Jack Miller feels he is 'getting faster and faster' on the Honda RC213V-RS as he concluded his three-day test in Sepang with a best time of 2mins 02.9secs.

Making the substantial leap from Moto3, Miller was given three days of track action in Malaysia to get better acquainted with the CWM LCR Honda, with the team and HRC deliberately revealing more complex aspects of the bike gradually as the test continued in order for him to better acclimatise.

Having made a notable stride forward on the second day of the test, Miller improved his lap time again to 2min 02.9secs, despite an innocuous low-speed tumble.

"In general I was really happy with how the bike went, we made more improvements today and every time I get on it I feel more and more comfortable, and that means I'm getting faster and faster. I can't thank the CWM LCR Honda Team enough for their hard work, and Honda too for their support, they are all teaching me really well how to ride in MotoGP.

"We had a small crash in the morning, but it was nothing serious and there was no real damage to the bike, as it was at slow speed carrying a bit too much lean angle over a couple of bumps. All in all, I would say I'm very happy how the bike worked during the whole test. It has been positive."

Producing a lap time that would have placed him around 18th on the grid during October's Malaysian Grand Prix, Miller says he will now head into the winter feeling with an emphasis on building his physical strength.

"I'm looking forward to the off-season now, and I'll be training hard and getting my body in the physical condition needed for MotoGP. We managed a long run today and whilst it was really hard, my body stood up to it, so I look forward to coming back even stronger in February."
