Javi happy with position, but not time.

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Javi Fores ended the first day of qualifying at Magny-Cours with the fifth fastest time, but is eager for a top four spot. Small front fork problems hindered his charge for the front row, but he is confident he will improve in tomorrow's qualifying. Michel Fabrizio (Honda) posted the day's fastest lap, with a time of 1:44.1132, with Kevin Curtain (Yamaha) second, Fabien Foret (Honda) third and Broc Parkes (Yamaha) fourth.

Javi - 5th, 1:45.027 I am happy enough with my position but not so happy with the lap time. I had some problems with the set-up of the front fork and so could not push as hard as I wanted to in the corners. We will talk to our suspension technician in the morning and see if we can make some improvements. If we can get the bike to work a little bit better, I feel sure that I can be on the front row of the grid - and that is my aim.
