North Queensland rider Jack Miller remains unconcerned about continued speculation surrounding his future which could see him shoot straight to the premier class in 2015.

There is considerable uncertainty about where Miller will end up as several teams are believed to be fighting for his services.

Hope that Miller will be pitched into the top class has been growing since Miller told Speedcafe.com that he would like to go straight to MotoGP but conceded Moto2 was the more likely route.

Miller has since been linked to the LCR Honda operation which enabled Australia’s double world champion Casey Stoner to cut his teeth in MotoGP in 2006.

“For me, there’s no extra pressure – as long as I’m riding a bike next year and it’s in this (world) championship, I’ll be happy,” Miller said.

“For me, I don’t really know where I’ll be yet, and I don’t really care as long as I’m on a motorcycle.”

“I’m so fortunate to have a manager in Aki (Ajo) in there at the moment doing the job for me; I don’t have any stress.”

The 19-year-old has become a smash hit in Europe by claiming four wins for the Red Bull KTM Ajo team which sees him lead the Moto3 world championship title race.

“You learn so much more with these guys than I have in the last two years that I’ve had in Grand Prix racing,” Miller said.

“It’s such a great environment; it’s a well-rounded crew with knowledge to teach me what they know. If I could take them with me for the rest of my career, I’d love to do it.”

Miller will be in action next when the world championship moves to the US for the Indianapolis event on August 10.
