Quotes from the provisional front row

Manuel Poggiali (1st): `I worked in order to be at 100% for the race testing different suspension regulations and several tyres. Here we already got a good base and during last winter tests we made the major part of the work so today we just refined that material. My objective is the improvement of the feeling with the bike and I feel quite satisfied about it.

Fonsi Nieto (2nd): `The last lap behind Poggiali was fast, but this is not important. Principally we are working on the set-up of the bike to find a good rhythm for the race on Sunday. Second place on the provisional grid is good, but the main thing is to set a fast rhythm and at the moment I don\'t have that because I can\'t open the gas when I want to.

Randy De Puniet (3rd): `The slip was really stupid – I was riding slower because I decided to come in and change the tyre. When I entered the first corner I tried a different line and fell – no damage. Anyway, the session was quite positive.´
