we must remember that Philip Island is different than the new Silverstone in terms of characteristics, i believe the race is not as close as we might hope.
Philip Island (and 'old' Assen) characterised by long, fast, fluid corners with gentle kinks between straights, which allows slower bikes to be "towed" by faster bikes. this arrangement also provides variety of racing lines (just have a look at Mugello).
contrast with the new Silverstone, which characterised by long straights with many fast turns before slow ones, hence the high average speed (this arrangement very much like Sepang). i believe Sepang is the best indicator on how close racing is at the new Silverstone will be.
