Although Casey Stoner was happy about his second-fastest time in free practice, the '07 world champion was concerned about Silverstone's bumpy surface.
Jorge Lorenzo: 'It is a real pity because the world championship without Valentino loses something and also for me to fight for the title against him has more value than without. It’s a bad thing because I enjoy a lot fighting with him for the victory. You can learn a lot of things racing with him because he is a teacher for all of us. To beat him is a big pleasure but now he’s crashed and it is a completely new championship.'

Loris Capirossi: "“We improved a bit today compared to yesterday, but still we don’t have the grip we want and we are really struggling. When we try to get a bit more entry grip it feels like we are going to lose the front and overall it feels like a game and we have to try and play the best we can to work it out. We know we are quite limited in the cold conditions at Silverstone and that is a similar thing to last year. We have never resolved this fully, but we do keep trying and the whole team is making the maximum effort to sort this out."

Colin Edwards: "I know there were some concerns about bumps. There are some out there but definitely no more than any other track. I'm only 12th which isn't fantastic but I know there is a lot more to come. The bike at the moment just feels a bit heavy and not just in the change of direction. It is a bit of an effort just to get the bike back upright from maximum lean angle, but we know we can make it better for tomorrow and get it feeling easier."

It will be an interesting race tomorrow because it is one thing to ride on your own at a new circuit and another thing altogether to mix it up in a group. We’ll find out exactly where we are when the lights go out tomorrow.”
Jorge Lorenzo: "I never dreamt of taking three wins from five races but here we are and I am feeling very strong mentally at this moment. I want to thank my team, Yamaha and Bridgestone for this victory."
Jorge Lorenzo: "This was an important day for me and an important win, because I felt so strong and I enjoyed riding my Yamaha so much. I had a different feeling today; I felt that it was going to be a good race. It was quite hard to be fast at the start and the first lap with Dani was difficult, but once I got past him I felt very relaxed and comfortable. I thought he would follow me for a bit longer but he didn't and then I was on my own, so I just had to focus on myself; I didn't even know who was behind me!"
Jorge Lorenzo (#99) ran away with the British GP by 6.743 seconds, taking his first UK win in the premier class at Silverstone circuit.

Jorge Lorenzo: “One of the more important things has been my change of mentality because after Mugello I was a bit worried about the crash of Valentino and how him not being there would affect my mind. But I just enjoyed my job and like this I can get what I want at the end of the year. We have to be patient and keep working.”
Despite enjoying such a massive advantage in the title chase, Lorenzo is refusing to get too carried away with talk of becoming only the second Spaniard in history to lift the MotoGP crown

Ben Spies: “I didn’t expect to get my first podium so quickly. I got a decent start but once I got by Dani Pedrosa and Simoncelli I just tried to stay on the back of the group during the battle for the podium. Once I realized I could stay in contention I just tried to save the tire as much as I could and it all worked out."
