250cc top finishers run through Misano race

250cc top finishers run through Misano race

The quarter-litre class podium riders give their views on a spectacular race.

Alvaro Bautista – Race Winner

`It has been the most difficult weekend of the year, so I am very happy with the win in such heat and with such a hard fight. On Saturday and Friday I couldn´t go fast, and had no feeling on the corners. I thought that it would be a difficult race. In the warmup the team worked hard, and I´m happy for this. I enjoyed riding much more. I knew that the race would be hard because I started so far back, so tried to push. I couldn´t brake entering corners at the start, but caught the front group. After Hector and Marco touched it was easy to finish the race in the lead. Thanks to everyone.´

Yuki Takahashi – Second Place

`It was a hard race. I tried hard because I knew that the other guys were really fast, and that I would have to watch out for all the other riders. Barbera and Simoncelli had a battle and then I thought that I needed to focus even more, that´s why I was able to get this second place.´

Hector Barbera – Third Place

`It was a strange race. At the start, with a full tank, I had some problems with the front end. I had a fight with Marco which lost us a lot of time because of the amount of overtaking. I also had some problems with the rear tyre and the physicality of the race.´
