Reactions from the 250cc Commercialbank Grand Prix of Qatar, won by Polaris World Aprilia's Mattia Pasini on his category debut:

Mattia Pasini: Winner

"This is a wonderful day. Every day through the testing weekends we were going faster, and it's a great result for me, the team, for Aprilia and all the fans. It's a fair reward for all that everybody has done for me."

Hector Barbera: Second placed

"It looks like things went perfectly this weekend. I had some problems with my forearm, which went numb and made me lose some strength in the race. At the midway point I started to lose feeling, above all on the brakes, which caused me to lose some pace. I'm happy with the start to the season; second is the lowest we've been all weekend."

Mika Kallio: Third placed

"Aprilia were very strong, especially Barbera and Bautista. At the beginning of the race I couldn't catch them, but then I joined up with Alex Debon and the rest of the group and we started to make up time. This is like a win for us, because all week we had a lot of problems with feeling."
