Quotes from the top three riders on the grid

Fonsi Nieto (1st): `I am very happy with my bike and we have worked a lot on my rhythm. We didn´t get to do many laps in practice because of the wind but we managed to get a good set-up in the end. Tomorrow I have to take a few risks and go for the win which would keep alive my title chances going into the final race´.

Marco Melandri (2nd): `As far as I am concerned I have to win the race tomorrow. Fonsi is very fast and I had bad luck last week but I feel good. The race will be very difficult with the wind but hopefully it will stay dry´.

Sebastian Porto (3rd): `Yesterday and today we had problems with the bike – particularly in the chassis. The wind made it hard for everyone but we managed to improve the bike and I was able to set a good lap. Hopefully I can fight for the victory tomorrow´.
