Quotes from the top three riders of the first qualifying session

Fonsi Nieto (1st): `The time we have done today is very good and it is always nice to be on pole. I have a good set-up on both bikes but we still have tomorrow to keep working on them. I think we can improve in two or three areas and bring the lap time down even further´.

Marco Melandri (2nd): `It is great to be on the front row after the first day and I am happy, but what makes me really satisfied with today is the feeling I have had with the bike. I have never had such a good feeling at this circuit. Tomorrow we have some suspension settings and tyres to test on the rear but apart from that we are in great conditions for the race´.

Toni Elias (3rd): `I am starting to get used to this bike properly now and things are coming together really well for me. I am getting better with every race and I think I can do well here. I love Donington Park and I am looking forward to the race on Sunday´.
