Quotes from the provisional front row

Valentino Rossi (1st): ` The bike is working well and feels very stable and very precise. There are a couple of parts of the circuit where we need to improve but we are in good shape after day one. The new pipes are very noisy and it was sometimes difficult to keep concentration. Tomorrow we will decide which bike to use – I am happy with both.

Max Biaggi (2nd): ` I guess that was quite a good lap time and I just tried to find my own speed out there and go my own way. We've got the same problems as before though, and the bike always feels light at the front end. We need to do something about that.

Loris Capirossi (3rd): `The bike is fine around most of the circuit, but we need to work on the new section, I need the bike to change direction more quickly.

Alex Barros (4th): `Because this track is so different to the others we didn´t have a good base set-up and had to make a lot of changes through the day. However, the team worked well and every time I went out I improved a little.
