Quotes from the top three riders on the grid

Fonsi Nieto (1st): `To make pole position is great but all weekend I have been thinking only about the race because at the last four Grand Prix the bike has been good in practice and then we have had problems on Sunday. Now I am 25 points behind Marco which is not so much but it could prove to be a lot if I make any mistakes tomorrow.´

Marco Melandri (2nd): `Like in every qualifying session Fonsi was very fast today in the last five minutes. Today I am happy because we had a lot of problems with the bike this morning but we have improved in the afternoon. I have been sick and even though I am feeling better I think it will be very difficult tomorrow and at half distance I will be feeling very tired. ´

Sebastian Porto (3rd): `I am very happy to be on the front row again. Today we did plenty of work on the bike – it was probably faster yesterday but now at least we have a good setting for tomorrow. Hopefully I can be on the podium again.´
