The Donington 250cc podium trio give their views on a dramatic quarter litre class race in the rain at the Nickel & Dime British Grand Prix:
Andrea Dovizioso Kopron Team Scot
"For sure it's good for the championship but also for the race because it was so difficult to stay on the bike and Alex (de Angelis) was riding very fast. For me it was difficult to follow him but I tried, I pushed and in the last three laps Alex pushed again but crashed. I'm so happy, I want to say thank you to the team, to my friends and all the people around me."
Alex de Angelis Master – Mapfre Aspar
"Despite the crash I'm quite happy. I went wide on a corner and through a part of the track where there was loads of water. Still I was able to get up, pick up the bike and get back on track. Thanks to our good pace I had a minute's gap from the third placed rider and it's a good result for the championship."
Hiroshi Aoyama Red Bull KTM
"It was a very, very tough race, very slippery in the wet conditions. I was pushing all the time and I saw many riders crashing in front of me so it was very hard to keep concentration. But anyway we finished third and it's been a difficult season so I want to thank all my mechanics."
