MotoGP: Miller tops damp Practice 1 from Zarco at Le Mans

A slick tire gamble from Jack Miller (Ducati Lenovo Team) on a drying track saw the Australian sit comfortably clear of the competition in FP1 at the SHARK Grand Prix de France.

His 1:38.007 time was 1.481s quicker than second place Johann Zarco (Pramac Racing).

Jack Miller – 1.48s clear

Despite an earlier bike issue, Joan Mir (Team Suzuki Ecstar) took P3 in a frantic opening MotoGP session of the weekend.

Behind the leading trio was a pair of Repsol Honda Team riders: Pol Espargaro leading Marc Marquez by 0.006s.
