Davies: We can still improve

Aruba Ducati rider Chaz Davies says his team must remain focused after winning Race 1 on Saturday of the World Superbike championship at Aragon.

The Welsh rider battled his way from fourth on the grid for the victory. The result is the first non-Kawasaki bike to finish on top of the rostrum this season.

In an interview afterwards, Davies said he was very happy with the power his Ducati showed.

“In the beginning, it wasn’t easy to fight in the group, but I gradually managed to climb back through the field and take the lead,” said Davies.

“Then, I simply tried to establish my own rhythm, progressively building a gap. I’m very happy, we’ve made a clear step forward in terms of power, for which I want to thank Ducati for the constant efforts to push development forward.”

Davies is happy with his 10th career WSBK win and is hoping to repeat the feat in Sunday’s Race 2.

“We’ve been close to winning a few times already this year, and now we need to stay on this course,” he added.

“We can still improve before Race Two tomorrow.”
