She generally runs 2-4 seconds slower than the top riders, which is darn fast,but this in GP this is a huge HUGE time difference. To put things in perspective. Lets look at the results this year in Jerez, a track she obviously knows well.... Pole for moto stock extreme (1000cc) in 2011. 1:41.618 Moto2 pole position 1:42.706 If Rossel were allowed to race her Kawa ZX ground missle in motogp, she would qualify 31 (1:45.068). Of course we know that is not possible, adding that she hardly knows assen as well as jerez and let alone the bike for comparision sake, lets assume the BEST situation and that she could ride the the aprox one second slower moto2 bike... that would put her on the Jerez moto2 grid... The result would be 38th on the grid on 13th row, essentially the last row.... GP is GP.
