2005 Supersport World Championship
Round 4, Monza, Italy
Final qualifying, Saturday 7th May
Circuit: 5.793 kms Weather: Dry, sunny 25 C.

ROW THREE FOR JAVI.
Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Javier Fores failed to improve on his position from yesterday and will start the Supersport World Championship race at Monza tomorrow from the third row of the grid. Suspension problems were the main reason for his inability to move up the grid and so he will face a hard task to get into the leading group at the start of tomorrow's 16-lapper. Hondas continued their Supersport domination today, with Sebastien Charpentier taking pole position ahead of his team mate Katsuaki Fujiwara. Third quickest was Gianluca Nannelli (Ducati), with Michel Fabrizio (Honda) fourth.

JAVIER FORES - 11th, 1:54.313
I was not so happy yesterday and I am not so happy today either. I had many suspension problems today and also a small engine problem and that was enough to prevent me from advancing up the grid. Tomorrow I will try some different settings and see if we can find some improvements. It is going to be hard starting from the third row, but I am going to try and get a really good start and hopefully finish in the top six. That, and being the best Suzuki, is my aim.

Final qualifying
1 Charpentier (F-Honda) 1:51.730, 2 Fujiwara (J-Honda) 1:52.126, 3 Nannelli (I-Ducati) 1:52.364, 4 Fabrizio (I-Honda) 1:52.700, 5 Curtain (Aus-Yamaha) 1:53.092, 6 Corradi (I-Ducati) 1:53.539, 7 Sanna (I-Honda) 1:53.542, 8 Veneman (NL-Suzuki) 1:53.843, 9 Chambon (F-Honda) 1:54.007, 10 Parkes (Aus-Yamaha) 1:54.218, 11 FORES (E-Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra) 1:54.313,
