The final round of the World Championship takes place at Magny Cours in France on Sunday 7th October.

Jules: "That was one of my hardest races so I am really happy to win. I had big problems braking at the start of the race but then I calmed myself down and really concentrated. Then at the end I relaxed for the last three laps and was able to do good lap times. For me the target was to do my best and win if I could, I was not thinking about the Championship. I will be more relaxed now the title is decided for my home race at Magny Cours and will want a good result as I think I will have a lot of fans coming to watch. "

Ronan: "That was a good result after what has been a really tough weekend for me. Starting 20th I got a bad start and was 24-25th. I got up to seventh, and finished ninth and I am happy with it, it is decent points. There is one more round and I want to qualify better. Today though, it has been a great race, my PTR Honda has been amazing and I am happy."

Martin: "I don't know what happened but right from the start I couldn't get down the gears and on the first two laps I ran off the track twice. The only way round it was to brake very early into every corner and that didn't help me to get a good result - which was always going to be difficult from 29th on the grid."

Simon Buckmaster, PTR Honda Team Manager: "Jules did everything he could to win the race. Kenan did what he had to do to win the Championship. PTR has secured the runners-up spot and we hope to win the last race and come back fighting next year and win the title. Ronan gave himself a lot to do by not qualifying well but rode a great race and did a good job. Martin had trouble with gear selection - but it was always going to be difficult from 29th on the grid. He stuck to his task and finished which is credit to him."
