First of all, I want to congratulate Fabio on achieving his dream of becoming a MotoGP World Champion. The way he handled a very tense situation today once again underlines that he is a worthy champion, and it shows how much he has grown. He doesn't crack under pressure and instead turns a difficult race starting from P15 into a brilliant fourth place finish and a title win.

I want to congratulate and thank the team members and Yamaha engineers for their dedication. Riding a race in the dry with little to no dry track time in the sessions before is hard to do at any time, let alone when the Championship Title is at stake. But the whole team pulled together. They contributed so much to this title win, and I can't wait to celebrate with them.

Lastly, I want to say ‘Well done’ to Franky. He rode such a strong first half of the race, which is not at all easy to do when you're still recovering from such a serious leg injury. We knew keeping up the pace for 27 laps would be very hard for him, but to see his potential as a rider at the top level of motorsports in the first half of the race was really nice to see. We know that it's only a matter of time before he is fully healed and able to fight for the full race length again. He will soon be back at the front where he belongs.

The next races will be ‘easier’ for us, because we will have less pressure, but we still want to be there at the front to see if we can also win the Team and Constructor Titles. We will try to wrap up this season in the best way possible.
