Quotes from the 250cc podium in Spain

Randy De Puniet, winner:

"The race was very difficult because Toni was riding every hard on the last lap. He passed me on the second corner but I managed to get the lead back and then I closed every door. To finish the last race with a victory is perfect."

Toni Elias, runner-up:

"I am a little bit angry because I wanted to win here but Randy today was very strong. At the beginning it was not possible to follow him but I worked hard and was able to catch up after some laps. The last lap was a nice fight for the spectators but it was very difficult for me; I really wanted to win in my country. I am happy to finish third in the Championship and I want to thank the team and dedicate this podium to them and all the fans."

Manuel Poggiali, 3rd place and World Champion:

"This weekend was not easy. Wednesday night I was ill and I crashed three times. Today I was riding with pain in my legs but third place is great for me and I am so happy to have finally won the World Championship."

250cc, 2003, Gran Premio Marlboro de la Comunitat Valenciana
