Three wins to finish the season

Five-time world champion since the event at Magny-Cours, Jonathan Rea ended his season in Qatar with a new hat-trick.

Insatiable, Jonathan Rea completed his triumphal season by winning in the last three championship races held on the Losail circuit in Qatar. The hat-trick, the second this year after Donington, allows the Kawasaki rider to make his stats even better. The five-time Superbike World Champion now has 88 victories on his track record. “I’m really happy to finish the season with a hat-trick,” said Rea. “This year has been very special. I didn’t expect to suffer so much at the start of the season; I had to wait for the fifth event to win my first race. But we never let anything go. We worked to make the bike better and demonstrated on the last races that top speed is not everything. I am proud of what we achieved this year.” For his last appearance with Team Kawasaki, Leon Haslam tied for fifth place before finishing ninth in his last race with the ZX-RR. “I was hoping to do a little better,” he explained. “The season was harder than expected, I had difficulty all year in stopping the bike during the braking phases. I wasn’t able to make the progress I should have. But I had some good races, such as in Australia, Aragon and Misano. I’m also happy to have won the Suzuka Eight Hours with Jonathan.” Best independent rider this season, Toprak Razgatlioglu failed to make it back to the podium in Qatar. Eleventh in the first race, he finished the Superpole sprint in fourth place and finished fifth in the final leg. In Supersport, Lucas Mahias ended his season with another victory, the second after Magny-Cours. A success obtained though hard work by the Kawasaki rider who suffered from stomach pains at the start. Hikari Okubo crossed the finish line of the Losail circuit in eighth place.

The Championship

Despite a difficult start to the season, Jonathan Rea once again crushed the competition this year. With 17 victories, the now five-time Superbike World Champion finished with 663 points, 165 points more than his first runner-up, Alvaro Bautista. Leon Haslam ranked seventh with 281 points while Toprak Razgatlioglu, the best independent rider, finished the season in fifth place with 315 points. In Supersport, Lucas Mahias, winner of two of the last three races, finished fourth in the world championship with 168 points. Fifth, Hikari Okubo finished the year with 105 points.
