MRI scan to MotoGP runner up in 12 hours for Miller at Red Bull Ring

Pramac Ducati's Jack Miller went from a session in an MRI scanner on Sunday morning in Austria to standing on the MotoGP podium less than 12 hours later.

Miller crashed during free practice three at the Red Bull Ring and was in so much pain on raceday, he was taken to hospital for an MRI on his shoulder as it felt like he was being stabbed.

With help from the Clinica Mobile, Miller was able to suck up the pain and take his first-ever MotoGP runner-up spot and third in the title chase.


"Qualifying, I knew it was going to bloody hurt and I had to put a stick between my teeth and just go for it. Completely winging it, basically. I was able to get one lap in that was good enough for the second row and I was done, I had nothing," said Miller.

"Saturday night, I was up a fair bit of the night icing and using heat on my shoulder and doing rotations and cycles with it, and managed to get a little bit of sleep.

Sunday, I was at a nearby hospital at 7am to have an MRI, literally rushed in and rushed out. I can't thank them and the doctors, the Clinica Mobile at the circuit, enough. I was sore but compared to where I was before that, I felt pretty great.

'The crash itself wasn't even that big - I've had plenty of bigger ones, believe me – but this one for whatever reason bit me. I walked away fine, but as soon as I went back out for FP4, it felt like someone was sticking a knife in my back and I knew there was something really wrong.

"So if you'd told me I'd be fighting for the win in the final corner the next day, I wouldn't have believed you. Absolutely no way."
