Max Biaggi insists there are 'still a lot of points at stake' as his hopes of wrapping up the 2010 World Superbike Championship received a major boost at Brno.
With four wins on the trot helping him first overhaul Leon Haslam at Miller Motorsports Park before pulling 37 points clear at Misano, Biaggi has now gapped his rival to 68 points after a win and second place finish in the Czech Republic.
Despite this, the Aprilia Alitalia rider is playing down title talk, pointing out there are still four rounds, eight races and a maximum of 200 points still to play for.
“The guys [Aprilia] support me and believe in my indications, and this is confirmed by our results,” he said. “There are still a lot of points at stake, so I won't look back and I'll continue to stay focused race after race. That is the winning philosophy."
A tenth career win at Brno for the Italian, Biaggi followed up his second place finish in race one with a resounding triumph in the second, the Italian owing his upturn in pace to revisions on the suspension and gearbox.
"After the second place in race one I was satisfied anyway, even if – to be honest - I expected the maximum on this track. And so it was in the second race: we made some changes to the rear suspension and the gearbox which, as it turns out, worked well.
“After being behind Rea for a while, I realised that I was faster and I overtook him. From there on, I just pushed it to the limit without thinking about tyre wear and the track proved me right. I want to thank my team.”
