Quotations from the top three riders in the 125 race

Quotations from the top three riders in the 125 race

Quotations from the top three riders in the 125 race

Manuel Poggiali (1st): ´I´m very happy with the win. At the beginning of the race I didn't push too hard because I was trying to save my tyres for later. Then in the final five laps I really pushed hard and was able to take the victory. I want to thank my team as the bike was very good this weekend, and I hope to follow up this good result in the next race.´

Arnaud Vincent (2nd): ´I followed Poggiali when he made his move, but I wanted to try and preserve my tyres as much as possible for a final attack, and that´s how it proved. The most important thing was to score as many points as possible though, and so today bodes well for the rest of the championship.´

Daniel Pedrosa (3rd): ´I spent most of the race behind the riders at the head of the field because I wanted to try and save my tyres. On the last lap, Pablo (Nieto) made a slight error and I was able to get past him. Poggiali and Vincent were too far ahead for me to catch them, but I´m happy with my final position.´
