Rossi faster than Stoner in 2011..
QATAR: Stoner crashed out 2010, trying to out run Rossi, who had just cleared the field and moved into 2nd, scared another Laguna 08 would develop.
Stoner said he was slowing when he crashed but had just set the fastest lap of the race. He binned it @ turn 4 after setting the fastest sector 1 time of the race, faster than he'd done on his fastest lap of the race..He wasn't slowing down at all, just making the usual excuses.
ESTORIL: Rossi's fast lap was 0.694 faster than Stoner 2010.
LEMANS: Rossi's fast lap was 1.304 faster.
MUGELLO: Rossi's fast lap was 1.695 faster. His race time 37sec faster.
BRNO: Rossi's fast lap was 0.277 faster. His race time was 5sec faster.
INDY: Rossi's fast lap was 0.298 faster.
MISANO: Rossi's fast lap was 0.202 faster. His race time was 5sec faster.
At Estoril, LeMans and Mugello..Rossi's race time 2011 was faster than the 2010 winner which leads one to believe, had he been on a D16 in 2010 Rossi would have won races.
This is in the record book. The races were dry. Let the twisted Orange panties fly.
