Haslam battles to top six finishes at Imola

Kawasaki Racing Team's Leon Haslam finished fifth and sixth in the two races of round five of the World Superbike championship at the Imola circuit in Italy at the weekend.

“In the Sunday morning race I had exactly the same problem as in race one on Saturday, I could not pass, could not follow the guys. When I had a gap I could go really fast.

"Compared to Jonathan we are losing under braking but on a positive note, in cornering, in the exits, and how I adapted my style in other areas, we made really good steps.

"Jonathan is very good here at Imola and I knew it was going to be a tough weekend trying to adapt my style with the things I have struggled with, but it was a lot harder than I expected. We will take a fifth and a sixth and move on to Jerez next month.”
