2020 Virtual Grand Prix of Spain Live

Vinales: "The race started so bad, because I crashed in the first corner, and then I crashed again when I was following Alex! I pushed too much. Then I was able to concentrate, did some fast laps, but I didn't expect Pecco would make a mistake. I took profit and the race victory. I enjoyed it and I hope everyone at home and the other riders enjoyed it as well, not forgetting this race was for Two Wheels for Life (twowheelsforlife.org)."

Alex Marquez: "I'm happy to have a good time with my colleagues and make some entertainment for the people at home. I crashed then I recovered, then again... Many crashes for everyone in this race! But we had fun and this is most important."

3 May, 2020 - 16:00

Bagnaia: "I was first with Alex closing, then he crashed and for some reason after that I started making mistakes. Anyway, it was a great race, fun."

Marc Marquez: "I waited for Danilo and we battled but he touched me and he crashed! The most important thing is we enjoyed it!"

Quartararo: "I made the fastest lap but I think I averaged one crash per lap today!"
