Quotes from the top three riders in first qualifying practice

Jeremy McWilliams (1st): `I´m slowest through the speed trap so we are making up great time on the first two sections. We are using the new chassis which is a little bit more physically difficult to push around but it is a lot more stable on the brakes and opening the throttle. All I need is a little bit of help through the last sections in the race and we shouldn´t be so far away.´

Olivier Jacque (2nd): `It is good to be back at the top but it will only be a short time I imagine because the two circuits where we can match the four strokes are Donington and Sachsenring. We have worked a lot towards this weekend and I think we can stay at the front even in the race.´

Valentino Rossi (3rd): `The bike is actually working quite well round here and we made some good settings right from the start. We need to do more work with the tyres and the suspension to understand the life of the tyre in race conditions. There are places where the tyre spins up but with some work on the gearing we should have a better package for tomorrow and the race.´
