Quotes from the top three finishes in France

Dani Pedrosa, winner:

´The track was very slippery today and it was difficult to know what tyre to go for. Towards the end of the race my front tyre started to go off and I was having problems. I managed to get a good rhythm going early on and I went to the front early, which was very important. I'm really happy with this result and I have to say a big thank you to the team.´

Lucio Cecchinello, runner-up:

´I have to pay my compliments to Dani, he rode a very good race. Unfortunately my start was not so good and I had to fight with Dovizoso so I could not stay with Dani and he was just too fast for us. I had messages from the mechanics saying that De Angelis was coming also so it was hard at the end of the race and I really had to push for this result.´

Andrea Dovizioso, 3rd position:

´I am very happy with this result even if maybe I was expecting a bit more after taking pole position. I think Dani surprised everyone with his speed at the start. I tried everything on the last lap to try and get past Lucio but he was just too string on the brakes and it was impossible to pass.´
