teammate Tony Cairoli bade farewell to the series in front of his home crowd . “ I ’ m super happy but at the same time , I feel bad for the other two guys ,” Herlings commented after his victory . I want to thank both of them for a great championship . The bad thing about our sport is that only one can win , but they have been great and I have such respect for both of them . To go 1-1 today was special . I haven ’ t slept for a week thinking about what could happen , what might happen and this-and-that . This wasn ’ t an easy championship . All three of us kept charging until the last moto , especially me and Romain in these last two races , and the pressure was on . I didn ’ t break and I made the championship happen . It was the most difficult one ever , so many ups-and-downs , and I ’ ve needed nerves of steel these last weeks , but we made it .” While much of the attention was focused on the title contest , Tony Cairoli was enjoying his last Grand Prix of a magnificent full-time racing career . Noisily cheered by large sections of the partisan crowd at the venue where he delivered victory for Team Italy only six weeks beforehand , Cairoli signed off with 15th overall and a second moto result of 10th . In the first race he crashed while trying to overtake Jeremy Seewer and had to retire with a broken gear shifter . He was 6th overall in the championship standings .
