Moto3 championship contender Jack Miller has launched a tirade against riders hanging around looking for a tow at the Phillip Island MotoGP round after having his fast lap ‘destroyed’ on the last corner.
The Red Bull KTM rider ended up eighth in qualifying as title rival Alex Marquez took pole and says he believes that if the behaviour is allowed to carry one, someone will get badly hurt.
“It was a real big shame. The second-last lap was an extremely fast lap, but our lap time depends on the exit from the last corner because the finish line is at the end of the straight, and someone destroyed my lap. In the last corner I got no drive like I should, and ended up eighth,” said Miller, speaking at Phillip Island.
Miller then aborted his last fast lap as he had a slew of riders following him, saying that it was a little bit of revenge.
“I don’t see the point of completing a lap to help out the idiots that destroyed my lap. It was a joke. You see the traffic coming up on the last corner, it was stupid. It’s unsafe, it’s just a joke. The stupidity is getting worse race by race, they need to try to do something before somebody really does get hurt.”
