Fiorenzo Caponera (Team Manager)

125 c.c. - 1st position (25 points)
"We have obtained still an uproarious victory with Arnaud... under a downpour... as to the debut to Suzuka. Only that to the beginning of the World Championship Arnaud was a surprise... a Rider that must already be made champion wriggles... but then subsequently the dark for races and races... A capricious and inconstant Rider... had told me the "guru" of the two wheels, when I had engaged him hopeful to Lugano... in a cold morning of December. Estoril... a confirmation... a definite Pilot, reliable, firmly in head to the Championship, cold and concentrated as the blade of a razor; now it seems impossible to withstand him... now he will face a race after the other his challenge for the final victory... and everybody will say that... it was known , Vincent has always been a strong Rider... mature and reliable."

250 cc.
"Franco, in the hell of rain of the Estoril, has not surely been lucky. The Rider has immediately planned the race in aggressive way, trying to take advantage of the fact that the official motorbikes under the broadsides of rain seemed equal to his one. And so Franco has been suffered among the best, first quarter, then third, then second always driving his motorbike among clouds of of water that stuck on the glasses of his helmet... without even not knowing that adversary you have before. A harmless crash has forced Battaini to withdraw of quite a lot positions, he has tried a desperate recovery when another fall has put out definitely him from the game.... when six turns missed at the end of the race."
