GABOR TALMACSI #14 – 9th; 8th overall with 96 points
“Today the bike was very fast and I want to thanks the team because they did a good job. I could keep the pace of the other riders, but at five laps to go I had to slow down because the rear tyre wore out. The bike was sliding in the curves and I couldn't open the throttle as I did at the beginning. Congratulation to Alvaro Bautista, he really deserves the world title”.
MICHELE PIRRO #15 – retired
“I am not able to ride this bike and to feel confident on the Honda, so I decided to retire in the pit garage. I'm really sorry as I am not using the chance that has been offered to me”.
