Jack Miller is one of the hot topics in this year’s silly MotoGP season, and Sky Sports Italia reports that Queenslander is set to move to KTM alongside other Australian Remy Gardner.
After the departure of Suzuki, the stupid season of MotoGP went into overdrive with factory driver Ducati Miller right in the middle and was associated with the transition to the KTM Tech3 satellite.
Spaniards Alex Rince and 2020 MotoGP champion Joan Mir are now looking for rides and mean there will likely be two riders who will be left without seats by 2023, Miller doesn’t want to be one of them.
Miller’s teammate Francesco Bagnay has already been blocked for two years after his high-profile end to the 2021 season, when he took pole in all of his last six races, winning four.
This leaves one spot on the factory team, while Miller has performed well in recent rounds, two costly accidents in the first five races have done him no help.
Ducati companion Aeneas Bastiani has won three of the first seven races with Gresini Racing and is a true contender for the championship, now he seems to be the favorite in the chair.
Pramac Ducati driver Jorge Martin was also a contender, however he failed to score in five of seven races this year, his chances of a factory trip in 2023 are diminishing.
By this time, Miller was expected to return to Pramac Ducati, where he spent three years before joining the factory team, however Sky Italia is confident that Miller will be wearing orange leather in 2023.
Sky Sport Italia noted that KTM has a significant figure who has worked with the three-time MotoGP race winner on Pramac in the past.
Francesco Guidotti was recently hired as the team manager of the KTM Factory team, making a shock to replace Mike Leitner.
Brad Binder is already blocked for 2023, although his teammate Miguel Oliveira is unlikely to sign it again.
This means that Miller would move to the KTM Tech3 satellite team.
Although there are only seven races in his MotoGP career, it was reported that Spaniard Raul Fernandez will leave the KTM Tech3 team at the end of the season.
It is expected that his teammate Gardner will re-sign with him, which allowed Miller to become an Australian member of the Tech3 KTM team next year.
It all comes after Ducati Corse sporting director Paolo Chabatti said that “the future of Bastianini and Martin will become clear in June”.
