Oh, so close

Taken from this: 'Alonso clocked one minute 45.654 seconds to edge Hamilton by just 0.098secs, despite the Englishman leading for most of the session. The day's first session saw Hamilton narrowly beat title rival Felipe Massa by just 0.080secs.'

Are the words, 'just' and 'edge' and 'narrowly' really necessary? All F1 seems to come down to impossibly small margins in time so it seems pointless to continually emphasis the differences as if they are somehow significant. Yes it's literally true he narrowly beat him, but it's always narrow, isn't it?
