(cafetheology.org) – World Champion Jonathan Rea decided the first round in Portimao clear for himself. From the start, the victory of the World Cup leader was not at risk. Ducati driver Chaz Davies fought his way from position nine to position two and collected 20 important points for the fight for the Vizetitel. Mark Colleague Marco Melandri took third place and lost MV-Agusta driver Leon Camier, who failed just off the podium. The overall 17th WSBK run on the course in the Algarve was at the very top at the top not an exciting matter. Rea took the two Milwaukee-Aprilias from Eugene Laverty and Lorenzo Savadori at the start and left the field with fewer corners. After the first lap, Rea's lead was 2.2 seconds. Behind the Kawasaki with the starting number 1 followed after the first round Laverty, Savadori, Davies and Melandri. Honda driver Stefan Bradl followed Xavi Fores (Barni-Ducati) on position seven and mixed well in the starting phase. But in round two the race of the German was prematurely terminated.Bradl again victims of the electronics?

"We did not have the data yet, I had a good start and a good feeling, I was aggressive on the road, but for some reason it broke out behind me and was not caught anymore, it was a strange crash as if the rear wheel "" It's very, very bad, because it went well and I was able to keep up well, but it was still a very good initial phase, which I have not been able to do for a long time, "said Bradl in the conversation with" ServusTV " so we'll have to take the positives with us, thank God there's a second chance tomorrow, "said Bradl.Rea as if on rails. At the top, Rea took his own laps and took a little pace. Davies fought his way down to position two within a few turns and sat down from the rest of the field. In the group of followers Melandri increased the pressure on Laverty and pulled in the end. Behind him, Camier took his MV Agusta into the top 5. In the Yamaha box, the mechanics and managers had to watch as Alex Lowes lost control of his R1 and threw a good result. Team colleague Michael van der Mark kept his nerves and was able to look forward to a top 5 result. The two Aprilias of Laverty and Savadori lost a lot of time in the final third of the race and were passed through. Ioda-Aprilia driver Leandro Mercado squashed and slipped from the points. At the top, the positions were related. Camier put Melandri under pressure, but could not catch the veteran. Rea celebrated the tenth season of the season and built the lead on 95 points, as Teamcollege Tom Sykes could not start the race due to injury

"The weekend has been very positive overall, and we have hardly changed the bike compared to the test, and I was able to work on it, which was positive," Rea says. "I had a very good start, I got the maximum out of the tires, and after five seconds, I wanted to manage the race, and we had something to spare even before the race." "Driving is so much fun here. I am aware that this is not normal, "emphasizes Rea, who is hard to catch up in the championship. Davies has won 20 points on Sykes and has now only 15 points to his countryman.Davies rtselt despite place two

"It was the maximum that was possible today", regrets the Ducati factory pilot. "Johnny's time was unattainable the whole weekend, controlling the race at the top, I could only fight for the podium, I was not expecting to get out of the field so quickly." "I'm happy about the podium, but I felt I could not get everything out of me and out of the bike, "Davies says. "I've adapted my style, but it did not have any impact on the lap times. We have to look at it for tomorrow's race." Melandri looked exhausted after the race. "It was really difficult, because I had little liability at the beginning," explains the Italian. "The bike was very unstable, because we had so little liability, I tried to slow down, but it made it even worse, I had the feeling not to push hard enough, but every time I pushed harder, I went to sleep an error. "The second round in Portimao will start on Sunday at 4:00 pm.
