Quotes from the top three riders on the provisional grid

Quotes from the top three riders on the provisional grid

Steve Jenkner (1st): `It is a bit windy and I had to follow Poggiali up the hills otherwise I would never have made this time. I am really pleased with my lap time because I looked in my scrapbook this morning and I was 17th on the grid here last year. I remember finding it really hard to overtake to I need to get a good start on Sunday.´

Manuel Poggiali (2nd): `I did my lap time without having to follow anyone so it is okay. Vincent is a long way back but I am not bothered about him – I am concentrating on winning this race. A race is a race so we can ever know what will happen but I am confident.´

Alex de Angelis (3rd): `I am very happy because we have had problems in Motegi and Sepang and it has been tough to sort them out. With this bike I should be qualifying on the front row, or maximum on the second row so it is good to put the bike where it belongs. I am confident for the weekend.´
