Despite the resurfacing and effusive rider enthusiasm, Marquez's time is about a tenth shy of Lorenzo's pole lap last year. Any insight on track temps or other limiting factors?

I know, I know, first practice and all, but all this talk of records being overtaken by margins of a second or more in testing has raised my expectations.
