It was a good duel, and in the end it is a dream come true for me ».
Marc Marquez fought until the end: «I’m looking for the best level, I’m happy with the result, I was really at the limit with everything, the body, the bike, the tires. I also thought I could win but I’m really happy for this podium, another good result in a difficult season ».

That of the first victory is a moment that a rider never forgets, but to be able to do it after a battle like this is great. He’s riding the Ducati fantastically, at times he was unlucky with the tires, at times he made strange decisions with the compounds, but this time he was superb. It is a victory of 10 and praise: he took pole, he was always in the lead from the first corner and then he won with a fight to the death in the final laps ».
Rossi’s happiness is also spiced with a pinch of legitimate pride: «I’m proud of how he grew up with us in the VR46 Riders Academy: we took him when he was in Moto3 and we helped him bring him to this level – says Vale -. Destiny is in the hands of each of them, but I am happy to have grown up in the Academy, both he and Franco Morbidelli. I think Bagnaia and Morbidelli are two of the top riders on the grid and it will be nice to see them both on official bikes next year, one on Ducati and the other on Yamaha ».
On his 19th place he says: «A difficult day after a complicated weekend for the whole Yamaha: I tried not to force at the beginning so as not to burn the tires but it went bad all the same».
