MotoGP top trio review final race of 2008

MotoGP top trio review final race of 2008

The podium finishers at the Gran Premio Parts Europe de la Comunitat Valenciana look back on the Sunday race.

Casey Stoner – Race Winner

`I couldn´t ask for much more! It was a very difficult season with lots of ups and lots of downs. I´m looking forward to testing the new bike –it´s the reason that we´ve kept on riding- but another two good results is great. Yesterday we couldn´t find a good setup, but working after doing the qualifying laps and in the warmup got us ready for the race.´

Dani Pedrosa – Second Placed

`Normally Stoner is very good at setting up the bike in a short amount of time. In the race he was just a little faster. He was better than me today. I´m a little disappointed about this, because I wanted the victory for the fans and with the special Repsol livery. I´m happy to get back to the top after a bad middle of the season, where my feeling wasn´t so good, so this is a good thing for us.´

Valentino Rossi – Third Placed

`We completely messed up the only dry practice. I started from the fourth row because of this. We modified the setting, I got a great start and overtook other riders quickly. I was behind Dani quite early and not so far, and I tried to push but we were not at 100%. We always struggle here, but I´m happy to close the year with a podium. It was a great season, see you next year!´
