If you read the press releases (excuse-o-rama to the cynical):
Spies' back up bike didn't have the same rear setup as his preferred bike and he couldn't do the same lap times with it. He takes the blame for getting into T2 too hot and crashing.
Rossi blames traffic for not being able to set a good qualifying time. Says he has the race pace, though.
Marky and Pedro say they are happy and don't mention their incident.
Nicky blames bad timing and getting caught up in traffic on his fast lap. He gives Dovi props and says he will be checking his data.
AI29 says he was out of soft tires and will push for a top 10 in the race.
Should be an interesting race.
