    Alvaro Bautista enjoyed another perfect round at his home race at Aragon to maintain his perfect start to the WSBK season, taking another three wins to bring his total to the season to nine.

    The MotoGP exile produced a carbon copy performance, taking a comfortable Race One win before adding the Sprint Race and Race Two victories to his tally to extend his lead in the standings to 39 points over Jonathan Rea.

    The Spaniard said: "It has been an extraordinary weekend for me. Winning three races here in Spain in front of my family, my friends and the Spanish fans was really great. In all three, I was able to make my own strategy, that is get a fast start and maintain my own pace.

    “The conditions in the three races were different, especially today in the Superpole Race which took place in the morning when it was very cold. Luckily it got a bit warmer for Race 2, but you could really feel the wind.

    “Despite this, I was able to stay focussed, understand the situation on the track and push hard all the way."

    Jonathan Rea took a hat-trick of second-place finishes to limit the damage, with Ducati's Chaz Davies finally enjoying a strong race weekend, taking a brace of third-place finishes.
