WSBK News. Carlos Checa feels he is crashing more frequently because he is being forced to push harder on his Ducati to make up for its regulation-induced disadvantages.

Carlos Checa feels his costly crash during the first World Superbike Championship race at the Nurburgring is a consequence of him having push his Ducati to the limit through bends to make up the ground it is losing in a straight line.

The Spaniard is on the verge of ceding his WSBK crown following a turbulent season that has seen him crash out of five races, a tally that almost became six when he slid off his Althea Ducati on lap three at the tight first turn hairpin.

Remounting to get back up to 12th position by the chequered flag, a frustrated Checa feels he is powerless to prevent such occurrences since the 'unbalanced game' is forcing him to rush into corners to recover time since the twin-cylinder machine is notably slower on the straights.

An issue that has raised much debate in recent years, Checa, who went on to finish sixth in the second race, says all he can do now is simply focus on a positive end to the season.
