MotoGP Austria: Miller 'thrown to the moon' by highside

"The rear went around, got some grip and threw me to the moon with a highside" - Jack Miller.
Jack Miller was fortunate to escape injury was he was 'thrown to the moon' by a highside during qualifying for the Austrian MotoGP.

The Assen winner, who has only just regain full fitness after pre-season ankles injuries, was launched from his Marc VDS Honda at Turn 4.

"The first sector was good but I threw it away at turn four. I lost the front on entry and then the rear went around, got some grip and threw me to the moon with a highside," he said.

"I was really lucky to walk away from that one and then get back out for a qualifying lap. My second bike had 17 laps on the front tyre so that wasn't ideal for a fast time. But I'm feeling good about the race, I think I have the pace to be coming on strong at the end."

The Australian will start Sunday's race from 20th place.
