Haslam finished race one in 14th spot before crashing out of the second race at the first corner at the Misano Circuit in Italy

“Obviously the last race was a bit of a disaster as I lost the front in turn one, ran onto the green to try and save it but ultimately crashed,” he said.

“We have struggled with a few issues throughout the whole weekend, things we’ve been carrying since the first race actually.

“It’s a little strange as I’ve felt very positive during all the tests we have done. So yes, it was a less than ideal weekend here in Misano but we will work together as a team to seek a solution.

“We have some tests in a few days’ time before my home race at Donington where I hope to arrive feeling more like I did at the beginning of the year.”
