Then again, I was wrong about something once before.......
The Duc giving up 17kph on the straights is huge, over a kilometer straight (and there are a few of them) you are talking a 0.10 or so, that is 2 full seconds over the course of the race.
Argon, Monza, Siverstone, Assen, Miller, all have very long straights, those are tracks where you can effectively count out the duc, just on high speed.
