Quotes from the front row

Valentino Rossi (1st): `We have moved on from the settings we had in the winter tests and have made a good result. It was possible to go for a fast flying lap at the end and it would have been possible to go a little better but there was a Kawasaki in the way.´

Loris Capirossi (2nd): `We learned a lot here during the tests in March but the conditions are totally different now – it´s much, much hotter now, so the track feels very slippery. Once again we are focusing on race settings, rather than a set-up that will give us a very fast one-off lap.´

Sete Gibernau (3rd): `The heat is incredible and that clearly influences performance, so our work alongside the Michelin technicians is very important. We have done some resistance tests to check the bike out, and we are analysing with Honda the problems we had in Mugello.

Shinya Nakano (4th): `From Mugello I have had a good feeling with the bike. The set-up has improved and now I can concentrate more on riding. I was very consistent throughout practice and tomorrow I will try to squeeze onto the front row for the race.´
