Valentino Rossi :

´ I expected Biaggi to be very fast and I am not surprised that he and his team did a very good job today and he set a very good lap time. When the rain fell a few minutes before the end of practice, it prevented me from trying to regain pole position but I cannot honestly say I would have been able to do it.

Seriously, I cannot say I don´t care about pole position, I would prefer to have it but the main thing is that we have found a good setting for the machine, that enabled me to put together many laps in a good time.

On this track the start is very important because passing is very difficult. So it will be vital to be in the lead group on the exit from the first corner.Unfortunately the weather forecast is not so good and I really hope it doesn´t rain because in that case the race is absolutely unpredictable. ´
