Quotes from the top three riders on the grid

Arnaud Vincent (1st): `The bike is in great shape and I am feeling comfortable. Poggiali and Pedrosa both crashed out but I think this was to do with track conditions rather than pressure. It was a lot cooler this afternoon than it was this morning and I had a couple of scares myself.´

Manuel Poggiali (2nd): `The crash came at a bad time because I was on a fast lap, but anyway we are satisfied with the work we have done on the tyres and suspension. This was the most important thing because we are concentrating on the race more than the grid.´

Dani Pedrosa (3rd): `It was a pretty nasty crash but fortunately there was no real damage. It is hurting a lot at the moment and I hope it is better for the race. I was on a pole lap so it is a shame but the front row is okay.´
