Haslam bags points with three solid finishes in Portugal
Kawasaki Racing Team's Leon Haslam finished fifth in all three races of round 10 of the World Superbike Championship at the Portmiao circuit in Portugal on Saturday and Sunday.
“It was a good fight in the final race and I felt I should have got Alex Lowes, as I had more grip than him at the end.
"That said, from half distance I sort of lost the front grip on the right side, a little bit but I felt comfortable behind Johnny and Toprak.
"After about nine laps I lost my advantage with the front so I dropped off the pace quite a lot which put me in a battle with Alex.
"I was managing the front but I got in a bit of a scuffle with Van der Mark, which lost me the tow. I managed to bridge that gap quite quickly but I was suffering just to get the thing to stop.
"I tried to pass several times into turn one. We made a lot of steps for that race with the bike balance but I am a little bit disappointed because I felt again we had the pace to go with the podium guys, especially in the first half, but just a few little niggles and mistakes just knocked me out of it. My pace in the Superpole race should have got me a better result.”
