Miguel Oliveira, pilot CatalunyaCaixa, nc, fall, 13th in the standings with 39 points:
"We have made a good start and have a good start of the race. We came out fast, we have recovered positions and we contacted the front group but when throughout the weekend you could not shoot at this rate obviously has a direct impact with the settings and feeling with the bike. The work of the bike is different in these conditions and this, to some extent, has been one of the factors that caused my fall. We must be positive and think that over the weekend we learned many things. "
Alex Rins CatalunyaCaixa pilot, 7 classified the Italian Grand Prix, the 5906 winner, 7th in the standings with 63 points:
"I really expected much more. Yes it is true that we should be satisfied with the result if we analyze the situation in the circuit debut and debut in the class but, for me it is not. I have lost my rear tire in the middle of the race and before the first "Rabiatta" I had a scare that made me pick up the front group. I tried to do my career but when you go in a group is complicated. One goal we had was the failure to leave early the last corner to catch the pilot rebufos front. But still, we could not complete a race we had a good start. It is difficult to shoot well but it was a shame as we had pace to finish on the podium. "
