Jack Miller stole the show at the German Grand Prix on Sunday and made a fan’s dream come true with a beautiful gesture.
Australian MotoGP finished third at the Sachsenring behind reigning World Champion Fabio Quartaro and Johann Zarco, but it was what Miller did after grabbing the checkered flag that will live long in a spectator’s memory.
As the cameras focused on the crowd for the race, they captured a fan holding a sign saying, “Jack, want to trade gloves for a T-shirt?”

The broadcast then went to Miller in his box, as the Townsville-born rider smiled at the camera and waved a glove.
After the race, as the riders headed for the pit lane, Miller left the track and made a detour to find the fan.
After stopping for the part where the spectator was sitting, he pretended to hold up a sign before handing his gauntlet to the incredulous fan who could barely contain his joy.

Miller’s third place finish on Sunday was his third podium finish of the season and came at the end of a grueling race in scorching conditions.
“It was probably one of the most physically demanding races I’ve ever driven,” the Queenslander said after the race.
By finishing third in Germany, Miller is level with Ducati teammate Francesco Bagnaia, who crashed on Sunday, in sixth place in the World Riders’ Championship with 81 points.
Quartaro, the reigning world champion, leads the standings with 172 points, Alex Espargaro 34 and Zarco 27 points ahead.

Miller is still looking for his first win of the season after finishing top of the podium in back-to-back races last year when he triumphed in the Spanish and French GP.
The Australian finished fourth overall, with Bagnaia second behind eventual world champion Quartaro.
However, the Ducati duo have struggled this season with both riders dropping out in the opening race in Qatar and Miller who failed to finish in Portugal. Bagnaia’s DNF in Germany on Sunday, meanwhile, was his fourth of the season and second in a row after being eliminated at the Catalan GP earlier this month.
