Fabrizio out to conquer Donington demons

Michel Fabrizio has once again reiterated his World Superbike Championship title aspirations as he heads straight from Misano to Donington Park for the ninth round of the season.

A seventh and eighth consecutive podium for the Italian has moved him to within seven points of second place Ben Spies in the standings and with Fabrizio having scored more than any other rider in recent rounds, the momentum is certainly with him.

Indeed, Fabrizio is determined to continue his strong run of form at Donington Park, even if he admits the circuit hasn't been particularly kind to him in the past.

However, having said similar things about Misano prior to that weekend, the Ducati Xerox rider is confident he can overcome his demons.

“Well, after the results in Misano, two more podiums, I can't help thinking about the title but I realise that to be in the running I need to secure more race wins, so that's my aim, starting from this weekend at Donington.

"The best I've done there until now is 5th but I'd always done badly at Misano too, and then that changed this year, so we'll see if I can make a similar improvement in the UK."

As I said in a previous post, as long as he's up there scoring podiums, he's got as much chance as anyone else of winning it. I'd love to see him winning the title but I'm pulling for Haga. A Ducati 1-2 would be ideal.

I know he's a bit brash, but I like the way he's riding this year. He will not be playing second fiddle to Haga, its good there are no team-orders at this time, as at one point Haga was away with it. Hope Spies wins the tile though.
