So it is not like the Yamaha is really much closer to the front then the ART bike was.
Obviously it is day one and everyone will go faster so let's see how the gap changes.
Lots of guys are on brand new bikes, both new to them and new in general. Lots can happen. But I wouldn't expect things to look too different either.
