Quotes from the top three riders on the first day of qualifying

Valentino Rossi (1st): `My reflections of today are not so bad, but we have had some problems with the settings which we have tried to fix. By the end of the session things were better but still not perfect. I don´t really like the changes they have made to the track and it is very difficult to ride a four stroke here.´

Max Biaggi (2nd): `We had a crash this morning when I lost the front. It wasn´t my fault but it destroyed the bike and we had to start over again. I know we can improve on suspension settings and make the bike more easy to change direction because this is a weak point for us, but it is very important to be on the front row because you never know what the weather will be like tomorrow.´

Kenny Roberts (3rd): `We eliminated a lot of problems in recent tests in Barcelona and I think the stability of the bike is a major advantage for us now. The speed down the straightaways and fast sections is excellent and it is very good under braking. I could have been on pole if it was a straightaway and not a racetrack!´
