Gibernau heads fellow Honda rider Nicky Hayden, and the surprise package of John Hopkins on the Suzuki. Reigning champion Valentino Rossi is down in fifth, behind Marco Melandri, and is the only Yamaha in the top eight, with team-mate Colin Edwards in ninth. Brits Shane Byrne and James Ellison are in 19th and 22nd.
