Miller wins French GP

Australian MotoGP rider Jack Miller made a great start to overtake polesitter Fabio Quartararo and then held him off to win the French Grand Prix yesterday. The Ducati rider started third behind Quartararo’s Yamaha teammate Maverick Vinales but surged ahead at on the 4.2-kilometer Le Mans circuit in northwestern France. Quartararo caught Miller a few laps in but later took a time penalty as heavy rain fell and then subsided. Miller clinched his second straight win of the season and third overall, beating Johann Zarco by four seconds and Quartararo by 14.5 as two French riders finished on the podium. “I was riding to the conditions. I was just counting the laps,” Miller said. “It’s absolutely amazing, I can’t thank the team enough.” Quartararo moved into the championship lead with 80 points, one ahead of Italian Francesco Bagnaia, who was 16th on the grid but finished fourth. Zarco is now third overall with 68 ahead of Miller on 64.
