After the breathtaking 250cc race in Jerez, the top three finishers in the quarter litre category thriller gave their takes on the proceedings.

Mika Kallio – Race Winner

`Of course this was a little bit of a surprise for me also. Yesterday everything was okay and in the warmup things went good, then something happened and I lost my rear grip. This made it very difficult to handle, so I was trying to survive and win the race. Following Bautista and Simoncelli was impossible, so we were lucky. After a few years where we haven´t had so much luck, I hope that this is a sign of something better.´

Mattia Pasini – Second Place

`It was a fabulous race! Yesterday things didn´t go well for us; we had a few problems. We changed the chassis a little before the warmup and the feeling got better, but I didn´t have a great start. In the middle of the race I was faster than the front guys, but they were far away, so when I saw them on the side of the track and Yuki in front I push, push, pushed.´

Yuki Takahashi – Third Place

`It was incredible. The start was very good for me and I tried hard. In the middle of the race the tyre started to slide, and in the final lap Pasini passed me; but I can´t really say anything about that!´
