Leon Haslam is attacking the finale round of the 2015 World Superbike championship with full force after declaring he has 'nothing to lose' in Qatar.

The Aprilia Racing Team - Red Devils rider endured a complete rollercoaster race weekend last time out in France. The British rider grabbed Superpole in torrential rain before bugs with his bike wrecked his races, finishing 16th in race one before a mild recovery with fifth in race two.

Consequently, Haslam has lost touch with the runner-up spot in the championship and is now in the unusual position whereby regardless of any results at Losail he will finish fourth in the World Superbike standings.

After the disappointment at Magny-Cours, Haslam is hoping to end the year on a high as he aims to add to his single victory this year which came way back in February at the season opener at Phillip Island.

"In France things didn't go as we had hoped, so I really want to get back onto the track and give it 100% to finish out the season well," Haslam said. "The standings are what they are so I've got nothing to lose.

"I'll battle lap after lap, aiming for the best possible result. Racing at night at Doha makes everything that much more exciting. I can't wait for this weekend to begin."

With both Haslam's and Aprilia's plans in World Superbike next season yet to be confirmed, with the Italian manufacturer reportedly pulling out of its 'factory' backing, it could be a bittersweet finale for the British rider to end his maiden year with the team.
