The views from the 250cc podium at Mugello

The three podium finishers in the 250cc race at the Gran Premio d'Italia Alice look back on a dramatic quarter litre class contest at Mugello.

The three podium finishers in the 250cc race at the Gran Premio d'Italia Alice look back on a dramatic quarter litre class contest at Mugello:

Alvaro Bautista Master – Mapfre Aspar (winner, 40'18.605)
"It was a hard race because it was so fast but it was an enjoyable race. On the last lap De Angelis, Lorenzo and me were there and I could see that De Angelis wanted to win because he's at home here, and he's very strong here so I tried to follow him. I passed Jorge (Lorenzo), we touched, but I think it was a normal pass for the last lap of a race and then I caught De Angelis on the last corner."

Alex de Angelis Master – Mapfre Aspar (2nd, 40'18.692)
"It's been a very difficult race with the weather situation. It has rained so much that the tyre choice for a dry race was very complicated. Bautista's bike was tough to keep up with. It was a beautiful race and I think the home crowd had a lot of fun."

Hector Barbera Team Toth Aprilia (3rd, 40'26.270)
"It's been a complicated weekend with rain, we haven't been able to try things. In the race I started pretty well, but then I had a clutch problem, and after the first lap I was 14th or 15th, so I had to recover a lot of ground and I had to make much more use of the tyres until I caught up with the main group. I'm really happy to be back on the podium. I want to thank my team because they work really hard and they're helping me a lot."
