Perspectives from the front row in Assen

Manuel Poggiali, pole position:

´I think tomorrow´s race will be difficult but I am positive because the settings I have on the bike are very good. I hope for the same weather conditions as today and yesterday and I am confident that I will have a strong race.´

Randy de Puniet, 2nd position:

´I have been focussing on the bike set-up because since the first lap yesterday I have had many problems. I am working hard and I had a big crash this morning but I hope I have the speed to make a podium tomorrow.´

Toni Elias, 3rd position:

´I´m not sure what the race will be like tomorrow because I think we all have to keep an eye on the weather. It is possible that it might rain but I really hope not! Today I am happy because the bike is working well, I have a strong rhythm and the settings are good. Poggiali was very fast but the race is another story. I hope to start well and go with him.´

Fonsi Nieto, 4th position:

´I could not go any faster today but I am not worried about this because I was working all the time on getting the bike ready for the race and finding the right tyre. I had some problems with the rear tyre and we will have to work in the warm-up to find the solution but I am sure I can run at the front and I am hopeful of another podium.´
