Hèctor Barberà – – 6th fastest lap time in 2’03.876
“I am so happy about this best qualifying result of the season, but I’m even happier about the fact that I felt so good on my Ducati Desmosedici this afternoon. It is really important to be on the second row for tomorrow, because this gives us the best chance for a brilliant race. I feel comfortable and I’m really looking forward to tomorrow, although I hope it isn’t going to rain. I’m just 0.5 seconds away from today’s quickest rider, Alvaro Bautista, and this gives me a lot of confidence for the race. Once again, I have to say thanks to my entire team for doing a great job today.”

Francesco Guidotti –- Pramac Racing Team Manager –
“”With today’s changing weather, we started at the beginning this afternoon with clear ideas, looking to set a quick lap time. We managed it and this allowed us to make a big step forward on the timesheet, stopping the clock with a great lap time and achieving the second row on the grid. Today we enjoyed our best 2012 campaign result in a qualifying session, and now we hope to also keep the same level tomorrow during the race.”
