250cc top trio look back at Sachsenring challenge

250cc top trio look back at Sachsenring challenge

Sachsenring racewinner Marco Simoncelli and the two riders closest to him after his runaway victory faced the cameras after a wet and wild race in Germany.

Marco Simoncelli – Race Winner

`It has been a perfect day. I´m very happy. It´s wonderful. Before I thought that probably this race would be difficult; I had a new bike and thought that this would be complicated. But the weekend was perfect. This morning I saw the rain and was disappointed , because yesterday I was very fast in the dry. I tried to concentrate and give 100%. To begin with I was very fast, and I kept a big gap open.´

Hector Barbera – Second Placed

`I was hoping for more, as the warmup was good for me. There were different conditions in the warmup than in the race. I picked up confidence as the race went on and improved my pace until I was very fast at the end of the race. I´m not totally content, but it´s not a bad result.´

Alvaro Bautista – Third Placed

`It´s been a good result for me. The two first laps I was more than slow" I didn't get any feeling on the wet track. It was difficult for me to enjoy the race with the front and rear slide that I was having. Lap-by-lap I picked up more feeling and confidence until the finish. I was fighting for second but I preferred third to risking everything, because it would have been easy to crash here.´
