"It is impossible to know how fast Lorenzo could have gone if he had been pushed by his rivals for longer."
No it isn't.
When Rossi needed to go flat out he got down to his qualifying pace, 1:55.7.
Lorenzo's qualifying pace was 1:54.7. I have no doubt that Lorenzo could have banged out low 1:55 high 1:54s throughout the second half of the race if it were necessary.
I mean Lorenzo did a 1:55.5 on full tanks on lap 2!
He was in a totally different class to all of the riders, including Rossi, when it comes to race pace in Qatar.
