MotoGP Top Three Quotes

Nicky Hayden

The win was super important, Colin was so smooth and fast that I thought he might get away from me. On the last few laps I was able to close down Colin and get the win. I'm so excited and really want to thank Repsol Honda and Michelin for their great job. I was Worried that I had been a bit hard on the tyres this weekend, but they were really good and the team's efforts really paid off.

Shinya Nakano

I didn't know what was happening on the last lap, it was a surprise to see that I had come in second. I'm happy to be here at the end of the race, not just after qualifying. With this result I can see Kawasaki becoming better and better, they work so hard for us and we have made a step forward. I am very happy and looking forward to the next race.

Dani Pedrosa

At the beginning of the race I had a problem, because I couldn't overtake Melandri and lost touch with the lead group. When I got past Melandri I could start to move up the field, and I was putting in similar times to Nicky and Colin. I think that I was fortunate with Colin's crash, without it I wouldn't be on the podium. The battle at the end with Stoner was tough and I was happy to finish ahead of him at the finishing line.
