Yiku Kunii – Moto3 1st race winner

“At the beginning, the first group got a small advantage, so I pushed to the limit to try and catch up with them. Finally, Pagliani, Fernández and I were able to make contact, creating a group of five riders. In the last corner of the last lap, the three riders in front crashed and that handed me the victory. I’m very happy, I want to thank the whole team and all those who have helped me.”

Sergio García – Moto3 2nd race winner

“It was a very complicated race, and really tough, due to the high temperatures. Nevertheless, we did a great job. I was able to keep my focus and, in the end, I could pass Ogura and take this win. I want to dedicate this race to my friend Andreas Pérez, who will always be with us.”

Edgar Pons –  Moto2 race winner

“It was a very good weekend. In the free practices we had a slightly better pace than the others, so in the race our aim was to take the first place at the start and push. In the end, we did it; I escaped in the first lap, but it wasn’t easy, as the other riders were also pushing hard. In the final stages, the tyres were a bit worn and it was difficult to control the bike when entering and going out of the corners. Despite that, I was able to keep the distance with the second, Jesko Raffin, and win the race. I want to thank the team and everyone that supports me.”

Matteo Bertelle – European Talent Cup 1st race winner

“It was a very tough first race because it was so hot. It was also a group race and we’ve been fighting from start to end. I’m very happy with this win and I want to thank my parents and the whole team for helping me getting it.”

Matteo Bertelle – European Talent Cup 2nd race winner

“I’m very happy to have taken this second win. We did a great job, despite it being a very tough race due to the heat. I want to thank my team because the bike worked very well and I felt very comfortable both in the first and the second race.”
