Australian Jack Miller has joined the ranks of MotoGP riders who wanted more consistent stewardship decisions after the first MotoGP 2023 race. The KTM rider said that we saw some crashes in Portimao as a result of race one jitters, but he also believes that the incident between Marco Marquez and Miguel Oliveira was greatly exaggerated.
"This was expected, because we didn't race for four months and everyone wanted to prove themselves," believes the Australian. "It was clear that there would be a lot of tension in the air and the boys would drive to the maximum. That's how it is, that's how this sport is. Unfortunately, accidents are part of this sport. When an accident occurs, the perpetrator must bear the consequences. But we need constant decisions. Please be consistent. Look at last year's misadventures of Nakagami or Alex with me. There were heavy collisions. But since it was Marquez this time, everyone wants to bash him and complain just because it was Marc.
Far from defending him, he made a mistake and he knows full well what he did. But there is far too much talk about it. Everyone wants to say, "he hit me too". This is racing. But of course there is a limit. But it's hard to know where to draw the line, because it's constantly moving."
Miller agreed with Fabio Quartararo, who said stewards should penalize a rider who crashes another rider, but disagreed with anyone being banned from the race. "I don't agree with that, because it is not a sporting act to immediately ban someone from participating in a race."
