Haslam eyeing podium from seventh

Leon Haslam believes a podium is possible from seventh on the grid at Magny-Cours.
Leon Haslam is setting his sights on the podium at Magny-Cours after qualifying seventh for the two races around the French circuit.

As was the case at Imola just a week ago, Haslam has consistently lapped in the top-half of the field, but conceded that the BMW S1000RR was 'difficult to ride' during Superpole, limiting him to the middle of the second row.

Nonetheless, both Haslam and team-mate Troy Corser have shown solid race pace in free practice, giving the Briton confidence that he can get back on the rostrum this weekend.

“We had a few issues in Superpole, which made the bike quite difficult to ride. If we can sit down now and solve these issues before tomorrow then a podium finish is certainly what we are aiming to achieve.

“We have been strong so far this weekend and the times are good on race tyres, but we just need to make some small improvements then we will be in a good position for the races. Right now starting positions and lap times are not what I am thinking about because we know if everything falls into place then we can be right up there.”
