Quotes from the podium

Max Biaggi (1st): "That was a good race. I got a good start and so did Gibernau, so I followed him and he was really trying but I had time to get into a good rhythm and then I managed to overtake him on the brakes and keep my race rhythm. The laps were mainly in the 1m 49s area and I couldn't go any faster - but it was enough to make a break and keep the lead".

Valentino Rossi (2nd): "After a few laps I made a mistake in the braking and lost control of my bike. The situation was bad, with Gibernau in second place and me in ninth. I rode well, made the fastest lap and because Gibernau had some problems on the last lap I made some good points and have a nice advantage going to Malaysia."

Nicky Hayden (3rd) : "It's not the way I wanted to get my first podium. I want a proper podium and that's what I'll be working hard for over the last three races. That was a wild race! I wish I had been scrapping for the win but I'm happy with my season's best place."
