Quotes from the top three riders in final qualifying

Valentino Rossi (1st): `In the end my good lap from yesterday was enough to take pole so for this I am happy, but I´m not happy with the bike because we needed today to work on the setting for the dry. I have some problems in the wet so I would prefer the sunshine but I know that this weather is very complicated. We´ll just have to wait for the race.´

Max Biaggi (2nd): `Tomorrow I expect and hope for a dry race but you never know because the weather can change so easily here. Today we started dry but after 5 minutes it was wet. We lost almost one hour today and this is not useful to anybody. Tomorrow we must make the right decision with tyres because if you make a wrong one you can only make one stop and it will be very tough for everybody.

Kenny Roberts (3rd): `Being on the front row should be of benefit to us on Saturday because of the changing conditions. If you are at the back you have to come forward which can be tough if the race is cut short. We are confident for the race, we seem to be up there and for sure this is the closest Suzuki have been to the top guys so far this season.´
