Quotes from the top three riders on the MotoGP grid

Valentino Rossi (1st): I found some good tyres for the race and then switched to a soft tyre to try for a good lap. I have set the pole record so I am very happy. Pole position is good for me and for my team but the important things is to do well tomorrow. I don´t know if I will win but I will try. ´

Alex Barros: `Valentino looked very smooth on the track and I had to ride very hard to set my time, so I am not sure if I will be able to race him tomorrow. It all depends on the tyres and we will have to wait and see the difference of how they react with the 2 strokes and 4 strokes. Hopefully I can run with Valentino.´

Loris Capirossi: `I am so happy because the team have worked very hard to improve the bike from yesterday. We have improved the chassis a lot but the race will be very difficult. I think the 4 strokes will be very tough to beat at this track´.
