"It is a special emotion to win here in Italy - said the winner - My rivals were all fast, too fast even, I hope they will go slower because I am old! We worked well to sort the bike, two races ago I was 20th and today first, now the important thing is to continue to stay in front ”.

Vietti was in any case satisfied: “I'm happy with 2nd place because I was unlucky last week, while today I had a great race. On the last lap I tried to stay ahead, but Romano was very good. "
