Quotes from the podium

Valentino Rossi (1st): `To win this race in front of so many people here is very special. My congratulations go to Loris and Max because they both rode a great race, and I think it was a good spectacle. On the last lap I was worried because I saw my pit board say Loris was coming, but I kept my concentration, kept my rhythm and arrived first. I am so happy.

Loris Capirossi (2nd): `This is fantastic – it feels as good as a win. It´s a great day for Ducati, for all of us, and for the fans. I tried my best – got into a good rhythm from the start, but then Max and Valentino came. Valentino was so fast, then I had a big fight with Max. It was so difficult to overtake him but my bike had fantastic top speed, so I was able to do it.

Max Biaggi (3rd): `Today I pushed myself to my limit, I don´t think someone could ask me more than this. Third is a decent result but now I really want to win. This morning the warm up was good, this meaning the team was able to solve the engine problems we had yesterday. I made a good start and I tried my best for staying on front but then Rossi came.´
