Quotes from the first three riders on the grid

Alex Barros (1st): `The main point is that the machine was very good and we have a good rhythm for tomorrow. Yesterday I was slower than Valentino but today we lapped consistently in the 2´05s which is good. I didn´t expect to be on pole because we had no settings and started this weekend from scratch, so a big thanks to all my team-´

Max Biaggi (2nd): `Today I did my best from the moment we changed the suspension and found a good compromise. It is difficult to make it perfect. I think Alex got his best time following my lines, so he can pay for the pizza tonight. The tyres are spinning up a lot but we can´t do anything about that.´

Daijiro Kato (3rd): `I was a lot better today than yesterday and we found some good settings. My only regret is that I didn´t get another fast lap in at the end but my neck was really hurting from this morning. Considering that it is a good job and tomorrow I think I can fight for victory. We will see what happens.´
