Alex Lowes finished the Aragon WSBK round with two top-10 results, with a 7th and 4th leaving the 2013 BSB champion in fifth overall in the championship.
Both Yamaha riders failed to build on their Thailand success, despite usually being strong and competitive at the circuit. It was the fourth time that Lowes has beaten his teammate, as the next call for WSBK is van der Mark’s ho,e circuit of Assen, in The Netherlands.
“The race was really tough for me! I struggled from the start and I was simply not fast enough. I said it yesterday, but today was the same, in as much as it was a case of just doing the best I can. I understood after 2 or 3 laps that I did not have the pace to fight for the victory so my target was to finish the rest of the race in the best position possible, make no mistakes, and ride as fast as I could till the end,” said a disappointed Lowes.
“That is, obviously, what you should do in every race but normally you have a little bit in reserve for when you want to pass people. To be honest, I didn’t really worry about anyone else and just tried to do the best I could.
“I realised Michael was struggling with the front near the end of the race and I managed to get past him after a nice little battle but, like I said, it was too far from the lead. It is not too important to me to finish in front of him when we are ten seconds from the front. Hopefully, next week in Assen, Michael’s home race, we want to be battling like that for the win!”
