The Australian added that the plan that Marquez chooses in early stages could have a major impact on how in which the race performs.

“” I suppose it’s merely gonna come down to what pace Marc would like to run to morrow ,” said Miller, “if he would like to bolt at the beginning and manage it towards the ending or when he personally ’s gonna conserve the tyre for your previous few laps. We’ll have to play it and be ready for both scenarios.

“I feel as though we all ’t done our homework the majority of the weekend, so we’re prepared to go. I think ours is probably the second-best pace [after Marquez].

“If you examine the time sheets over the whole weekend, we’ve ever been consistent.”
