1st Bradley Smith
“This has been a great day for me. At the start I was riding really carefully because the tyres were cold and it wasn’t worth risking it in those conditions. As the laps went by I grew in confidence and when I took the lead I felt comfortable but then I made a couple of mistakes. I had to drop the pace as a result, calm myself down and rethink my strategy. The team have been fantastic again because the bike has been really fast since Friday and we’ve had no problems. When a weekend goes this well it is no coincidence that you have a chance of winning in the race. Mugello is an awesome circuit and my mechanics are Italian so to win here means more to us than just 25 points. We’ve got two wins now, we’re leading the championship and that is all the motivation we need to keep working hard and hopefully score another good result for the team in Barcelona.”

7th Scott Redding
“I had a good start and I stayed in 2nd place on the first corner. During the first ten laps I had a problem with the rear wheel; it was vibrating quite a lot on the fast corners and it was hard to keep up with Simón. In fact I felt more confident when leading the group, but on the fast corners they got away from me. At the end I almost fell on the final corner and I dropped down one position, something happened to the engine and suddenly the revs rose quickly whipping the bike, this even broke a part of the seat. Whatever, it was a good race and I am in good spirits for Catalunya.”

Danny Webb (DNF)
“I’m not happy with the result today! I had a superb start and connected directly to the leading group. I felt comfortable and it was fun to do the slipstream fights. My Aprilia is so fast so I knew I could stay with them. Unfortunaly Iannone broke down and that split up the group. I could lead the second group for a couple of laps but then I hit a bump in the track and crashed. Too bad but at least I know I can be up there but need some luck. Next race I’m confident I can be up there again and this time I have to finish the race.”
