"I like to win like that, especially with how the race has been raised. I knew I could be in front, I was confident, but in the warm-up and cost me a bit, because I had the right rhythm and did not know how to hold out the tires during the race. In addition, I have been almost fell once and I lost a little concentration. In that time I have advanced Pol and Tito [Esteve Rabat] and has been ready to spend a third driver, so I've seen that I had to react, because there were many more riders behind. Being a career so short, it has been difficult to think calmly on the bike and so the final was so intense. I tried to recover by going to the limit on every lap and when I finally able to contact Pol, I tried to overtake him in the first corner in which I had a chance and that is where we started the fight, which I think has been very nice to the viewer. At each stop trying to brake as late as possible, and he did the same, but I could be first to the last corners and cover all the gaps. It was an important victory because Pol [Espargaró] has always been fast on this circuit. "
Emili Alzamora, Team Manager:
"Very satisfied because for us it was a weekend rather complicated: on qualifying rain and red flag, leaving the race with only 14 laps. Everything became a big unknown. Marc has managed the adverse situation perfectly and in the end, has been known to attack at the right time. We in the box, we have not wanted to mark anything as who is on the bike and knows how to analyze their chances at all times is himself. A limit as we have seen, in large part due to the great trust that has Marc, and above all, in the sweet moment in which it is located. This gave him the mental strength "plus" must now missing from the bike. As a team we need to maintain the state of grace in which Marc is ".
