Quotes from the top three riders from the final qualifying session

Fonsi Nieto (1st): `Of course I am very happy to be on pole again in my own country and in front of my family and friends. Tomorrow it will be a very hard race because the heat will make it very tough on the tyres but I am happy we have found the right rubber to cope with that.´

Marco Melandri (2nd): `I think tomorrow will be a very nice race, but also very difficult because of the conditions. I don´ t think we will see one rider walk away with it – there will be a very big group at the front and it will be a nice battle.´

Roberto Locaetelli (3rd): `I was able to put a very soft tyre on and produce a fast lap at the end, but we have had a lot of problems with the chassis and I don´t think it will be any use over race distance. Tomorrow I think we will have to try a new chassis in the morning warm-up and see what happens.´
