Quotes from the main protagonists of the day

Alex Debon (3rd): `This morning we worked hard to solve several problems with the chassis and the engine setting. For the qualifying we improved the bike and I started quickly with dry tyres. Finally I got a good position but we still need to improve the engine for tomorrow.´

Sebastian Porto (6th): `We were right to go out on slicks because we made the most of the few laps possible whilst the track was in decent condition before the rain came back. The most important thing is that in the free practice this morning and in the few dry laps we completed in the afternoon we have gathered important conclusions which proved that we are on the right path in terms of bike set-up.´

Toni Elias (not qualified): `When I went to set a fast lap and lower my time it began raining on the back section of the circuit and I came into the box. It turned out to be a mistake because I was on a good lap and if I didn´t stop I would have qualified.´
