"I was closer to the asphalt than to continue on the bike"

Álvaro Bautista took the win in Thailand, but acknowledges that he was "lucky" after a touch with Rea on lap 2 of the race.

"It was a very different race from Australia, much harder and hot", began explaining Alvaro Bautista after achieving his fourth consecutive victory in the World Superbike. The event in Thailand served to demonstrate that Ducati's Spaniard is very serious about the title, something that his maximum rival, Jonathan Rea, already assumes: "There is nothing to do, I can only have fun", assured The Kawasaki Briton in the antepodio.

However, Bautista acknowledged that he saw himself more on the ground than beating Buriram's career. "I was lucky not to fall after touching me Rhea because it was closer to the asphalt than to continue on the bike. Fortunately it has not happened," acknowledged the Talavera de la Reina.

Pasado the fright, came the attack. "I did not have the best feelings today with the bike, but I was able to set my pace, recover lost time, pass Jonathan and get away, I'm happy with the victory, but I hope we can improve the feeling tomorrow", finished español 34 years old who is now leader with 18 points ahead of Rea.
