Jack Miller heads to Austria and round 11 of the 2017 MotoGP World Championship with renewed confidence, after completing a positive one-day test at Brno on Monday.

Miller and his crew used the test as an opportunity to work on increasing rear grip, which has been an issue for the Australian in recent races, and to improve turning performance.

The test also allowed Miller more time to readapt to the demands of his Honda RC213V, having spent the summer break testing and racing a superbike at the Suzuki Eight-Hours, as well as evaluating two new tyres from Michelin, one front and one rear.

Miller declared himself satisfied with progress made during today's test, which he finished with a time of 1'56.634, placing him 13th on the timesheet and just over a second off the fastest time of the day.

"Today was mostly about rediscovering the feeling on the MotoGP bike and Michelin tyres after picking up some bad habits on the superbike in Suzuka!” he said. “Overall it was a really positive test here for us, with some consistent lap times and really good pace on the medium tyre, so I'm happy."

"We also spent some time working on the geometry in preparation for Austria next weekend, where late braking is critical. I have slightly less than fond memories after the track did a number on me last year, but I'm excited to go back."
