1st Álvaro Bautista
“The race has been very hard because of the heat. I started a little badly, but quickly I caught up with the front group. I think that we had a great weekend, as we were at the front for the entire time in practice. We tried to slow the race pace down to let some other riders come into play in the World Championship picture, but in the end we were just three at the head of the race. When we saw that there were no other riders near, the decision was made to at least try and win the race. The season didn’t start as we would have liked, and we were always on the back foot after some early problems, but second place is not so bad in the championship. However, it wasn’t our goal when we started the year, and we will have to give our all in Valencia to cheer up the home fans.”

Héctor Faubel (DNF)
“Once again I had a crash that I don’t understand. It was in the second section of the track, on the fifth corner. I was fast off the line and my front went out. We keep having this problem on the weekends, where the practices go well and in the race something happens to us. It’s a pity because we couldn’t take a good result home. Now we have to turn the page and look to Cheste. It is a circuit that I love, and I won last year in 125cc. I will be at home and trying to have fun enjoying the atmosphere.”
