Fonsi Nieto, 3rd position:

"It is good to be on the podium again. It was a hard race and I was fighting very hard with De Puniet for a long time. In the last two laps I passed him and then tried to push and breakaway. When I saw that he had crashed I eased off and made sure of third place. Coming over the line on the last lap I looked to the team to see if I had to give a position to Toni, but he was behind Poggiali. I now hope to go to Valencia and win and give the team a good finish to the season."

Ant West, runner-up:

"Racing at home really helped to get this result today; the rain was also handy! Everyone knows that I like the wet but Rolfo got a great start and I did everything to try and catch him but it just wasn't possible. When the track started to dry I was happy to take second."

Roby Rolfo, Winner:

"It was a very nice race and satisfying because we had some problems in practice but were able to work on the bike and make improvements. In the warm-up I was happy because I knew I could be quicker in the wet. I enjoyed myself today and was concentrating so much in difficult conditions. The Championship is now open and I am pleased with this win."
