Quotes from the podium finishers

Max Biaggi - 1st : ´It was a fast race. I had a good start. Barros was very quick and I tried to follow him. I did a couple of mistakes, but the bike wasn´t bad. I had an opportunity to win and I went for the 25 points´.

Valentino Rossi - 2nd : ´Today, my main rival was my team mate Ukawa. I had a poor start and I didn´t have a good feeling with the front. Catching Barros and Biaggi was difficult, and I made a mistake when I tried to overtake the Brazilian. We went too fast in the corner and we both lost the race then´.

Alex Barros - 3rd : ´When you´re fighting for the win, that kind of thing can happen. I won´t complain about Rossi because I could have done the same. Earlier, Biaggi got through when I made a mistake on shifting, and I wasn´t able to go faster to catch him. It´s a good result despite what happened. Within two races aboard the 4-stroke, I won once and took another podium finish´.
