Quotes from the top three riders on the grid

Max Biaggi (1st): `We have been working with two different tyre compounds and have tried a different front fork with a bigger diameter. This afternoon I switched to my second bike and it seemed a lot better so I stuck with it throughout the session. After the summer break this is the best way to come back and I am very happy but it is only Saturday.´

Daijiro Kato (2nd): `This weekend is my first time on the four stroke V5 and to be honest it has been much easier than I expected. I was quite comfortable today, we found a good set-up with the suspension and tyres so I am quite happy with second position.´

Valentino Rossi (3rd): `In the end I am quite happy with third place because I am near to the times of Biaggi and Kato. Yesterday we lost a lot of time on settings so today we had to work a lot for the race and didn´t have time for a qualifying lap. Still, we are on the front row, we have a setting for the race so it is not so bad.´
