Marquez: In qualifying and warm up I was able to ride 32 high / 33 low. In the race he improve and was able to do 32 high. I saw at the beginning that I would push in the last laps because it was impossible to open up a gap.

Lorenzo: A little bit the rear tyre was dropping on the right. Anyway I made one of my best races. I had a very high pace. I throw away all my energy to escape Marc but he had 1 or 2 tenths in hand. Finally he was a little stronger.

Rossi: It was a very demanding race. I'm very happy because I lose just 4 points Jorge. I was fast to catch the 4th place and after with Pedrosa was difficult. It was a great battle and I'm very happy I beat him.

Smith didn't quite close in on Iannone but he gave it a really good go. He skimmed 0.8s off Iannone in those closing laps. Again, the top Satellite rider in what is proving to be a stunning season.

A stunning achievement by Marquez, who takes 9 points out of Rossi's title lead. It's down to 56 points. Surely he couldn't, could he? He is still yet to lose a race in MotoGP in the USA. Incredible.
