Alvaro Bautista Master Mapfre Aspar (winner, 4356.458s)
It´s been a very tough race, I had a terrible start and was only 12th at the beginning. I tried to push as much as I could and eventually closed on the podium positions. I realized I was able to catch up with Lorenzo and Dovizioso. I pushed 100% and even more in the last few laps once I got in the lead to try and increase the gap. It´s my second win in 250cc, a great win and I´m very happy with the new bike, Aprilia and the team did a great job. I´d like to thank my fans and my family.

Andrea Dovizioso Kopron Team Scot (2nd, 4400.825s)
Im happy as we worked hard all weekend. I think it´s the most we could get out of the bike. We couldn´t win, Bautista rode well and pushed hard, especially in the last five laps and I wasn´t able to catch him. We´re not 100% satisfied but we have to hope for a better result next time out.

Jorge Lorenzo Fortuna Aprilia (3rd, 4402.606s)
It has been a very complicated race, with troubles with the bike and the engine. It must be the first time this year that I complain about the bike as the engine didn´t perform as we wished. Anyway third is good enough for the Championship. I have to congratulate Bautista who had a great race.
