"The truth is that it was a tough race, I did not expect this victory. My goal in today's race was to try to follow the pace of other drivers, but it has not been as strong as we expected. It was a very elaborate and beautiful victory. After the winter we've been through, is much appreciated. This Grand Prix has been especially hard during practice and I had a hard time catching up. But in the race I felt very good, very concentrated, because I knew if I was not one hundred percent in every way would not have options. It was a surprise to me. There are still many races, this is only the first and we have to go step by step. This just started. "

"I think we need adjectives to qualify the performance of Marc's really got something special because when you face adversity, we grow. I think one of the most important keys have been the work that Marc has performed with his crew, using used tires throughout the weekend, looking for settings, looking at the telemetry of last season, going over every detail, and so on. For CatalunyaCaixa Repsol team today is a very special day and we've been very difficult times over the winter. Now I remember people like Dr. Mir, who with the help of Dr. Sanchez Dalmau made this victory possible. I want to thank the unconditional support of the sponsors CatalunyaCaixa, Repsol, the fan club, family and all fans. We could not have started the championship best. "
