Quotes from the provisional front row

Randy De Puniet (1st): "In the first part of the session I tried to set up the bike for the race but when I saw Guintoli in pole position I pushed hard and it was a fun French battle for pole. I know this is an important race with Aprilia facing Honda for the title but I will ride my own race and try and win."

Sylvain Guintoli (2nd): "Today my team gave me a great bike – I kept pole until a few laps from the end and this makes me really happy. It was my best session since the start of the season."

Franco Battaini (3rd): "I was doing well until I crashed out a few minutes before the end of the session. It was a pity but the bike is fine and I am sure we can do better tomorrow."

Manuel Poggiali (4th): "This morning I made a stupid mistake in the wet and crashed at the first right hander. This afternoon the conditions were much better and I was able to lap as I wanted. I am still not 100% fit but the worst of my cold is over and I'm sure I will be okay for the race."
