MotoGP Quotes

Marco Melandri Its been a strange season, some races have been bad, some good. Today didn't start so well. The rear side of the tyre was too hard for the first 5 laps. When the tyres were warm the feeling was good and I started to catch front two. I have been lucky; if rossi hadn't have broken down for sure I would have lost to him. When I saw Dani make a mistake I said ‘I think I can overtake him', and when I saw Rossi pull up I said ‘I think I can win'.

Loris Capirossi

I think the race was fantastic, my rhythm was so high, when I saw that Rossi was out I thought that I had a podium finish in the bag, and on the last two laps I went all out to overtake Dani and managed to do so in the final moments.

This morning we hoped for rain because we're not so good here, so I am pleased to be second here.

Dani Pedrosa

I was doing great at the beginning, but even during the first few laps I knew that the end would be difficult. At first the gap was small, but it was always increasing. I had a lot of tyre problems but the choice was mine. I am lucky to finish on the podium so I have to be happy. I did well despite the problems. When Valentino went out I knew that I could get the podium place because I was part of the front group.
