Quotes from the front row

Manuel Poggiali (1st): `This track in the wet is very difficult to ride because the rear of the bike slides even in the straight. It is difficult and dangerous but I hope tomorrow to have the same conditions as yesterday because I had a good feeling with the bike. Fingers crossed!

Franco Battaini (2nd): I would prefer a dry race because with this asphalt there is no grip and even though I was fast today it is too easy to make a mistake. I have a good setting for the dry so that is what I hope for, although if it is wet I am confident.

Randy De Puniet (3rd): `I was good in then wet today but I prefer dry because in the rain it is very difficult to do 25 laps without crashing. Hopefully I will be on the podium.

Fonsi Nieto (4th): `We are working a lot with the setting of bike. On the first day I had suspension problems but in qualifying the bike was much better. In the dry I set good lap times and I think I can fight for the podium.
