Quotes from the front row

Dani Pedrosa (1st): "The bike is still not at 100 per cent and the heat today gave us some problems with rear end grip. We have tried lots of different settings and we will make a final decision tomorrow depending on the weather. The times are very close and it is difficult to predict how the race will go because with the slipstreams here it will be tough to escape."

Alex De Angelis (2nd): "On the last lap I ran into some traffic and wasn't able to improve on my best lap – unlike Pedrosa. That doesn't change anything for tomorrow, although I would have liked to be on pole. The bike is okay."

Andrea Dovizioso (3rd): "The bike is running well – we just need to make some checks in the warm-up regarding tyre life. The engine was a little hot today so hopefully the weather is a little cooler tomorrow."

Gabor Talmacsi (4th): "This morning I was confident that I could lower my times from yesterday and I was satisfied that we did that this afternoon. This circuit seems to go really well for me and, although it will be a tough race tomorrow, I hope to be in the front group and fighting for my first ever podium."
