Quotes from the top three riders after the race

Valentino Rossi - 1st : ´At the start of the race Ukawa´s crash came as a gift. Following Roberts was difficult because he was pretty quick and there was water spraying up in my face. I wanted to get past him not because I was quicker but because I couldn´t see anything. The Yamahas were getting closer and Checa came like he was from another planet. Then he crashed out and fortunately, he didn´t touch me. With Biaggi behind me, I had to keep up the pace to the end of the race´.

Max Biaggi - 2nd : ´It was a tough race. We did great work in the dry and we tried to do the best we could on the wet. When I saw Ukawa crashing out, I thought about the title and after Checa also went out, I gave it all. Anyway, second is a great result and I would like to congratulate Valentino because he deserves it´.

Kenny Roberts - 3rd : ´It´s a very important result, for me and for the whole team. We´re improving, but we still have a lot of work. I pushed hard in the early stages of the race, but I couldn´t stay with Rossi and lost my pace´.
