Quotes from the top three riders in the first qualifying session

Manuel Poggiali (1st): `In the final two laps I was very fast. I changed the rear tyre and had much better feeling, but for the moment I don´t have the perfect set-up for my bike. We will be trying to achieve that tomorrow. Hopefully it will stay dry so that we can complete our work, but if it doesn´t at least we have a good qualifying position. In England you never know what will happen!´

Dani Pedrosa (2nd): `I could have set a better lap but at the end of the session I had some problems with the handlebars, because they were moving around when I was opening the gas. The bike kept tucking in and I ended up with my arms almost crossed over so hopefully we can find a good solution tomorrow´.

Youichi Ui (3rd): `I have a new front fork which is very similar to the one I used last year, and my feeling is much better. Tomorrow we have planned work on the chassis and the set-up for the race. It is strange that I am 0.2 seconds quicker than my qualifying time last year, but I am one place further back on the grid´.
