Quotes from the final qualifying session

Valentino Rossi (1st): `Today was very difficult but also very exciting. There was a big pressure on me right to the end and Biaggi and Checa made good times. We have had some problems which we have worked on today but they are not completely fixed so tomorrow will be difficult. To make my fifth pole in a row is very exciting, especially in front of my home fans.´

Max Biaggi (2nd): `I feel more positive than at the start of the season but to be winning races we need more work. Of course I am satisfied with second but the gap is big and I presumed Valentino had a bigger margin to improve than he showed yesterday. The set-up is okay and we are using the parts we have to their best potential so I have to be satisfied.´

Carlos Checa (3rd): `I started with bike one yesterday and this morning and we made great progress with the new chassis. Today we kept the same base but found some problems we could not fix. Bike two has a different chassis and fortunately we managed to do some laps, although we could not improve on yesterday.´
