Quotes from the MotoGP front row

Sete Gibernau (1st): `This is a very nice moment – it has been a difficult week not only for our team but for everyone connected with the sport. More than anything I want to thank my team from the first person to the last, because they have really given me courage. We had some extra speed today because Daijiro was pushing us from above. We will need him again tomorrow.´

Valentino Rossi (2nd): `Today we had more problems than we had expected, so it was possible for us to improve only a little bit on our time from yesterday. We did a lot of work for the race, which I think will be very difficult because we will have to ride with hard tyres from the start. Pole went to Sete and I am happy for that because he is Kato´s team-mate – it is good like this.´

Max Biaggi (3rd): `Yesterday we had some problems with the engine but it was much better this morning and this afternoon. We spent time trying to find the right tyre for the race but I set a good lap which was enough for the front row. I am not on pole but I am happy for Sete and the rest of the Gresini team.´

Loris Capirossi (4th): `I am so happy to start from the front row. I crashed ten minutes from the end but it was no problem. The second bike was not so fast but I don´t mind that. The important thing is that we have a good setting for the race tomorrow.´
