Quotes from the top three riders of the first qualifying session

Alex Barros (1st): `It is very nice to see that I am the fastest ever rider to lap at Donington. I must give the compliment of that lap to my team because everything worked so well. In the morning practice I felt very good and was able to work on tyres and my setting for the race. I hope we can improve a couple of things tomorrow and set up the bike perfectly for the race.´

Kenny Roberts (2nd): `I think we´re better off than at the last race. We have the same stuff parts and motor-wise, but it feels a bit easier to go quicker here than at Assen. The track is less demanding on the chassis, with more normal corners that you just go into then ride out of. I was able to turn fast laps at the end of my runs with the tyres. We also tried the new Michelin front tyre, which seems better´.

Max Biaggi (3rd): `This morning´s session was a little complicated as I fell, the crash was a bit of a strange one because I was going pretty slow. But we changed our suspension set-up for this afternoon and I was able to lap a second and a half faster, which suggests that we're moving in the right direction´.
