Quotes from the front row of the grid in MotoGP

Valentino Rossi: `For sure it is an advantage to start from first position but it is not like a real 100% pole because the coditions were very strange. Yesterday we had 10 minutes of dry conditions before the rain and today the conditions were useless because it wasn't wet or dry so we went out on the track for nothing. I am lucky because I was fastest in the wet this morning but tomorrow for sure I prefer dry.´ Max Biaggi: `I am quite satisfied with the result beczause the conditions were very difficult and changed drastically from the morning to the afternoon. For the dry conditions I am quite confident and the set-up is okay, but we need to work more on the wet setting because the bike is new. Anyway, I will do my best.´ Tohru Ukawa: `Yesterday I made the most of the dry laps to set the third fastest time and it was impossible to improve today. I have not been on the front row for a long time at Suzuka so for this I am happy.´ Carlos Checa (4th): `I think my wage will be a little less at end of this month less month because I did not do so much work today! Seriously though, we could not test either the wet or dry set-up so that is why I did not go out.´
