Rossi was using Soft tires, I didn't see anyone else using them so that can explain the margin between him and 2nd placed rider.

I think Rossi was on new softs whereas others were on worn Medium/Hard.

It would be rather ironic if Jorge mostly delivered what he was hired for in his remaining tenure at Ducati.
