Round Seven – Misano – Sunday Report


After scoring victory in the Sunday morning Superpole Race Alvaro Bautista took the holeshot into Turn 1 for Sunday afternoon’s Race Two ahead of a Kawasaki triumvirate of Leon Haslam, Jonathan Rea and Toprak Razgatlioglu.

Bautista then crashed out of the lead, losing the front at turn four on the second lap. That left Leon Haslam in the lead ahead of team-mate Rea, whilst Razgatlioglu was third ahead of Marco Melandri (GRT Yamaha WorldSBK) and Alex Lowes (Pata Yamaha WorldSBK Team). Bautista re-joined at the back of the field.

With 18 laps to go Razgatlioglu who put a move on Rea at Turn 4, before leading at Turn 1 a lap later, ahead of Leon Haslam. At Turn 14 on the same lap, Rea lunged ahead of Haslam, as the BSB Champ started struggling to maintain pace.

Haslam then suffered a collision with Marco Melandri as the Italian tried an audacious pass into Turn 2. Both stayed upright but it allowed Razgatlioglu and Rea to break away.

With 12 laps left to go, the race was far from decided, with two separate battles: Razgatlioglu defended at the front from Jonathan Rea, whilst Leon Haslam held on to third ahead of Marco Melandri, as Alex Lowes began to claw time back on the battling duo ahead of him.

Three laps to go and it was another disaster for the GRT Yamaha squad, as Marco Melandri crashed at Turn 8, after his team-mate Cortese has already crashed out earlier.

A lap later Rea made a mistake at Turn 10, momentarily letting Razgatlioglu to sneak away.

The final four laps was when Jonathan Rea made his move out front, taking the lead at Turn 1. It was a heart-in-mouth moment for Razgatlioglu at Turn 4 however, as he came within millimetres of hitting the rear of Rea, with his rear wheel in the air.

The fight was far from done, as the 22-year-old Turkish rider stayed glued to the rear end of Rea as the final lap beckoned, setting up a head-to-head between the young challenger and the four-time WorldSBK Champion.

Razgatlioglu put a move on Rea but then ran wide, with Rea slicing back ahead and the gloves were really off but the Northern Irishman had the race-craft to keep the young Turk at bay and went on to take his 75th WorldSBK win and the mantle as highest point-scorer of all time.

Third place went to Leon Haslam, ahead of Lowes and Michael Ruben Rinaldi.

Sixth went to Tom Sykes ahead of Chaz Davies, whilst Michele Pirro (BARNI Racing Team), Lorenzo Zanetti (Team Goeleven) and Jordi Torres (Team Pedercini Racing) completed the top ten, in a frantic, feisty end to Race 2.

The championship gap is down to 16-points between Bautista and Rea at the top, whilst Toprak Razgatlioglu moved into the top Independent slot in the championship, with the best ride of his WorldSBK career.


Jonathan Rea

“Winning two races at Misano was good for us, especially the two important races. Unfortunately in the Superpole Race today I made a big mistake in turn ten, when I lost the front. But I restarted to finish fifth which was all important for the weekend. Race Two today was a tough one because the temperature was hot. I was very unsure of the pace. I felt like it was slow but I did not want to push any faster. I saw Alvaro go down very early in the race and the conditions out there were very tough, especially for the front tyre. The rear was just not digging in and going forward, it was just spinning so much – but we won, which was the main thing. It was a super-nice day for Kawasaki because we put three bikes on the Race Two podium. Team Suzuka! Donington next and we will go to every track with an open mentality.”

Leon Haslam

“The third place in the sprint race today was just a matter of staying on and bridging the gap to Tom Sykes, and I managed to pass him on the last lap. This afternoon I was struggling from lap one and did not have much front feeling, but I think everybody was in the same position. When Johnny and Toprak came past I felt I could have pushed to go with them but I had already risked too much so I had to run my own race. Alex was then behind me and I did not want to give up the podium, so I fought a little bit at the end. We have made some good steps from the Jerez test but there are little things we are still finding out.”

Toprak Razgatlioglu

“For me, Race Two was my best race. In the short race I did not like the feel because yesterday I had a big crash and we tried the second bike. I did not have a good feeling in the race because the rear was sliding too much. I knew Race Two was important because I started from fourth position and I needed to stay with the front group. In the race I followed Johnny and Leon after Bautista crashed and I felt the bike was good, especially under had braking. I pushed in all laps and made a gap but I saw Johnny was coming. In the last lap I tried to get to the front again but it was not easy. After my crash yesterday this podium was for my crew who did a good job, and we tried a small set-up change that worked. Imola, Jerez and here, on the podium.”

Álvaro Bautista

“I’m happy but at the same time very angry with myself about the results of today’s two races. It went well in the morning’s Superpole Race because we were on really top form. After a good start I immediately took the lead, and set the pace right down to the chequered flag. In Race 2 it was very hot and the track didn’t have as much grip. On lap 2, I didn’t do anything strange at Turn 4, but just lost the front and crashed. Pity because our potential was obviously to fight for the win. Maybe the error came about because I was too confident after the win in the Superpole Race, but in any case we must have a good look at the data because I’ve made two similar mistakes in the last two races, and that’s not good. We have to understand why so as not to repeat the same mistakes and lose more points.”

Chaz Davies

“It has been a difficult Sunday for me. I lost the front in the Superpole Race in Turn 14, and as a result didn’t get the chance to start in the top 9 for Race 2. Then we made some changes for Race 2, but they didn’t give us the step we needed. It was a critical racetrack today because grip was low, but it was the same for everyone. I just felt like I’ve got no adaptability with the bike, even though I tried to change my style during the race. It’s a bit frustrating to finish races like that, because I know we can do better than that. We just need to learn from the information and work hard in the areas that are letting us down at the moment.”

Tom Sykes

“It was a little bit unfortunate. I honestly feel that we had three podiums in reach. We were third in the sprint race until the last lap and had a issue which allowed Leon Haslam to come close and then unfortunately we retired. That didnt help the cause as this meant that I started the last big race from the fourth row which cost me some time in the first few laps. The whole BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team did a great job. I feel if we had started from the front row we could have gone away, kept our rhythm and I definitely feel that this would have allowed another podium position. So a little bit of a shame but on the plus side we’ve had a podium, we finished second this weekend with the all-new BMW S 1000 RR, we are showing its potential. Even in this last race we had very good consistency. We will build on this.”

Markus Reiterberger

“Today was better than yesterday, although my start was not so good in the Superpole race and a mistake cost me valuable time. The result was that I had to settle for 14th on the grid in race two. However, I made a good start and was able to hold on to 12th and later 11th place for the whole race. I did my best, did not make any mistakes, and brought the BMW S 1000 RR home safe and sound. The track conditions were more difficult today. It was very hot and I have never known there be so little grip. It was tough for everyone, but we coped well. We have taken a small step forward, which gives us more confidence. We will continue to work hard to improve. So a big thank you to the whole team.”

Alex Lowes

“The weekend has been a pretty good one overall, marred only by the mistake yesterday when I was trying to win Race 1. I got caught out by new standing water, which was a bit unexpected at that point in the race, but I’ll learn from it. This morning was good, and I was expecting to be stronger this afternoon, but we struggled a bit with acceleration as the temperature rose and grip went down. We’d made some changes to the bike compared to Friday, but the worsening track condition made it difficult to assess whether these were an improvement or not. It was tough for everyone in the race today. I tried to pass Haslam a few times, but I didn’t feel comfortable on the front and couldn’t make the passes stick, so I had to settle for fourth in the end. Now it’s off to Donington, my home track, after a two-day test in Suzuka – I’m looking forward to it!”

Sandro Cortese

“First of all, I’m very sorry for the team and my crew, as they did a fantastic job this weekend and it’s a shame we leave here with just one point after today, because a lot more was possible, including a first WorldSBK podium finish. The positive thing is that we made a big step since Jerez and I was able to run with the front group, which was our goal for this weekend. In the end I had two crashes where I lost the front and both times I didn’t feel I was on the limit but, once again, I learned a lot this weekend. A big shame and a big disappointment because everyone gave their all this weekend. But that’s racing; you have ups and you have downs. Now I am looking forward to working hard to be ready for Donington.”

Marco Melandri

“Actually, it was a good weekend for me, even if I missed the result in Race 2 today. In the sprint race the bike felt much better for me; we knew it was going to be hard to finish top nine from 19th on the grid but, in the end, I had a little bit of luck and finished sixth. In Race 2 I got a good start, but I wasn’t going to accept to finish fourth, so I was pushing hard to pass Haslam, which wasn’t easy. Unfortunately, I made a small mistake and went down. I’m sorry for the team and for Yamaha because they’ve been working so hard and they never gave up, even after difficult days. That makes me more motivated than ever for the next round in Donington, a track that will suit the Yamaha well.”

Loris Baz

“Overall, it’s been a good weekend, with the fourth place yesterday putting a smile on people’s faces in the team. The sprint race was tough today, as I was expecting a good feeling after the warm-up, but in the race the feeling was gone and I felt close to crashing on the front in every corner. We made a change for Race 2, but that just moved the problem from the front to the rear and I was spinning up everywhere. It’s the first time I’ve ever had more grip on the last lap than the first! I finished 12th, picked up some points and continued the learning process. At the moment, the most important thing for us is to finish every race, collect the data and increase our understanding of the bike and the tyres. Now we head to Donington, where we will try to make another step.”

Ryuichi Kiyonari

“This Misano round has been tough for me because I could not improve my feeling with the bike, especially with the front, and the fluctuating conditions over the weekend did not help the situation. Having said that, it is me who has to adapt to this kind of tricky conditions and for this reason I wish to apologize for the team for a less than satisfactory weekend”.

Yuki Takahashi

“We made quite a good start in the Superpole race and the decision to use the Pirelli soft tyre was a good one, as it worked well during the race and we were able to lap consistently enough until the end. We also changed something in terms of set-up, looking for more grip, and I think we saw a little improvement. We continued in that direction also for Race 2, adjusting the bike’s settings a bit, and I was happy with my feeling on the bike. We know it is not enough yet of course, but we worked very hard and I hope this work will be useful for the future. I also wish to say sorry to the team for the race 2 crash, as I made a mistake in braking, and I thank everyone for their support and hard work this weekend.”

The Pata Riviera di Rimini Round played host to the seventh WorldSSP race of 2019, a frantic 20-lap encounter which saw the WorldSSP championship pendulum continue to swing and add drama to the title race. Randy Krummenacher (BARDAHL Evan Bros. WorldSSP Team) took the win ahead teammate Federico Caricasulo, after a thrilling final lap.

Starting from pole position, it was Lucas Mahias who took the lead into Turn 1, whilst Jules Cluzel (GMT94 YAMAHA) surged through but almost tagged his fellow countryman, allowing Federico Caricasulo and Randy Krummenacher to take advantage. With the race settling into a pattern, Mahias had the advantage ahead of the BARDAHL Evan Bros. WorldSSP Team riders, with Jules Cluzel and Raffaele De Rosa (MV AGUSTA Reparto Corse) in fourth and fifth respectively.

Caricasulo and Krummenacher battled at the start of the second lap, with the Swiss rider forcing his way into second at Turn 4. A lap later, the pair were ahead of Lucas Mahias, as the familiar sight of the Swiss and the Italian out front, with Cluzel leading the charge to Mahias for the final podium place.

The lead order changed numerous times over the next few laps, with Isaac Viñales (Kallio Racing) in the leading group until a crash at Turn 1 on Lap 4, whilst Raffaele De Rosa crashed a lap later at Turn 6. Caricasulo took the lead at Turn 10, with Krummenacher second and Mahias holding off Cluzel and Hikari Okubo (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing).

Krummenacher took the lead back at Turn 1 at the start of Lap 9, leading for five laps whilst the battle simmered down, and everyone held their own stations, evaluating their strengths and weaknesses. It was a mistake on Lap 14 that allowed his teammate Caricasulo back ahead at Turn 10, with the Italian taking the lead provoking the cheers of the home crowd. Two laps later though, Krummenacher took the lead back, moving Caricasulo out wide at Turn 4.

In the final three laps, the gloves were off and Krummenacher had the advantage from his teammate, whilst 2017 WorldSSP Champion Mahias latched onto the back of the battling Yamaha duo. Behind them, a big gap back to Cluzel and Okubo, with the Frenchman starting to drop the Japanese rider. Completing the top six was wildcard Lorenzo Gabellini (GOMMA Racing), putting in an exceptional ride.

On the final lap, it was a lunge at Turn 1 from Federico Caricasulo that nearly took himself and his teammate out. The Italian barged ahead at Turn 8, pushing his teammate out wide but there was still more to come with half-a-lap to go. A desperate move from Krummenacher at Turn 14 pushed his way through, with Caricasulo cutting back to try and get the drive on the exit of the corner. The two touched on the run to Turn 15, before Krummenacher blocked the inside line at Turn 16, doing enough to secure the win! Mahias charged late on but it was Caricasulo who took second ahead of the Frenchman who completed the podium – his first of the year.

Fourth position went to Jules Cluzel ahead of Hikari Okubo – making it two Puccetti Racing Kawasakis inside the top five. Gabellini took sixth, ahead of Hannes Soomer (MPM WILSport Racedays) who took his joint-best result of his career. Wildcard Kevin Manfredi (Team Rosso e Nero) was eighth, whilst Thomas Gradinger (Kallio Racing) and Massimo Roccoli (Team Rosso Corsa) completed the top ten.

The championship lead is now 22 points for Krummenacher, as he takes the advantage with five races to go in 2019.

World Supersport 300

A thrilling WorldSSP300 race saw numerous accidents and the usual fairing-bashing action across the 13-lap encounter. In the end however, it was a fourth career win for Ana Carrasco (Kawasaki Provec WorldSSP300), who held her nerve in a titanic six-rider scrap to move back into title contention.

On lap one of the WorldSSP300 race, it was carnage throughout as crashes were littered all the way around the Misano World Circuit “Marco Simoncelli” in a chaotic sequence of events. Turn 5 claimed Nick Kalinin (Nutec – RT Motorsports by SKM – Kawasaki), which then brought down Filippo Rovelli (Kawasaki ParkinGO Team), Jacopo Facco (Semakin Di Depan Biblion Motoxracing), Tom Bramich (Carl Cox-RT Motorsports by SKM-Kawasaki) and Daniel Blin (Terra e Moto).

Further round the lap at Turn 13, it was Hugo De Cancellis (Team Trasimeno Yamaha), Robert Schotman (Kawasaki MOTOPORT) and Jan-Ole Jahnig (Freudenberg KTM Junior Team) who all crashed. Then at Turn 14, Koen Meuffels (Freudenberg KTM WorldSSP Team) and Bruno Ieraci (Kawasaki GP Project) who fell.

Meanwhile, from the riders who were still upright, Ana Carrasco (Kawasaki Provec WorldSSP300) was the race leader, with the likes of Manuel Gonzalez (Kawasaki ParkinGO Team), Galang Hendra Pratama (Semakin Di Depan Biblion Motoxracing), Andy Verdoïa (BCD Yamaha MS Racing) and Victor Steeman (Freudenberg KTM Junior Team) all in the mix. Emanuele Vocino (GRADARACorse) was in sixth and closing up.

It was a far from ideal race for Scott Deroue on the sole-surviving Kawasaki MOTOPORT machine, as the Dutchman was fighting through into seventh, where he rode a lonesome race, not being part of any large groups.

It was a frantic final few laps as the race lead swapped and changed, eventually seeing Ana Carrasco fight her way back to the lead and pull out an advantage throughout the last lap. Gonzalez and Hendra Pratama got ahead of Steeman into Turn 8 as they began to chase down the reigning WorldSSP300 Champion. However, Hendra Pratama got a strong slipstream down the back straight and through Turn 12, he took second place. Vocino tried to get ahead of Steeman at Turn 14 but the Dutch rider fought back.

Into the final corner, Carrasco had enough in hand to take the win, but Gonzalez bashed his way through ahead of Hendra Pratama, forcing him off the circuit and therefore costing the Indonesian a podium, as Andy Verdoïa came through for third.

Steeman was fifth behind Hendra Pratama, whilst Vocino was a hearty sixth. Scott Deroue could only manage seventh, ahead of 2018 WorldSSP300 Misano winner Manuel Bastianelli (Prodina IRCOS Kawasaki), Kevin Sabatucci (Team Trasimeno Yamaha) and Ferran Hernandez Moyano (BCD Yamaha MS Racing).

Tom Edwards finished the race in 24th position while Tom Bramich failed to convert a good qualifying performance after crashing out of the race early on in the encounter. Jack Hyde did not qualify for the race.

Carrasco now moves into joint-second in the championship with Scott Deroue, whilst Manuel Gonzalez continues as the championship leader.

Ana Carrasco

“I am very happy to have taken my first victory of the season. I think we have worked very well all weekend and this has allowed me to keep a very good pace in the race. I pushed hard from the beginning, but it was difficult because it was very hot and had little grip in some places. But I really wanted to win so I pushed as much as possible! I climbed many positions in the championship and I’m second overall now. Donington Park comes along now and I like the layout a lot. As always, thanks a lot to Kawasaki and Provec for giving me a super Ninja 400 to win on!”

“A good race for the championship. We knew we have to take podiums in all races to maintain enough points for the leading championship position but the race was very calm because the leading group was small. I tried to be second in the last lap but the KTM overtook me and then tried to push as much as possible to take Ana. But I have to be happy for a second place finish, as it is a good result for the championship. Thanks to all for the good work the team does through all the sessions. We have to continue like this.”
