Haslam grabs the points in Spain

Kawasaki Racing Team's Leon Haslam remains fifth in the World Superbike Championship after ninth, sixth and fifth place finishes in round six at the Jerez circuit in Spain at the weekend.

“Every session we were struggling with the front traction. We ran a bit more angle and corner speed compared to some of the other Kawasaki riders – I think that has been hindering me, especially as the temperature began to rise for the two feature races on Saturday and Sunday.

“I have tried to adapt my style and played around a little bit with set-up. I felt in that final race of the weekend I had good pace and could have challenged for that third place but I get stuck behind Tom Sykes for too many laps.

“Then when I got past him I was pushing too hard, like I was before, making too many mistakes. I was just lining Rinaldi up when the red flags came out.

“Another fifth place so obviously I am not too happy about the result, but we have managed a lot of problems here this weekend.”
