Words and views from the last MotoGP podium of the season

Valentino Rossi, winner:

"It was an important victory and I am happy because I have never been that fast here in the past. We worked well over the weekend and managed to take the pole so I had a good feeling. The race was very hard because Sete was in good shape. I tried to escape the first time and I could not lose him. On the second attempt I made four or five strong laps and was able to take the win."

Sete Gibernau, runner-up:

"I have so many things to say! As before I have to congratulate Valentino for his Championship, he was the strongest of us this season. I must give thanks to the best team and sponsor in the world, who have both supported me so much. I have found strength this year from tragedy and this was because of Daijiro Kato's family and also the team; they have made this a great season for me."

Loris Capirossi, 3rd position:

"I am very happy with this result today because we thought that this track would not be the best for our bike. I want to give thanks to the team and the mechanics who have been working so hard with this new project since the start of the year. A podium is a good result for us at the last race and to go into the winter hopeful of making a better bike for next year."
