Iannone knew I was close, but when I tried to overtake him missed, it was clear that this was not my fight.

When the lights are off I saw that had the neutral position and the first thing I thought is that nobody hit me from behind, not to lose the race, but because both the other driver and I could have done much damage.
In that respect I have been very lucky, but at the first corner was very late and I had to give one hundred percent in the first two rounds. Seeing that he was with the lead group, my goal was to score as many points as possible, but I was surprised myself to see that going up the ranks and reached those who were leading the race.

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. "

"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 ".

Emili Alzamora, Team Manager:
"This weekend has been a bit complicated. Marc was not comfortable despite having made good records over the two days of testing. Today, in the 'warm up' we have also tested some solutions that have not worked and also in career wins' chattering thus, could not do what he has done. One of the most important points to keep in mind is that Marc has learned to be conservative when the bike is not ready. In a category as matched as this you need to know to make a fourth or fifth place and stay off the podium if you want to fight for the championship. Now we have a break in the coming weeks and take the opportunity to make a three-day test at Portimao where we will try, along with technicians Suter, provide all means and have a little more stability.

"I knew from the beginning I had to start strong, because both Iannone as Espargaró came a little late and I knew I could make a difference. But with new tires I had found comfortable. With less grip sensations have improved, but then I have left some problems in the rear, I was bouncing off the curves and prevented me from having to keep up in training. I think we did a smart race, because when I saw Iannone I almost came to change the strategy and stay behind him to not spend too much tire. But I decided to throw and when I saw her fall through the screens I have tried to stay focused. It was very hard to be the whole race with so little advantage, but went well and at the end, old tires, I could keep up and open a small hole. "
Emili Alzamora, Team Manager:
"It was a perfect race. It is the first time that Marc is leading the race from start to finish and that's a very important point to consider. Marc is a young driver you will gain experience year after year and today, I liked the approach has been applied and career as he has managed. He knew he had to go right, shoot and score their own pace, and has done so. He has managed to do very well, which is not easy the fact maintain concentration throughout the race. In addition, some problems came from "chattering" also knew neutralize. To commend the crew who have done a great job. One of the keys of the race was the choice of hard rubber, and the development of the bike, so I think Santi Hernandez has had little to do with this victory. We go to Mugello highly motivated and with the same energy as usual. "

When I saw that Iannone was leaving, I tried to stay calm because I knew that ultimately influence career tires enough. Perhaps I made the mistake of spending too much time trying to overtake Aegerter and Redding. They played their cards, but I could pass. Finally last two laps were very nice with Iannone, which I would liked to have been Pol [Espargaró], because I think it would have been a tight race fought. In any case, we are pleased with how we've done, our labor, and now we have to think in Germany, which will be a race too important. "
Emili Alzamora, Team Manager:
"Marc has done an excellent career. Again, the race has managed to perfection. It was not easy. The team has done a great job as they have managed to give a competitive bike and on the other hand, Marc has used all the resources to take the win. A shame for Pol, that a fall could not be there before, because with Iannone had been the toughest opponent to beat.

"Today has been very difficult. Seeing where we were yesterday, I think it's a great result. In the warm-up we have improved a bit, but we knew the race would suffer. We have seen that Kalex here were very thin and I decided to give one hundred percent in the race, staying calm and thinking of adding the maximum points for the championship. The race was a very high rate from the beginning and with Iannone and maybe if we had not bothered Redding, Pol [Espargaró] had not escaped. He went well, I have set before trying to catch up, but Redding has made me pass, so I think in the end we did a great job. Add 16 points in a circuit that has cost us both is very important, and I have to give special thanks to my team who have been working very hard all weekend, especially yesterday, they were working until two in the morning. "
Emilio Alzamora, Team Manager:
"This has been the most difficult weekend for Marc On the one hand, weather conditions, rain and wind did not help much, but another important factor has been the failure to finish to find the ideal set on this track that Marc would be comfortable with the bike. In addition, a defective exchange, jumped down when faced one of the fast corners of the circuit, made during practice yesterday, Marc went to the ground. All of these circumstances will face Marc has made today's race without having the bike ready. Even so, Santi Hernandez and Marc did a great job during the warm-up in the morning. We knew that the most aspired to the podium and today was even dating Marc has given these conditions the maximum and could add some points that are very important for the championship. Give thanks to the team yesterday were until two o'clock in the box ".
