Marco Melandri: "I’m not very happy with the first part of the race here at Jerez. It was hard to ride. I made a good start but I didn’t feel comfortable riding, when I hit the brakes the bike was very unstable. It got better as the race went on, but my engine mapping lost me some power."
Marco Simoncelli: "[Jerez] was a good race and I was still very fast at the end; I even felt that at seven laps from the flag I was a bit stronger than the rest of the group. But when my bike started to slide the other riders upped their pace. It’s another eleventh place, but a more positive one.”
Randy de Puniet: "We are a bit disappointed because we aimed to get a different result at Jerez. After a very positive qualification I got a bad start from the second row and ended the first lap in 12th position. From there it was a very hard race for me!"
Shoya Tomizawa: "I gave it full gas. I tried but Toni is so fast. We had a good three days here at Jerez – good Friday, good Saturday, good Sunday – so now we hope we can find a good solution when we get to Le Mans."

Alvaro Bautista: "I am happy to finish in the top 10 at Jerez, this is a good result, but I think if the bike was like practice I could have done better."

Loris Capirossi: "I started the Jerez race quite aggressive and I overtook a few guys – which was good – and the bike was working well, but I crashed on the third lap. I tried to pick up the bike to finish the race, but the engine was off so that was the end for me."
Colin Edwards: "I think I've had one good race at Jerez in my entire career and today wasn't it. This weekend has been a struggle and I've never been comfortable on the bike to show the pace I know I am capable of."
Now, if I can take it sort of easy out here I can get this baby healed up for some more motocross. What? Yamaha's destroyed all my free YZ MX bikes... - Jerez
Casey Stoner: "I’m disappointed with today’s performance at Jerez. We started the weekend strongly but only got worse compared to our rivals as the sessions went by and we were never able to improve on the base set-up that we started out with."

Jorge Lorenzo: "It has always been one of my dreams to win a MotoGP race in Spain and this was like a movie, everything that could possibly happen did!"
Valentino Rossi: "I made no mistakes and I'm happy about my race in the circumstances, these 16 points are very important. At the end I had a front-row seat to the Spanish party and I admit I was sorry not to be involved."
Ben Spies: "I got a really good start and was right behind Casey but pretty much from the first lap I knew I had a problem. I tried to ride around the problem but at the end of the day I wasn't going to be scoring any points at Jerez and I'd have risked crashing if I'd continued."
Nicky Hayden: "Fourth place is no disaster but I was hoping to stay closer to the top three at Jerez and put up a bit of a fight. I’m not happy to be nine seconds adrift but we’re trying to build something here and we’ve had another solid weekend."

Ben Spies: “I'm super happy with today. It's 11th and I'm over a second off the pace but after only one hour at this track I'm really happy and I don't think it could have gone too much better than it did."
