Capirossi trusting in Ducati

Reaction from Welkom: Ducati Marlboro Team

Loris Capirossi: "I'm very happy with today. It was a great session, but, of course, this is only Friday! The bike isn't yet perfect but I'm quite happy with the way it is at the moment.

"We are still working to get it spot on, but I believe in this bike's potential. I always trust Ducati and Ducati always trust me, it's a good partnership that produces good results. I want to say a special thanks to Michelin – I am the only rider using their 17in front tyre, but they are now developing the tyre especially for me."

Troy Bayliss: "There's a lot of stuff I'm working on here, we've just got to decide which direction to take on set-up. I've got one bike set up one way, while the other is different, plus I'm trying the 16.5 front for the first time in a while. We're working hard and we'll get there in the end."
