**Vittoriano Guareschi (Team Manager)
** "Today I'm particularly sorry to have to talk about a race in which once again, we weren't able to capitalize on our potential. In practice, both Vale and Nicky demonstrated that they were able to ride this track well in the conditions that we had for the race, but after they both started well, they really were victims of a classic first-turn crash. It happens, but it hurt Ducati worse than the others. There's not much else to say. Now we'll focus on the work that's about to start for 2012."
