Quotes from the top three riders on the provisional grid

Toni Elias (1st): `I am not dwelling on the victory last week at Motegi. In Japan I was still floating but since we arrived in Malaysia I have been focused only on this weekend. The session was very strange but I managed to get a good couple of laps in at the end and squeeze out a good time.´

Marco Melandri (2nd): `Only the last five minutes were in the dry and I only managed one lap, while Elias and Nieto managed two or three, so we have a lot of work still to do with the tyres. I am racing for the championship on Sunday. It would be nice to win if it is possible but I want the title now so I will do whatever it takes.´

Sebastian Porto (3rd): `The conditions were very complicated and we had to use lots of different tyres. When it dried a bit we put the slick on and set a decent time, but it was still slippery so I am sure we could have gone faster. I am happy with third at this stage and as long as nothing strange happens with the weather we should improve tomorrow´
