Second row for Chiarello.

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Riccardo Chiarello ended final qualifying with the sixth fastest time after suffering from rear suspension problems today. The team tried a slightly different rear set-up today, but struggled to make a big improvement from yesterday. Sofuoglu (Yamaha) took pole position, ahead of Scassa (Yamaha), Badovini (MV) and Roccoli (Yamaha).

Riccardo Chiarello - 6th. We changed the rear suspension set-up, but then I could not open the gas hard without the bike sliding. So we will return to our Friday set-up in the warm-up tomorrow and hope that it will be good for the race.

Xavi happy

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavier Simeon is looking forward to tomorrow's 12-lap race after ending fifth quickest in qualifying. But for a lot of traffic on his hot lap, Xavi would've had a front row grid place, but the young Belgian is nonetheless ready to challenge the leaders. Tiberio (Honda) took pole today, with Corti (Yamaha) second, Canepa (Kawasaki) third and Berger (Honda) fourth.

Xavier Simeon - 5th. I am very satisfied today and know that I should've been on the front row of the grid, but for the traffic. I would like to make a good start and then fight with the leaders and, if I can do that, then I think I can make a good result. That's what I'll be chasing right from the start.
