Quotes from the top three riders on the grid

Max Biaggi (1st): `I am so satisfied because this was the last chance to take pole position in 2002 and I put my Yamaha there so I am very happy. We worked well on Friday was fast and consistent this morning. I tried a different set-up but it was not a good way for me so we changed back to tune the set-up we had on Friday. I pushed hard and got the bike working well so I am very, very happy – especially because I promised the Tissot watch to my physiotherapist Marino!

Alex Barros (2nd): `This morning we had a problem with the engine and didn´t do any testing – only five or six laps. We tried to concentrate on the race tyre this afternoon and we don´t have it clear yet but the rhythm was not bad. In the end I went for a soft tyre and came close to yesterday´s time. In any case we worked well, I am happy, and I am confident we will be competitive tomorrow.´

Daijiro Kato (3rd): `As far as the machine is concerned it is getting better and is not as bad as yesterday. We also concentrated on tyres, doing long runs today in preparation for the race. I don´t have many worries about tomorrow. All I have to do is concentrate and try and get my best result of the season.´
