Even I can not believe we have to end the day , sit down, analyze what happened and enjoy the moment which I think is a great moment in my career. We have become leaders in two races . I'm sorry I could not get with Scott on the track. Our sport is dangerous and this can happen at any time, in any return and in any curve . The goal for the next race is still the same . Come to Japan with the intention of winning , because I think we have to continue with the same attitude that we are having this season. " TITO RABAT 8th "I'm very disappointed because I made a mistake on the final curve and I went straight off the track , so that I could come back and finish the race. Here have been all that we had to win the championship . Now we have to keep working hard in both races we have left and give the maximum. It's a shame what happened but we must continue to improve and continue the line of work we have so far. " AXEL PONS 24th " I made a mistake in the braking for turn ten I went along . I lost a lot of time to return to the race. Then I had to go through boxes because I jumped the start as other drivers who were ahead of me . It's a shame because I have not managed to do the race I had planned. I hope to get out of these thorn in the next round at Motegi . " CAREER 1. POL ESPARGARÓ ( TUENTI HP 40 ) 20:19.219 Two . T.
