Together with Zarco on the Tech3 Yamaha, Aleix on the Aprilia is surely another big surprise. He was up there at the front pretty much the whole time, not just one single lap. Encouraging for Aprilia. Of course, it's just warm-up, so it all can change again when the race is really on, but it would be brilliant if he can somehow fight in the second group.

And how about the position (and company) Karel Abraham is in..? I don't think anybody has expected this from him after that very mediocre season in the Superbike world championship. And he has shown serious speed already quite a few times during winter testing. Amazing.

And of course, Rossi is another suprise so far, but in a rather different way. Still, I wouldn't be completely surprised if he'll be fighting for the podium after all. We keep getting plot twists.
