Casey Stoner Race Winner

`I couldnt ask for much more! It was a very difficult season with lots of ups and lots of downs. Im looking forward to testing the new bike its the reason that weve kept on riding- but another two good results is great. Yesterday we couldnt 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. Im a little disappointed about this, because I wanted the victory for the fans and with the special Repsol livery. Im happy to get back to the top after a bad middle of the season, where my feeling wasnt 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 Im happy to close the year with a podium. It was a great season, see you next year!
