Quotes from the provisional front row

Fonsi Nieto (1st): ` We have started really well today – in the morning I tested a lot of things which had good results and in the afternoon I concentrated on getting a rhythm together and picking my lines. This is one of my favourite circuits – last year I finished second after starting from pole´.

Manuel Poggiali (2nd): ` This is the first time on 250 here for me and the difference compared with the 125 bike is quite big. That's why I was not able to improve my lap time in the final part: making my trajectory I had not enough time to change the gear and I lost the chance. Anyway I feel confident because we found the right pace.´.

Randy De Puniet (3rd): `I don´t like this circuit and with my damaged shoulder I have to say third place is above my expectations. I could lap quickly without pushing too hard and I could have gone even faster but for traffic ´.

Roberto Rolfo (4th): ` We dedicated most of the day to working on the rolling chassis, very important on a circuit like Donington Park. At the end of the day I felt we are very close to the optimum set up. The new fairing has really improved the aerodynamics of the machine and combined with the evolution of the engine allowed me to set very fast times´.
