Top end may be over rated, but I don't ever remember seeing a disparity of speeds like I saw at Qatar in '07. I remember Rossi chasing down Stoner lap after lap and passing him near the end of the lap, only to have Stoner motor by him down the straight, no drafting required, and lead by 8 bike lengths into T1!?! Lap after lap! It looked like Rossi "dropped a cylinder", as they would say in NASCAR.
