OK - this was a complete roll-of-the-dice session whose results mean nothing other than Jack Miller is an ace in mixed conditions. Interestingly, though, since the last GP last year, Valencia 2016, this is the first time that Valentino finishes any test, free practice, or qualifying session in front of Maverick ! There you go : a little fun statistic ! :-)
