Quotes from the pre-event press conference

Valentino Rossi: `It has been a very good year but this race is still very important to me because I have never finished on the podium at Valencia. We tested here one month ago and the results were not good but I am confident because we have solved the clutch problems we have had over the last two or three races which meant I couldn´t brake how I like to´.

Marco Melandri: `I have had a lot of parties in the last week. To tell the truth, I have partied every night! Me and Fonsi had a very tough battle in Australia but it was also very correct and I think the public enjoyed it, so hopefully we can do the same here. I will be speaking to my manager tonight and hope to announce my decision for next year this weekend, although it will definitely be in MotoGP. People are talking about Yamaha but I have other options too´.

Fonsi Nieto: `I watched the Phillip Island race on television since I got back to Spain and I think that even though I came second it was the best race of my life. Second place in the championship is safe so I am here to have fun with the fans and finish an excellent season for me in the best possible way´.
