After the fourteenth round of the 2007 World Championship, at the bwin.com Grande Premio de Portugal, the three men on the MotoGP Estoril podium review Sunday afternoons proceedings.

Valentino Rossi Fiat Yamaha (winner, 4549.911s)
This was an important win, the fourth victory of the year. Its quite a good number and it was an amazing race. It was a great battle with Dani especially, and with Casey. Today everything worked well and maybe Michelin had something more than Bridgestone.

Dani Pedrosa Repsol Honda (2nd, 4550.086s)
At the end Valentino got past me and I had no time to get back past him. But Im happy because we were able to maintain our lap times from the beginning to the end, so I want to say thanks to my team and everyone around me.

Casey Stoner Ducati Marlboro (3rd, 4551.388s)
We had a lot higher expectations going into the race, at least to be there on the last lap, battling. We thought we had a pretty good set-up, but about five laps into the race I started having a problem with the clutch and it was hitting neutral. I couldnt brake as late as these guys without running wide.
