Glad to see Maria Herrera back after recovering from her shoulder injury - and qualifying in the top 15.
Half a second is an unusual gap at the head of the field, but I imagine Moto3 will provide its customary race-long ruckus, culminating in a scuffle for position over the last couple of laps, before the final sprint to the flag. Great stuff - good luck to all.
