The times are confusing because the bikes are on different tyres. I think people need to start reading the FP results in a different way this year: take the top ten and take away the riders lapping on softer tyres, we are left with:

Bautista, Marquez, Smith, Lorenzo, Bradl, Rossi, Pedrosa, with 0.5 seconds gap between Bautista and Pedrosa.

That is no so strange considering Bautista, Smith and Bradl tested here two weeks ago and have a set up advantage, also Marquez is injured, and Qatar's track lack of grip is a problem for Pedrosa and also for Rossi and Lorenzo with this new tyre.

I think things will start going back to normal in the next races . Except for Espargaro, I think he'll will be a podium contender all year.
