Quotes from the final qualifying session

Franco Battaini (1st): `Today was very hard because the conditions were extremely hot. I saw my time was 1´54.3 and I was very surprised because I thought this would be difficult. We are in good shape for the race because the bike is perfect.´

Sebastian Porto (2nd): `We have worked hard all weekend for this position, also in tests at Barcelona last week. We have found a good setting and although we still need to improve further it is great to be on the front row with a Yamaha at what is really an Aprilia circuit.´

Toni Elias (3rd): `I am very happy because this year I have changed to a 250 and it is a difficult situation for me. Up until Le Mans I had some chassis problems, particularly with steering, but now I am starting to find my settings. Tomorrow I hope to at least go with the front group and we will see what happens.´
