Quotes from the top three riders after the race

Alex Barros - 1st : ´I would like to thank the HRC for providing me the 4-stroke bike, and my team for their work. The bike is really fast and I was surprised by its handling. I tried to run at my own pace, without pushing to hard, because I had no idea of how it would go during the last laps with the tyre I had. When Rossi got through, I gave it all until I got a small gap. I´m very happy with this win´.

Valentino Rossi - 2nd : ´It was one of the hardest races of the season. We weren´t able to get the right set-up in practice and during the race, I struggled with the bike every time I braked. In those conditions, second position is a good result. It´s also a good way to be even more upbeat for the next race in Malaysia´.

Loris Capirossi - 3rd : ´I had good practice sessions, and today, I did all I could. In the last two laps, I didn´t pushed harder because I knew I couldn´t catch Alex and Valentino. Today, third was the best result I could get´.
