Quotes from the 250cc podium

Fonsi Nieto (1st): `I am very happy with today´s result – it is a very important victory for me. I have to say thanks to the team, to my family and everybody who has helped me win again. At the start of the race I had a few problems because I put on a hard tyre which meant I could go quicker at the end of the race. I stayed really focussed on the front group and I was helped by the fight between Poggiali and Elías. I think I shut the door on the last lap and I only wanted victory today so I have to be happy. I am second in the championship, it is wide open and anything can happen´.

Manuel Poggiali (2nd) `My race has not been perfect because of the mistakes made in the practices. The three crashes cost us a lot of time and the chassis setting of my bike was not at 100%. I had problems in the rear above all. In these conditions I was unable to do better so I feel satisfied with my second position. My half-season has been very positive and I did not expect to lead the standings. Congratulations to Nieto - he was very fast today.

Anthony West (3rd): `I felt a lot of pressure to produce a good result in the dry here today because people were saying I only won at Assen because it was wet. I got a bad start and had to fight through the group but I got a good rhythm together and felt strong enough to challenge the front guys at the end. This is a great result for me – my third podium in a row!´.
