Alvaro Bautista brings home another sensational hat-trick, with which he sets a new Superbike record of 14 wins out of 15 races. Seen in the first lap Toprak Razgatlioglu and Michael Ruben Rinaldi had undermined his first position and tried to make life difficult for him, the Spaniard saw fit to immediately give the race a push and in a few laps he brought his advantage over his two pursuers to 2.5 seconds.
Once he had secured his first position, Alvaro maintained his usual incredible pace which once again led him to cross the finish line in complete tranquility with over eight seconds ahead of Toprak, who had to deal with Rinaldi until the sixteenth lapwhen the Italian saw fit to go wide in the first corner, touching the rear Pirelli of the Turk, and ending his race in the escape route.
From then on Razgatlioglu only had to manage his advantage over third classified Axel Bassani, good at repelling the initial assaults of the two official Kawasakis of Jonathan Rea and Alex Lowes who then crashed on the eighth lap.
The young Venetian took his first podium of the season with almost two seconds ahead of the six-time world champion. Behind them he concluded a constant Xavi Vierge, who preceded Andrea Locatelli. The Bergamo native closes a very difficult weekend in sixth place, from which both he and his supporters certainly expected something more.
Danilo Petrucci quickly recovered from the bad fall in the Superpole Race (abrasion to his right leg and slight contusions) and stoically finished in seventh place, ahead of the first of the BMW riders, the American Garrett Gerloff.
Ninth position for Phillip Oettl who ruled the two GRT Yamaha riders Remy Gardner and Dominique Aegerter. Behind the Swiss we find a train with three M1000RR driven respectively by Loris Baz, Tom Sykes and Scott Redding. Bring home a Syahrinh point with the Honda of Team MIE Petronias. In addition to the aforementioned Lowes and Rinaldi, Bradley Ray, Lorenzo Baldassarri, who crashed in the final turn 3, Luca Vitali, the Japanese Mizuno and Tito Rabat who broke the chain on the first lap, also did not cross the finish line.
