    Pi

    15 1minutes in to FP1 and MM is already into the 1.29's. He's looking very fast!

    Pi

    Miller, Iannone, and Polyccio all looked surprisingly stout in FP1. But i think some of them were out there on soft compounds at the end of the session.

    I like these fly aways. Nice to watch in the evening US time.

    And Miller only did that one lap into the 29's, the rest were north of 30, where as MM was banging them out!

    Many late risers on the leader board did the soft, MM all on the medium. Might get some rain.

    Yes an excellent job by Aleix & great to see Aprilia at the top of a time sheet, however I watched it live & he was slipstreaming Dovi when he cracked that lap & only did one other lap in 29's.
    Good riding by Aleix though, he has a very stable bike in the high speed corners compared to some other fast runners.
    MM did lots of laps in the mid to low 29's & is definitely the pace setter as usual.

    Nice to see an Aprilia at the top, however it happened. Marc doing Marc stuff went out at the end of the session on the hard front and was the only rider to do so. Q3 weather will be important.

    Go Aleix.
    Do not go gentle into that good night,
