Rossi wins but Kenny conquers.

Race winner Rossi and new World Champion Roberts celebrated in style on the slowing down lap by stopping and doing burnouts together, before Roberts' mechanics hastily stuck a number one on his Suzuki.

An ecstatic Roberts said afterwards “I've dreamed about being 500cc champion since I was a kid. It's been a 27-year season to get to this point. The championship means everything to me.” Father Kenny senior added, ''Winning the 500-class title is a hell of an achievement. Not many people can say they've done that. He's become one of a great series of champions from America.”

Team manager Garry Taylor explained how the championship had been a two-year plan, “The first year was to adapt the bike - Warren Willing and the race department interpreting his feedback and getting modifications to the race track as soon as possible. He finished second overall, so we were on the right track. The second year was to win the title.”

Rossi put a brave face on any post race disappointments he may have had at the loss of the championship and thought instead about how and the team he had improved over the last few races stating “It was a very important win”. Alex Barros second in front of his home crowd said, “I am very happy its my first podium in Brazil”.
