(cafetheology.org) – Kawasaki did not win at the end of the race on the Lausitzring, but title defender Jonathan Rea was able to further extend the lead in the driver's ranking. With four still outstanding events, the two-time world champion is no longer to be expected. 70 points lie between him and team colleague Tom Sykes after the Lausitzring weekend. Two second places are a very good record for Rea. The Lausitzring is not one of the favorite courses of the British, which is glad if in the future no longer is driven in the Niederlausitz. Against Ducati driver Chaz Davies, Rea was unimpressive in both races. With a view to the World Cup, the trip to Germany has paid off. "It was a good start," he said, "but I think it's a good start," he said Driving the bike very hard, I mastered it, despite the many ground shafts, "Rea comments on the second run.

In the end, Tom Sykes was hard on the group

At the top Davies left. From behind, Marco Melandri pressed and did not let himself be shaken. But Rea controlled the small lead and focused on making no mistakes. "When the grip on the tire edge subsided, it was almost impossible to hold on to the front, I am satisfied with the result, the bike never worked very well here, and on Friday we had difficulties "We have scored 40 points on the Lausitzring, which makes me happy," said Rea. For Sykes, the second round was a big disappointment. After a wild start, the Briton lost the connection to the top 3 and fought in the pursuer group. "In this race, it was not going as planned, I had a good start, but touched the rear of Savadori in turn one, so I lost what I got through the good start," the Kawasaki pilot is annoyed. " By the time I had a free ride, my usual feeling returned, before I had the confidence to overtake other drivers on the brake, "Sykes says. "It was a difficult fight and I'm disappointed that I did not have the confidence to overtake in the hard braking zones." "I wanted to go to the podium but unfortunately we could not get the maximum There are still four race weekends before us, "promises Sykes his fans. In the driver evaluation, the world champion of 2013 is coming under increasing pressure. Davies won many points in Germany and has only 35 points behind the World Cup.
