Quotes from the top three riders on the provisional grid

Quotes from the top three riders on the provisional grid

Manuel Poggiali (1st): `The new parts we have this weekend are working well. The engine is a lot better throughout and we have improved acceleration and top speed. We must continue to work hard for the rest of the weekend because there are a lot of riders who are not so far away on times.´

Youichi Ui (2nd): `I have spent all season trying to overcome the technical problems we have had, so this weekend I decided that maybe now is the time to forget worrying about it and work with what we have got. I pushed really hard today and I think with some setting changes I can go even faster tomorrow.´

Steve Jenkner (3rd): `I am showing some consistency in qualifying and that is pleasing because that is what I lacked last year. This track has never been good for me so I came here in a negative state of mind but I am the best of the rest behind the Gilera and the Derbi so hopefully that can continue tomorrow.´
