Quotes from the top three riders after the first qualifying session

Quotes from the top three riders after the first qualifying session

Manuel Poggiali (1st): `We have being trying two different bikes today. One with the new chassis and one with the old chassis. I set a fast time with the old chassis but the new one is also good so I don´t know which we will use yet. In any case I am satisfied with the bike and my lap time. The track was a bit dirty today so hopefully all these factors will improve and we will go faster tomorrow.´

Pablo Nieto (2nd): `It is satisfying to be on the front row and I feel comfortable with the bike and the team. We still have a lot of work to do tomorrow but we will try our hardest to get the best possible grid position for Sunday´s race´.

Dani Pedrosa (3rd): `We have had quite a few problems with the bike and we are working continuously to put them right. The track surface was very dirty today but I am satisfied with the work we have done. I am not thinking about pole position, just concentrating on setting the bike to its maximum´.
