Haslam takes three fifth places in Thailand round

Kawasaki Racing Team's Leon Haslam finished fifth in all three races of the second round of the World Superbike Championship at the Chang International Circuit, Thailand on Saturday and Sunday.

"Being fifth all weekend isn’t what I’m looking for but the feeling improved on Sunday and I felt more consistent in the final race. We were running the bigger brake discs, which I didn’t have the best of feelings with this weekend, but in general we made a big step with the bike.

"I can say now that I have been suffering with a trapped nerve in my back, which flared up just before I came here, and I have had to take painkilling injections all weekend. I struggled a lot this weekend and I am glad it is over in some ways.

"I need some rest and then we can start again in Aragon. I had not been to Chang for four years. It was always going to be tough with just two 50-minute practice sessions and going straight into it so to get three fifth places is something I had to accept and be reasonably happy with.”
