I'm sure Tost is vastly experienced etc, but I just copied this from motogp.com.

"The 2008 MotoGP World Champion (Rossi) clocked a fastest time of 1 minute 22.550, around 1.5 seconds down on the time recorded by ex-Formula 1 king and regular Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen in a September test at the same circuit. Rossi undertook a total of 64 laps with the F2008, adorned with his trademark 46 racing number."

Rossi is superbly talented, agreed, but if a motorcycle racer can do this, are we really to believe what Tost says about Sebastien Loeb? I don't think so.
