Mandalika WorldSBK Round Up: Steve English On Toprak's Return, Locatelli's Rise, Racing Incidents, And Harsh Words Exchanged

By Steve English | Mon, 13/03/2023 - 23:32

Two rounds into the WorldSBK season and it already feels that the back is broken on the season. After the shortest winter in memory, some team personnel said that they had just a few days off over Christmas, itís been a hectic time for the paddock. This week will be a rare chance to catch their breath but with tests in Aragon, Montmelo and Assen on the schedule for teams itís clear that thereís still plenty of work to be done!

After a hard winter, Indonesia should have been a reward for much of the paddock. With the track sitting on the stunning coastline of Lombok itís a perfect holiday destination. Good weather, nice hotels, white sand and local cuisine makes for a perfect destination. Unfortunately, that postcard image didnít quite work out for most teams. Food poisoning seemed to affect half the paddock and the weekend became a test of endurance on and off track.

Itís been a long, hard winter and this was the culmination of that for many...

Toprak wins again

Yamaha know the challenge they are facing in 2023; a horde of fast Ducatiís that can be competitive everywhere. For Toprak Razgatlioglu that means he has to be perfect week in and week out. Australia was far from that objective for the Turkish star, and with Alvaro Bautista having claimed five wins from six races it was critical that Toprak would win at least one race in Indonesia.

I'm a bot. I don't need no stinkin' signature...
