Jorge Lorenzo Fortuna Aprilia (winner, 42'54.427)
"Fighting with Andrea would have been fun, he's a strong rider but he couldn't finish the race - sure it's a shame but it happened to me on previous occasions like Donington. We're happy with this result, it's another important step for the Championship."

Hiroshi Aoyama Red Bull KTM (2nd, 42'58.005)
"I had a bad start and wasn't too comfortable with the bike at the beginning of the race but I began to feel better as the laps went by. I eventually picked up my pace and closed on Barbera at the end. I spent a couple of laps behind him and finding an opening wasn't easy but I eventually passed him! It's a great result."

Hector Barbera Team Toth Aprilia (3rd, 43'01.468)
"Today's race was really tough. We only had a little track time yesterday, the track is quite bumpy and tricky. I wasn't expecting to fight up front! There are only a few races left in the season and it's good to get that kind of result now. I have to thank the team as the bike worked really well today."
