Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Honda’s Jack Miller is hoping to make it three consecutive top 10 finishes when MotoGP arrives in Texas this weekend.

The Australian is keen to repeat his run of form this weekend at Circuit of The Americas, having been forced to withdraw from the race 12 months ago following a crash in free practice.

The 22-year-old has spent the time since Argentina training hard in California and is looking forward to returning to action this weekend at COTA, a track he rates as one of his favourites and one that he is confident will suit well the characteristics of the 2017 Honda RC213V.

“Argentina was a difficult weekend, but we managed to put it together in the race and I was inside the top 10, which is my goal this season,” Miller recalled. “I was a little further back from the leaders than I’d have liked and that’s something we need to work on next time out in Austin. I feel good heading into the Texas weekend – it’s another track I really enjoy and one at which we can normally expect good things from the Honda. I’m looking forward to getting there and seeing what we can do.”

Miller has a memorable history at COTA, winning the Moto3 race there in 2014 and scoring his first MotoGP points in 14th during the 2015 season.
