Quotes from the top three after the race

Valentino Rossi (1st): ´It was a very good race for me, and I´m happy to have won in front of the Italian fans. It was a victory that I´d hoped for as I hadn´t been able to achieve it for the last two years. The fall in the warm-up actually helped, because it made me more cautious as I had to race on my second bike. I used softer tyres than my rivals and when I began to push hard I was able to get away from Biaggi. Everything went well.´

Max Biaggi (2nd): ´The new chassis worked well, and we can still improve a lot as we now know what we have to do to get closer to Rossi who is still ahead of us. This second place is important because it´s my best finish of the season and because it came in front of my home fans. I´m sure we´re going to keep on improving.´

Tohru Ukawa (3rd): ´My bike was went well today and that allowed me to get third place. This isn´t an ideal circuit for me, but I made it on to the podium and that´s a good result´.
