Marc Márquez, CatalunyaCaixa pilot, 2nd place Grand Prix of Aragon, the 1447 winner, 1st place overall with 258 points:
"I'm happy, we really enjoyed today and you can not always win. In the final six laps, when everyone-including me-were waiting to attack, I have passed Andrea [Iannone] and Pol [Espargaró], and then Scott [Redding]. I've misplaced a bit, but even with that I think I made some good laps past. Pol has done a great race, was able to escape, because with Andrea've wasted enough time, but in the end the important thing is that I only have five points deducted. There are four races and we must think about the championship. I do not know what would have happened if he had reached Pol, but when Andrea and I have stopped bothering, it was too late. There was only one lap and it was very risky to go for Pol These 20 points are very important for the World Cup. "
Emili Alzamora, Team Manager:
"We are happy with the result as the team has managed to make a good profit from the situation. The conditions that had to play both days of testing were not the best but overall, I think we can make a positive assessment of the weekend. In career, Marc lacked rear grip, which could not escape even if the battle is always very complicated Moto2. Now we face the four races with a good margin of points but we can not throw us off for a moment. "
