If you put the 'best' on a machine that is unassailable & so much better than the bulk of the field - then how do you know he's the best?
For all we know, the top CRT rider, Espagaro MIGHT be better than Lorenzo! We cannot know FOR SURE now can we?
We can say that JL is the best rider on a factory bike, and that the factory bikes are faster and with better tech / rider aids / strategies than anything else. Nothing more than that, as no-one else has a fair shot at racing them.
MotoGp has been like a Le Mans 24-Hr race - except at least there they point out that the cars run in different classes, and that a tin-top isn't classified in the same results sheet as a prototype.
