Miller, who is currently placed seventh in the riders' standings, was pleased with his performance at the German MotoGP.
 
"It was probably one of the hardest races physically I've ever done. I did the long lap right away and almost crashed because of some rocks that were in the way," Miller said. 
 
"I got in behind Martin and Di Giannantonio and managed to pass their two Ducatis pretty easily. I struggled more with the two Aprilias, but then Vinales had a technical problem, and I took fourth place.
 
"I tried then on two occasions to pass Espargaro and got past him with three laps to go when he went wide. I pushed hard today and am very happy with this result."
 
Ducati are placed at the top of the Constructors' championship standings and they are followed by Yamaha and Aprilia respectively.
