Quotes from the top three in the MotoGP class

Valentino Rossi: ´This was a very important victory given the circumstances. I fell twice in training, it was the first time I´d tested the new bike in the wet and I finished fourteenth in the warm-up. On the last lap I didn´t make any mistakes and I was able to win it.´

Akira Ryo: ´I´m very satisfied although I could even have won the race. Anyway, Rossi is the World Champion and, bearing that in mind, I must be happy with my second place.´

Carlos Checa: ´This morning in the warm-up we didn´t have enough time to test everything we wanted to. In the race, I had a few problems with the power delivery, and moreover it was very difficult to overtake due to the conditions. I hope this result pushes us on to improve things even more quickly´.
