Jack Miller will start tomorrow’s Aragon MotoGP from second after a late Q2 surge saw him better championship leader Fabio Quartararo

It was a lap the Australian needed after initially being pushed down the order by Marc Marquez, Jorge Martin and Aleix Espargaro

Speaking after qualifying, Miller added: "I’m excited. The front row is nice and is the key thing around here. The first lap around here can get a bit hectic. 

"We’ve been working really hard this weekend and in FP3/FP4 we were just on race pace. 

"I was really surprised at how well the soft is holding up on the rear. It can be an option for tomorrow. 

"This afternoon we got to try the hard front too, so I feel quietly confident coming into tomorrow’s race, but no, it was an amazing day today."

While Miller made it a Ducati 1-2, even he was unable to get close to Bagnaia who set a new lap record in the process. 

Regarding race pace and the efforts he put in during FP3 and FP4, Miller believes it’s the best he’s looked in terms of free practice ‘consistency ever’. 

"I don’t think I’ve ever done an FP3 and FP4 like that with such consistency, let alone the qualifying," said the factory Ducati man. 

"I’m excited for tomorrow and generally I can find a little bit more pace." 

The two-time race winner this season also touched on Marc Marquez who has arguably looked the best in race trim this weekend.

Miller said: "About Marc [Marquez], he’s laid it down a couple of times this weekend and he gets a bit hot in the first couple of laps of recent. 

"So, I’m happy to be out front and hopefully we can just get a clear start and try to focus on our own race."
