"I am happy - has said Talmacsi - not only for the splendid victory but also in the set up of the motorbike, is finally very ease to me and I drive my RSA as I want after all the problems in the beginning of the season. The crash of Di Meglio has changed the situation of the World championship. The competition has been very hard, the heat was unbearable and the bike slipped a lot. Already from the tests I knew to have a good rithm so I have immediately pushed strong and only Smith has tried to remain behind me, then in the end of the race after a small error I have forced again and I have succeeded in detaching him and conquering this important victory."
"I am very happy - has declared Corsi - to climb on the podium in the home race is always a beautiful emotion. The race has been difficult, I had problems after the start and I lost the 'train' of Talmacsi. Anyway I have recovered sixteen points and the struggle for the world title is reopened. I have to recover other points starting from Indianapolis."
