2nd Alvaro Bautista: 1.53.447 (20 laps):
“The result is good but I think that if it wasn’t for traffic over the final few laps I could have improved my time. I’m satisfied because the rhythm is quite good and if the weather tomorrow is like it was this afternoon then I think we have the set-up to fight for a good result. I aim for the best possible result in every race and if I can win tomorrow I’ll obviously go for it. If not I’ll just do my best. It’s difficult to escape here because of the long straight, which makes slipstreaming so important, but we have a strong pace. I’ll just try to get the best out of the set-up of my Aprilia and try to enjoy riding it!”

12th Hector Faubel: 1.54.578 (19 laps):
“I’m happy because today was the best I’ve felt with this bike. I saw that I’m capable of running at the front and even though I start from twelfth the lap times are really close and with a decent start I can have a good race and continue to improve, which is the most important thing. If my best result this season was a ninth then the target for tomorrow is eighth. seventh. as high as possible! The only tactic I can have for the race is to go hard from the start and make up as many positions as I can. Hopefully I can stay in the second group. I like this circuit and I want to do well here. I’m angry because I’m only a tenth off eighth on the grid but I’ll take my frustration out on the track.”
