Quotes from the protagonists of the first qualifying session

Alex De Angelis (1st): "I made a few changes to the suspension at the start of the session which worked well. I have a great feeling with the team, who are working really well, and the engine is very strong. I am glad to be back at the front of the grid."

Dani Pedrosa (2nd): "We had a few problems with the suspension in the afternoon but in the end we found the right setting and I was able to improve my position. For tomorrow we have more or less decided the setting – I think the times will depend a lot on the wind, which is very awkward because of the harsh blasts which can sometimes be dangerous and make you doubtful going into the corners".

Casey Stoner (crashed): "The bike seized and I landed on my bad shoulder, fracturing the collarbone in exactly the same place as at Brno. It is very painful and even though I want to ride the doctor says if something similar were to happen tomorrow then I would need surgery. I am 99% certain I won't ride but we will see how I feel in the morning."
