Quotes from the top 3 riders after the race

Valentino Rossi - 1st : 'It's my 50th victory, it's a great result. Today, it was very difficult because Alex was very quick. At the beginning of the race, his rhythm was incredible. I tried to push as I knew there would be an opportunity to pass when the tyres were used. After I took the lead, I had to be careful because I knew he would try to overtake me, but he missed his move'.

Alex Barros - 2nd : 'I tried to push as much as I could to build the gap from the start of the race, because I had softer tyres than Valentino. He was also quick and managed to follow me. At the end of the race, I had problems with the clutch. Anyway, Rossi deserved this win. I'll try to do better next time'.

Tohru Ukawa - 3rd : 'I'm quite happy with this result. I had a good start and I tried to follow Rossi and Barros, but I didn't manage to do so. Third is a good result'.
