Not Thinking Clean Sweep Victory
Regarding the chance of a clean sweep of victory at the Mandalika WSBK, Alvaro Bautista emphasized that he didn’t think too much about it.

“I have absolutely no expectations for Sunday’s race. The most important thing for me is to keep feeling positive,” said Bautista.

Win Race 1
Alvaro Bautista won Race 1 WSBK Mandalika with a difference of 4.809 seconds from second place, Toprak Razgatlioglu.

Even though it seemed that the gap was quite large, the former MotoGP racer made sure he didn’t win easily. Because Toprak had led the way the race.

“It’s not easy to overtake Toprak. But I can control the course of the race. After that I can appear fast,” said Bautista.

“The feeling of the bike is very good, so are the tires,” he added.
