Quotes from the front row

Toni Elias (1st): "I am happy because I set five laps today which were close to my best time and I was able to lower my pole lap, if only by a little bit. There will be a high pace at the start of the race on fresh tyres and the other guys will make it difficult for me, but I will be looking to escape from them as soon as possible."

Manuel Poggiali (2nd): "We solved yesterday's problems and I feel ready to fight for the podium. The choice of tyres will be important especially with the temperature. I feel confident and relaxed because Aprilia is giving me great support and a fantastic bike."

Roby Rolfo (3rd): "The chassis and engine look competitive here and I am optimistic about tomorrow. Elias looks strong and it will be tough for us to follow him, but I think I will be fighting hard in the chasing group."

Randy De Puniet (4th): "I am still fourth fastest but today I worked hard to improve the setting of my Aprilia. When I used the race tyres my pace was good enough so I feel confident for the race. I tried to improve my feeling with the new brake system which I will use for the rest of the season."
