I'm not so sure Dungey was faster. The lapped Suzuki in front RV is what let Dungey past him. He may not have been able to get past RV otherwise.
Let me correct myself:
I don't think Dungey necessarily would have won. He did catch RV, but RV isn't an easy pass.
When they caught the lappet it was right at the track split, RV had the rider in his way and RD had a clear lane
