MotoGP Top Three Quotes

Dani Pedrosa

I'm very happy to be first. Overall it was a fantastic weekend. I want to thank my team and all the people around me for a great job, the whole weekend was good through practice to the race itself. At the beginning it was difficult, I had a good start, perfect when compared to other races. I couldn't brake any more on lap four and I ran wide but I was able to come back to take the lead.

Valentino Rossi

For sure it was a great race for the people watching and for me, it was almost like a victory. It has been a difficult week after Assen and the crash, I made a huge effort to be here in good shape, and my wrist didn't feel so bad during the race, Doctor Costa and my physiotherapists did a good job, I didn't have my maximum power but it was good. This weekend we struggled with the bike, usually we are excellent here but this time it was always a case of fighting against it. We prepared a new setting and a new tyre this morning for the warmup, but then it rained so by race time everything was new to us and I needed laps to find my rhythm. It was a great battle with Marco at the end.

Marco Melandri

It was so hard at every point, after a few laps I was little tired but told myself to continue. The doctors helped me to earn this good result. I'm not so happy about the first part of the race though, I had changed my settings from yesterday and with a full tank it was really hard to control the bike, my rear tyre was sliding but later on it got better. I found a good rhythm alongside Valentino and tried to pass him… I thought that I could fight for second place, unfortunately on the last hairpin I hit the brakes but was going too fast and ran wide. It's a good result but I'm still a little disappointed.
