Quotes from the top three riders on the provisional grid

Quotes from the top three riders on the provisional grid

Marco Melandri (1st): `Today we have found the best setting for our bike and we are ready for the race. Tomorrow we will try out a couple of different things but basically we know our direction. At the end of the session I missed a gear on the straight when Fonsi came past me, and we had a bit of fun´.

Toni Elias (2nd): `We have had a few problems today but we seem to have most of them sorted out now. I have bad memories of this track but generally I like it and I think I can go fast here. We are close to Melandri and that is the most important thing´.

Randy de Puniet (3rd): `Rio was a bit of a disappointment but I am the top kit Aprilia here today so I have to be happy. The weather is good so hopefully it can stay that way and I think if it does I can repeat this performance tomorrow´.
