Nasser Bin Khalifa Al-Attiyah, Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation President:
"It's a great honour for us to welcome the biggest motorsport show on two wheels once again. We are very grateful for the opportunity offered to us by Dorna and the FIM and also the massive support of the institutions, businesses and government of Qatar."

"Hosting the first race of the season requires a huge effort, but at the same time it's a fantastic opportunity for us. In commercial and marketing terms to have the first Grand Prix of the Championship is great news, because of the enormous media coverage it offers us. Furthermore, to have had one of the MotoGP Official Tests only a few days ago also benefits the image of our circuit and our country."

Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO Dorna Sports:
It's a genuine pleasure to be here. We have been visiting Qatar for four years and every season we enjoy a better circuit and more professional organisation. I believe it has been a great success to open the 2007 season in Qatar and we are very happy. Also, the teams and everyone involved in the World Championship are satisfied, we were here very recently for a preseason test and that is also important. We are confident that the Grand Prix in Qatar will become one of the regular dates on the calendar and I hope that we will be able to keep working with the people here for many years.
