Wow... the Top 5 are separated by 2-tenths of a second. As long as Spies is on the front row, that's good! But Pole would would nice.

It should be a great race. I hope they get to battle to the very end with no issues. If Spies has a mechanical or if Rea knocks down Haga that will suck.

simmering nicely

http://www.crash.net/world+superbike..._portugal.html
Quote:
Ben Spies was in a buoyant mood following the opening day of World Superbike Championship action at Portimao, the American finishing comfortably ahead of title rival Noriyuki Haga.

Knowing he needs a double victory to guarantee himself the 2009 crown, Spies comes to Portugal on a level playing field with his adversary having tested with Yamaha at the circuit previously.

With this in mind, Spies was quickly up to speed, even if neither he nor Haga would end the day as the man to beat overall.

Nonetheless, despite emerging third quickest, Spies was less than a tenth off provisional pole sitter Jonathan Rea, yet almost half a second up on Haga. It's a result that gives him confidence for the remainder of the crucial weekend.

“We had a good day today, we worked a lot on the race set up and evaluated a couple of different tyres. The package feels good and the bike feels good on the track, all we can do is keep trying to make it better and better and keep working on my riding and see what happens. The track is still a little green but it's getting better.”

Noriyuki Haga: I am pretty confident, I know we are fast and that we can be very competitive here.
Title contender Noriyuki Haga was keeping cool about his chances for the remainder of the World Superbike weekend in Portugal after finishing the opening day in ninth position, half a second down on Ben Spies.

With the playing field levelled by Haga and Spies' prior experience of the Portimao circuit, it was the Ducati man to held the upper hand over his rival during free practice with the second fastest time overall.

However, Haga was unable to improve his lap times quite as much during provisional qualifying, leaving him in ninth position.

Focusing on race set-up, although Haga admits he is not entirely satisfied with having ended the day as only the fifth best placed Ducati, he remains 'pretty confident' he will be competitive when it matters.

“The lap times today were faster than those recorded during testing earlier this year. In general we haven't had any real problems but we are working to find the optimal setting and we'll continue this work tomorrow. I would like to find more grip but apart from that I am pretty confident, I know we are fast and that we can be very competitive here.”

Team-mate Michel Fabrizio didn't fare much better down in seventh position, behind the three satellite 1098s of Jakub Smrz, Shane Byrne and Fonsi Nieto. Nonetheless, he insists things are 'under control'.

“For now I'd say we have things under control. Today we worked mainly with the hard tyres to improve feeling on the track surface. I don't yet have total faith in the front of the bike and the asphalt was not in the best condition, which meant I couldn't really push as hard as I wanted to.
“Tomorrow we'll make some more changes, testing some different tyres and hopefully I'll be able to improve significantly on my time.”
http://www.crash.net/world+superbike...ole_boost.html
Quote:
Jonathan Rea says he will need to keep 'attacking' if he is to challenge for victory at this weekend's World Superbike season finale in Portugal, despite picking up provisional pole position.

Although Noriyuki Haga and Ben Spies' battle for the title occupies much of the attention at Portimao, the Northern Irishman is still bidding to conclude his rookie season by snatching fourth position off Max Biaggi in the overall standings.

While he needs to overturn a 14 points deficit in order to do so, Rea began his quest well by claiming provisional pole position for the Ten Kate Honda team, while the Aprilia man could only manage eighth.

A return to the scene of his World Superbike debut twelve months ago, Rea is feeling confident on the Honda CBR1000RR, but insists he will need to find more speed if he is to end his year on a high.

“That was a good first day and we've found a good balance with the bike,” he said. “We've been trying to put some distance on race tyres and we only used three tyres today. I'm finding more confidence on the bike each time I go out and the team is working really well.

“We're not getting ahead of ourselves though, and know that we need to go out and attack tomorrow, just like we did today. This is quite a technical track and I felt like I really gelled with it for the first time during that session. That's not all down to me, but also to the hard work the team has been putting in recently.”

Race 1:

Race 1 was dominated from start to finish by Spies, who took his fourteenth win of the season and overhauled Haga in the title chase. The Texan, who rocketed away from the line, comfortably held off any attempts at an attack from Biaggi, then upped his pace to go on to take a solitary chequered flag. With this result Spies now has a 15-point advantage over Haga, who lost the front and crashed on lap 7 while making up time in fifth place. The runner-up slot went to Rea, who got the better of Biaggi after a terrific duel. The best Ducati rider to the line in fourth place was Shane Byrne, in one of his best races of the year, while fifth went to Michel Fabrizio (Ducati), who compromised his race with a bad start. Leon Camier had a good run to sixth for Aprilia, while Ruben Xaus finished eighth on the first BMW. Both Suzukis failed to finish, Yukio Kagayama crashing out and Sylvain Guintoli forced to retire.
