Quotes from the riders after the race

Toni Elias - 1st : ´It´s just incredible. I had a bad start and I couldn´t push then, because I chose a hard compound. As the laps went by, the tyres got better and I could get closer to Melandri and get through on the last lap. I´m very happy to take my first victory in the class, and I want to thank my team, as they solved all the problems we had this weekend´.

Marco Melandri - 2nd : ´It was a difficult race, as I was on soft tyres. At the start, I pushed hard to build the gap, but later, tyre wear meant Elias could catch me. In the last corner, I wasn´t expecting him on the side he got through. I congratulate him and I´m happy, because second is good enough for the Championship´.

Yuki Takahashi - 3rd : ´It was a great opportunity, for me and for Honda. I hope to do as well as today every time I had this kind of opportunity´.
