Quotes from the provisional front row

Youichi Ui (1st): `I feel at 100% and the bike is really competitive. I also like the track. Two years ago I won here and there´s more grip than the past. This result does not surprise me so much and I am sure I would have been able to find the same feeling also in Japan but the rain ruined my plans. I would like to dedicate this pole to my friend Kato.´

Dani Pedrosa (2nd):` I have mixed feelings about the practice. On one hand I am happy with second position, but at the same time I am worried by the performance of the bike, which is nowhere near how I like it. We are missing a lot of rear grip and the front is moving around a lot. At a bumpy circuit like this it is normal that the bike moves, but not so much.´

Pablo Nieto (3rd): `The team have worked really well, and this is a priority in achieving good results. The track is much improved compared to last year, and this is one of my favourite circuits. The race at Suzuka was a bit strange and now is when we really have to start picking up good results.´
