Very surprising to see Marc at the top of the timesheets again, after all, he isn't "fully fit"...[\sarcasm off] He seems to have picked up where he left off at this event last year. Marquez, FP1: 9 laps excluding pit and outlaps... MM had 6 laps faster than AE's best. That's what his predecessor did when he was on it. 8 of his 9 laps were faster than VR's best lap. The rest of the field has some work to do to try to catch him. Of course, MM will explain it differently, something like: "it was very difficult out there, the others were so fast, but we will try our best....."
