Gap between sponsored link and natural listings

Not sure if this has already been commented about in another thread, but over the last few days has anyone noticed the gap between the first sponsored link and where the natural search listings begin.

For example if I do a search for the car manufacturer "Fiat", I first get a sponsored link for Fiats main web site, then the natural listings start well down the screen?

Sounds like you are seeing one of Google's many tests for their search results page. I've tried every browser I have, logged in and logged out, and the gap that I see is what I'm used to seeing.

Thanks for spotting it.

I don't see it either but what I did notice is that .com has a much smaller font, maybe a new font face recently. Anybody else see this? More bang for your buck with a smaller font!
