Jack Miller became the first of three new MotoGP race winners this season, and the most surprising of the nine different winners, by storming to the first premier-class victory by a satellite rider since 2006 at a wet Assen.

Moving from LCR to Marc VDS, Miller's 2016 preparations had been rocked by a broken leg in a motocross training incident. A big Austin highside then left him with additional foot injuries, while his RC213V was hobbled by early issues adapting to the new single ECU software.

All of which meant the exuberant Aussie had scored just seven points prior to his historic ride in Holland. Just as he was returning to full fitness, Miller's season was again interrupted by injuries, in Austria, ultimately forcing him out of four more rounds.

A proven threat whenever conditions were tricky (his best three results were on a wet or drying track) Miller struggled for front-end feel in the dry - but felt immediately comfortable after being given a revised chassis, as used by Cal Crutchlow… once the season had ended.

About the vote:
Rather than repeat the riders' championship standings, Crash.net's MotoGP Star of the Year poll (which began in 2008) expects viewers to take into account factors such as machinery, performance relative to a team-mate, riding style, experience, injuries, progress and personality as much as race results.

Over 70,000 votes were cast for the 2016 poll, with viewers awarding each of this year's participants with a mark out of ten. The average score for each rider was then used to compile the final results.

Wasn't it 4 new winners in Motogp this season and not 3. Andrea Iannone Cal Crutchlow Jack Miller and Maverick Vinales Dani had a really poor season compared to his previous challenges so it surprises me Dani made in the top 10. IMO
