Quotes from the top three riders after the first qualifying session

Loris Capirossi (1st): `I am so happy with my performance today. The team worked really hard to fix some problems we have been having and I owe this to them. The track is not as fast as it was in winter testing because of the heat and I think the four-strokes will be a lot faster tomorrow.´

Sete Gibernau (2nd): `Loris was looking very fast in Mugello and I followed him a few times in qualifying. He was on it again today and when he passed me on the last couple of laps he looked at me as if to say `follow me!´ It was a great lap and the new Michelins were just fantastic.´

Tohru Ukawa (3rd): `I am pretty pleased with my performance today and the provisional front row will do for me. We were making slight changes throughout the session and I think most of them are carrying us in the right direction.
