Quotes from the top three riders of the final qualifying session

Fonsi Nieto (1st): `I came here after a very special race in front of my home fans two weeks ago but I have to forget that now. I have done many laps and have a good rhythm for the race. I am very happy with the tyres and I hope to be fighting for the victory in the race.´

Randy de Puniet (2nd): `I was giving everything to try and get pole position in front of my home crowd but I crashed with five minutes to go. I tried to keep going with the same bike but it was not in good condition and that is why I crashed again. However, I am happy to be in second position for my home Grand Prix.´

Roberto Locatelli (3rd): `I am happy to be in third position but I don´t know how the race will go because there are lots of riders who are very fast here. I hope to make a good race and I think it will be very close.´
