Roger Harvey:HRC General Manager - MXGP:
“Our target for this year is to be on the podium at each race, so I’m happy with what we achieved today. Gautier rode a very controlled race and really used his head, especially when he was under a bit of pressure.
Gautier Paulin:
 Race Result: 4th/3rd Championship position: 3rd“It’s the first race in the World Championship for me with Team HRC so I’m really happy to start the season like this, and it’s always good to be on the box. We’re not at the top, but the season is long so it’s already good to be in third place. For sure you always want better but it’s been a very smooth first grand prix. I’m really happy to work with my crew. We improve every time I go on the bike so we’re in good shape.”
