Pramac Ducati MotoGP have confirmed that Aussie Jack Miller will join their team for the 2018 season.

The Queenslander will make the move from the Marc VDS Honda after Honda moved their factory support to over Cal Crutchlow from the end of the season. The new deal backed by Ducati will see Miller join the satellite squad alongside Danilo Petrucci, after reaching an agreement with the Pramac Racing team during the summer break.

The announcement:

The Octo Pramac Racing team wishes to announce that it has reached an agreement for 2018 with Jack Miller. The Australian rider, who will be directly under contract with Ducati, will defend the colours of the Tuscany-based team in the MotoGP World Championship on board a Ducati Desmosedici GP bike as team-mate to Danilo Petrucci.

Born in Townsville, Queensland, on 18th January 1995, Miller made his debut in the 125 cc World Championship in 2011 and then moved immediately into Moto3, where he finished runner-up in the 2014 season. The Australian rider then joined MotoGP the following year and, in 2016, scored his first win in the Dutch GP at Assen.
