Stoner, Rossi and Pedrosa review British showdown

Stoner, Rossi and Pedrosa review British showdown

The top three in both the bwin.com British Grand Prix and the World Championship standings gave their thoughts on the Donington Park race after stepping off the podium.

Casey Stoner – Race Winner

`It´s better for us here to win here because we know that now we can run better for the future again. The first races after Qatar were a disaster for us. We started fast right from the first session and have been competitive in both the wet and the dry. I have to thank the mechanics; they´ve been working hard to solve problems that we´ve been having, and I hope that this is something for future races, not just the two where we´ve tested.´

Valentino Rossi – Second Place

`I tried to stay with Casey at the beginning of the race, but it was not possible. I knew that Dani could come back at me, and when I saw his name on the board the battle started. On some corners we were not fast enough, and it was difficult like always. These 20 points are important for the championship, and I hope to have a better result in Assen.´

Dani Pedrosa – Third Place

`I am happy because the race was hard. I started from the back, got a good start and started to pass riders. I knew that Stoner and Rossi were going fast. Third is good but we have to improve. Anyway, I´m happy because the weekend itself was quite difficult.´
