6th Álvaro Bautista: 1.46.174 (17 laps)
“There was another rider trying to get a tow off me so I closed the line a little, hit a bump and I lost the front of the bike. I was all over the place from the previous corner and I couldn’t save it. During qualifying we tried a few things and at the end I felt a little better – mainly with the tyres, on the rear and front. We ruled out a front and we have a clear idea about which rear we like. Our pace is good – maybe not the same as the guys in front but not far off. We’ll have to work more for the race and keep our fingers crossed for the weather.”

8th Héctor Faubel: 1.46.360 (19 laps)
“This is the second consecutive race that we’re starting from the second row and that is our target. We’re close to the lead riders – there are obviously three guys with a better pace than everybody else but as long as I am in the fight to stay with them I’ll be satisfied. The track conditions are much better in the dry. It was really slippery in the wet yesterday, especially in the first section. The more the bikes have been out there the better the grip has got and now we’re having fun at Indianapolis. We’ll work more on the gear ratio in the warm-up because that’s where we’re suffering the most. I think if nothing strange happens like Misano we can get a good result tomorrow.”
