid ready to go was Jack again. Tough as nails that boy..

    My Guess, and i state guess is it will remain as is. I would think that the money he thinks he is worth will kill the deal

    Watch the race!!
    was just checking Jack had the second fastest speed 310.3KPH Mark was fastest speed with 311KPH Jacks team mate & the Ducati factory bikes had a few KPH slower speeds. the speed tell's he has the power, just has to be able to use it.

    Considering Jack's motorcycling history, he's a bloody marvel. Best thing to come out of Townsville since the Bruce Highway.

    It’s all on tonight, they couldn’t possibly replace Jack with the 10 pin bowler Lorenzo. Come on Paulo give him the papers.

    Well, he is a DNF yet again.  It must be just me, but I'm not a fan of Miller.  He has no real personality like Riccardo or MickD and his riding is so-so.

    Yep he lost the front end, but it was a fantastic race all the same.

    What a nail biter ending... I love races that are that close.  The chap in third did well, but I'm an old Kiwi so will never support him.

    Seems as steady as she goes for Jack, Lorenzo has not asked for either a contract or a release from Honda. Hopefully this settles things down a bit for Jack.

    Oh and Jack has spoken to KTM who will pick him up on a multi yr deal as Zarco will not be resigned

    Pretty sure Miller has confirmed he's locked in with Ducati now til end of 2020, when I think just about everyone is out of contract and itll be a wild silly season.

    You recon....I think he rode like chit.  Front row to 8th is not stepping up.  Plus the pre-race interview was shocking - he needs a personality injection or coaching of some sort.  His team are really dropping the ball on managing his public persona.

    it's hard, and unless you are actually in the pits with the team & know what's going on.
    look at the speed, the Ducati was down on speed compared to the Suzuki Honda & Yamaha, that tell's me less power on the day. Jack came in behind the Factory Ducati and was second Ducati over the line. the 8th spot I quoted was on point so far for the year. he gains experience.
    it's easy for us watching from a lounge chair to judge, put your self in the racers place see what it's like.

    The reason it was down on speed was because when it does chime in its spinning up while the others with less power are getting drive. The Suzuki is the lowest powered bike but it did not punish the tyre and picked the Hondas pocket when they could not stop the spin. Certain bikes are better suited to certain tracks
