A dominant victory for Alvaro Bautista in Race 2 for the Pirelli French Round.

With three rounds to go in the 2023 WorldSBK season, Bautista’s lead over Razgatlioglu is 57 points.
“It was a really emotional weekend. After the problem I had in Race 1, in the Superpole Race I was unfortunately involved in contact with Michael. I’m very sorry that he crashed but you have to believe me: I couldn’t do anything to avoid the contact. Race-2 was really good for me as the feeling was extraordinary from the first to the last lap .“
