Even more of a lottery then.
So, mandatory pit stop like PI 2013 then?

Interesting FP1 session. Still anyone's guess at who can win this race. Times may set qualifying order since rain is on the way for FP2 and into tomorrow.

Not sure what we can tell from that session as the track was very green (times still just over a second off the lap record).

Dovi, Marc, Rossi all looked comfortable (well, Mark nearly crashed several times but still)

Jorge looked stroppy

Mav did not look so at home

Zarco was miles off until the last few minutes

Hopefully FP2 will be dry and we will get a bit more info
