Quotes from the top three riders after the race

Valentino Rossi (1st): ´A race like this is more difficult than normal, and a win is always important but it´s a shame the stopped early, not finishing a race is like not finishing at all. The rain fell on the first part of the track made it difficult, and towards the end I pushed to get into first, and was lucky to be there when the race was stopped.´

Tohru Ukawa (2nd): ´It was a difficult race today because the conditions did not help us. But I was happy because the machine worked very well and the tyres as well. After everything second place is not so bad, and it is good for the championship so I´m happy.´

Max Biaggi (3rd): ´I think today asking for a victory was maybe too much if you consider how the bike has struggled at the last race for example. I got a good start and was able to stay up there with Rossi and Ukawa, but when the rain came some parts of the track got quite slippy. Third is a good result for us and I am happy with it.
