Yeah, I don't buy that. Apart from the fuel consumption difference already pointed out, the two Hondas gapped CC every time down the straight so that he spent the rest of the lap closing the gap again only to lose it again next time. Rossi didn't lose anything on the straight. Maybe not just the engine I'll grant you, maybe ability to get the power down as well but the difference was significant in my (possibly biased ) eyes.
