Q: What happened?
Dani Pedrosa: I hit a bump. I was entering with the brake and I hit a bump with the front wheel, and I just lost the front.
Q: What does this mean for the championship? Can you still catch Jorge?
DP: I'm sure it's very difficult to catch Jorge. With his races, he's doing very good. It's three races ahead, so it's kind of difficult. But we have to think about our own race weekends and try do do the best result possible.
Q: You won last year here. Is it a big disappointment for you to crash in the lead?
DP: Of course, it's a disappointment, because I crashed, I don't like to not finish races.
Q: Valentino said he almost crashed at that corner. How difficult is that bump to go through?
DP: You can see. You go or you are gone.
Q: There's no chance to recover?
Q: And before that, what was your feeling about the race?
DP: I think I was doing a good race. Because in practice, Stoner and Lorenzo were clearly one step ahead, and this time I was ahead. So I'm happy about this, unhappy about the crash.
Q: And you would have had a chance to fight for the win?
DP: I think I was on the point of doing that.
