Cal Crutchlow powers to excellent second place...
 From Ducati:
 
Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team #35) – 2nd (1’28.642)
“I’m really pleased with the lap time we achieved in the end and second position is great for Ducati: I think we deserved that. It was a decision made at the start of qualifying to go out and push immediately with the ‘rain-ish’ conditions, and I set a good time. Then I changed tyres and went out again and set my best time! Tomorrow I’m sure it’s going to be a long and tough race. Phillip Island is a challenging circuit because the conditions can change every lap. I believe that tomorrow’s race start at 4 pm will make things more difficult because of the cooler temperatures. Hopefully we can use the asymmetric tyre in the front and the same as the other guys in the rear.”
 
Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team #04) – 10th (1’29.088)
“Today we were simply not able to make much improvement with the feeling of the GP14.2, but in qualifying we set some good lap times so that’s quite positive. Tomorrow’s race will for sure be difficult, but we have to believe in our abilities: here at Phillip Island over 27 laps the tyres drop off a lot, and anything can happen.”
