Views from the podium after a heated 250 race in Brno

Randy De Puniet, winner:

"I knew that my best chance to win this race would be to get out fron on the last lap and then shut the door in every corner. Toni and Manuel lost some time on the lap and that helped me. To win here, the second of my career, is great and is very important for the Championship."

Toni Elias, runner-up:

"That was a difficult race! I started well and decided in the middle of the race that I would go to the front. I tried to get away from the others but my tyres could not make the pace that I wanted. The last lap was hard work. I was fighting with Manuel and that lost me some seconds to De Puniet. Anyway it is important for me and the team that we made the podium today and took some points."

Manuel Poggiali, 3rd position:

"It was a hard but fun race. If I even finished in this position in the Championship I would be happy because this is my first year in the 250s. Toni was stronger than me on the last lap but next time I will be in front of him and pushing for the win."
