ANDREA DOVIZIOSO - 4th - World Championship position: 3rd with 63 points
"After the warm up session in the wet the conditions during the race were tricky, especially when it started to rain with 12 laps to go. I didn't have a perfect start and this complicated the race. In the first laps with a full tank, I didn't have good stability in the front. With the hard tyres the traction was not so good compared to Lorenzo, Spies and Rossi who were riding with soft tyres. Even if we improved compared to Le Mans in terms of lap times, I'm not happy finishing 4th position, five seconds behind the winner. Today we were fast and I think that with a good start we could have at least fought for the podium. I'm sorry for my team as they worked hard during the whole weekend. Now I look forward to next weekend's race in Silverstone, a circuit that I like and where I hope to get a good result".
