DENNIS FOGGIA – MOTO3 FIRST RACE WINNER
“I’m very happy with this race and with the win. It felt very long, but before starting we knew that we’d be able to get some advantage because we had a good pace. During the final part, we decided to manage our advantage due to the tyre wear. I’d like to thank the team for their work .”
DENNIS FOGGIA – MOTO3 SECOND RACE WINNER
“I’m very happy with this result, winning both races in Valencia is amazing. The team did a great job. After these two victories, we’ll get back home with a great feeling. At Estoril, we’ll try to get more good results and get on the podium again.”
ERIC GRANADO – MOTO2 FIRST RACE WINNER
“I’m very happy. This weekend went very well. I had a bad start that left me far from the leading group, but then we decided to take it step by step. I knew that I had a good pace and lap after lap I was able to overtake riders and, in the last two laps, I gave my all. The heat was a difficulty, but in the end, I was able to win.”
ERIC GRANADO – MOTO2 SECOND RACE WINNER
“Although from the outside it must have looked as an easy win, it wasn’t. The race was very long, but I was following the information my team was giving me, I kept calm and I set my own pace. In the last 10 laps, the exhaust was broken and touched the tarmac in the left corners, it scared me a bit. Luckily, in the end we were able to finish. Winning two consecutive races is great. I’d like to thank the team and the fans.”
ÁLEX TOLEDO – EUROPEAN TALENT CUP FIRST RACE WINNER
“I had a good start, but I had a lot of issues in the front and I was a bit dragged by the group as everything I could improve when braking I’d lose when accelerating. I was lucky, because there were two riders ahead of me that touched and a third one barely avoided a crash. With this win, I took the first place overall, but I’ll keep doing my best and see how the championship evolves .”
