MotoGP, Miller: "Acosta is a generational talent, the move to KTM is logical"

"Acosta had done a fantastic job the entire year. He's an amazing rookie. Switching to GasGas isn't a problem. It's just a KTM painted red. And I didn't embrace this project to leave it after just two years."

MotoGP: Miller:

Pedro Acosta switching from the Tech 3 team, with the GasGas colors, to KTM Red Bull didn't surprise Jack Miller, who's in his second season alongside Brad Binder.

"Acosta has done a fantastic job the entire year. He's an amazing rookie, and one of those generational talents. that's why the move to the factory team is logical," Miller told Crash. "But we'll have a place somewhere. I'm not too stressed. I'd just rather get better results and try to help myself a bit more."

The Aussie made his statement because, after Marquez signed with the factory Ducati and Martin moved to Aprilia, Enea Bastianini signed a pre-contract with Hervé Poncharal's team. This would reduce the IRTA president's team to one free bike, should Augusto Fernandez not be reappointed.

"I didn't marry this project to leave it after two years," Jackass stated. "We've made huge strides in this project, and I think we can continue to build this bike and be able to stop Ducati."

But would Miller accept the move from KTM to GasGas? The answer is clear.

"I firmly believe that Tech3 is no longer a satellite team. It's basically a KTM factory bike, which is red. My focus has never waned. My understanding of the bike and trying to improve it has never waned, neither has my work off the track. I'm working harder than ever. I love the guys at KTM. I think they've done a fantastic job in such a short time ... Let's wait and see."

If this is the case, Jack could end up alongside Bastianini, who took his place in Ducati in 2023.
