Cal Crutchlow: “It's been great, it's good to do something different and especially before the British Grand Prix this weekend, it's going to be a big event for us and these guys see big events every week. To be here at Stamford Bridge is a privilege for me and Maverick and good exposure for MotoGP before the British Grand Prix this weekend.
"I think Kepa, in the position he plays, he's quite alone and with us being alone with the bike it relates a bit. But the pressure the guys have here at Stamford Bridge, most of the crowd are for the team so I think the pressure is enormous...whereas in MotoGP it's shared around a lot with different riders. But overall yeah, being an athlete is being an athlete and you have to try and perform at your maximum."
Maverick Viñales: "Honestly it’s fantastic. I’ve been a big fan of Chelsea since I was a kid and it’s fantastic to be here. It’s a dream come true, you know, something unbelievable!
"Kepa and I speak the same language so it’s very easy. We spoke about the games this season, also our season. It was a good chat, he’s a good guy!
"For sure when you’re at the maximum level of every sport, it’s very similar, you need the same adrenaline. So there are similarities for sure, for sure the speed is different, everything is different. But you know, the pressure, you have to win – so this is very similar too.”
Kepa Arrizabalaga: "It's really cool to meet with two of the biggest riders at the top of MotoGP, it's good to have them here at Stamford Bridge so they can get to know a little more about football!
"Football is very different to MotoGP but I think some things are similar: the adrenaline of the last lap, two riders close together, I think the adrenaline is very similar on the pitch!”
