Jack Miller to miss Ducati MotoGP launch after COVID-19 confirmation

Australian MotoGP racer Jack Miller is grounded in Australia and unable to join the Ducati team launch due to a positive COVID-19 result

ONE of the most colourful characters in the MotoGP paddock is missing his team's 2022 team launch after a positive COVID-19 result prevents Jack Miller from traveling.

The news comes from Miller himself, who confirmed on his Twitter account that he will be missing the team's launch in Italy. He did though go on to confirm that he is in good health, with no symptoms to speak of. It also seems that the positive COVID result will not harm his preparations for 2022, as the three-time MotoGP race winner confirmed that training and preparations are still underway.

One worry for the likeable Aussie is his participation in the upcoming Sepang test. Scheduled for February 5 and 6, the clock is ticking, and it only leaves a small window after his ten-day isolation is complete – and that also relies on him testing negative after that time.

Indeed should Miller miss the Sepang test, his first taste of the 2022 factory Ducati will come the following week at the Mandalika circuit in Indonesia.
