Max Biaggi: "I think it must be a Guinness world record to break a foot so badly without crashing! I tried everything I could to get onto the track today, but it was impossible to race under these conditions. The pain was just too severe. I am very disappointed. This is the first race that I've missed in 19 years of my career."

Leon Camier: "It was truly dangerous to run Race 2. There were puddles everywhere, visibility was terribly reduced and the situation got worse lap after lap. Other riders also had trouble in the turn where I slid. There was a virtual river running across the asphalt. It's a shame, I think they could have stopped the race earlier given the track conditions, but there's no use complaining about it now."

During Race 2 rain became a major issue and eventually shortened the contest to just 13 laps.

Tom Sykes: "In Race 2, conditions were diabolical and it was a battle to stay upright but I kept things smooth and just kept my concentration. In the end it was the right decision to stop the race and I'm delighted to take my first World Superbike Championship victory and to reward the team for all their hard work."
