Barring any incidents we know who the top 4 will be. To get top 5 would be an achievement for either rider. Bradl, Bautista, Aleix Espargaro, Dovi and Crazy Joe will have something to say about it though.

Not necessarily, Smith has finished in front of Pol every race they have finished. Smith is Riding like Luti in Moto 2, stars fast, drops back a little during the race to conserve tyres and comes back strong at the end of the race, every race, Pol has gotten in front only for Smith to re take the position and gap his teammate. if he's found something in testing that will enable him to retain that pace all the way through then there is no reason he cant achieve top 5.
