Quotes from the front row in Jerez

Quotes from the front row in Jerez

Quotes from the front row in Jerez

Loris Capirossi (1st): ` This is so great – a special day for Ducati. I´m very proud to give the factory it´s first MotoGP pole position – I´m an Italian rider, my bike is Italian, so this also very special for me.´

Troy Bayliss (2nd): `We spent most of the session messing about with race tyres, and it seemed a lot of the other guys were already throwing in soft tyres, so we went that way too, and as soon as we stuck in a soft rear – bang – we did some good laps. We´re looking okay on race set-up, but not spectacular.´

Max Biaggi (3rd): ` Thanks to the team because today I felt much more comfortable than yesterday. On Friday I lacked confidence because I did not feel happy with the front wheel and this made me lose time in the fast corners. So, after the qualifying yesterday I was a bit nervous but I have to say I like having Sito (Pons) as a team manager because he´s a former rider and can understand how a rider feels in these situations.´

Tohru Ukawa (4th): `The race is going to be very tough tomorrow and to get a good start and get away will make things a bit easier. But this is my first front row of the year and I will try my best to take advantage of that´
