Quotes from the protagonists of 250 QP2

Fonsi Nieto: `The is the first race of the season so it would be impossible to have got off to a better start than pole position here. I rode the whole session on race tyres and then just switched to a softer tyre in the last minute and that helped me to take the third pole of my career. I am very happy.

Randy de Puniet: `This is my best ever qualifying position and it is a nice feeling. The team has been great in testing and now we have a good chance in the race. Hopefully things will go as well tomorrow as they have done today.

Marco Melandri: `I am over my injury problems now and ready to fight. I am a bit angry today because I found Debon in middle of track when I was on a fast lap and he was going slow. I think it will be a nice race tomorrow though as long as the conditions are dry.´
