Q: We seem to have gone from four Aliens to just one.
Jorge Lorenzo: But not the same, you know? Because in Mugello, it was Dani. It depends, not all the races will be like this.
We have the luck to be always in front in every practice of all the races, we are always in first position, second position, maybe third, and this gives me the confidence that I know that in the race, I can finish first or second. Also in this race, I knew I had a good pace.
Q: You have a huge lead in the championship. Are you thinking about race wins now, or about the championship?
JL: I don't think a rider can be racing thinking about the points. Because when you think about the points, it's impossible to win at this level, in the MotoGP class. So if we want to continue being on the podium and winning races, we have to think about enjoying every race, every practice.
Q: What do you think about Dovizioso's second place in the championship? Is Dovizioso your biggest rival, or is it Stoner or Pedrosa?
JL: You know for me, Pedrosa's faster than Dovizioso. But for me, Dovizioso is always there in the top four every race. So like in 250s, Dovizioso is the man of consistency, and maybe at the end of the championship he can beat Dani. But for me Dani has a little bit more talent, and he can win races.
Q: Stoner had a chance to do a good race, he got a bad start, he was last in the first corner but then he was very fast.
JL: Yes, you know he could be second, because he finished very close to Andrea.
Q: Did you expect Stoner to have no podiums after five races?
JL: You know, I have a lot of respect for the talent of Casey. But sometimes the riders have this crisis of confidence, and if you don't have things clearly in your mind, it's difficult to be in front in this class.
Q: What did you think of the performance of Spies today? To get a podium this quickly is very impressive.
JL: Yes, I like him. Because he's aggressive and he's very concentrated, during every practice, during all the weekend. And you can see it, he has clear goals, and it's only a question of time before he can be on the podium consistently.
Q: You finished nearly 7 seconds ahead of your rivals. What did you do to set up your bike to achieve this? Was it easy to find a setup?
JL: It was good enough to win today! But we all have problems, always. Today we had problems, and we have to speak to the Japanese. Especially we need to improve the engine, because we don't have enough power compared to Ducati and Honda. So we have a lot of work to do.
